Bringing together non-believers …

Babies are the craziest possible reason to believe in God. 


Ever heard the phrase that children come from God? This is a very common misconception by religious folks. Children don’t come from God! 
Infact child bearing always presents a danger to the life of the mother and child. It looks more ungodly than godly. We, humans have mammalian reproduction apparatus. 

But because we became bipedal just before our brains (and thus our heads) started getting bigger, our hips “rotated” inward, compared to our ancestors (and our cousins, the chimps), meaning the birth canal got narrower. We thus developed neoteny (born somewhat premature) under strong evolutionary pressure, and have a high likelihood of problems during childbirth, including death of the mother, trying to push a watermelon out of a garden hose.

Is this the idea of an intelligent designer? A problematic child bearing process? Really?
