Science in the Bible – Seed of Life

(2 Minute Read)

Until a few centuries ago, it was thought that the Seed of Life resided solely in the male. People believed that the female simply incubated the male’s seed.

However, the Bible taught that both male and female had the Seed of Life.

Speaking to the Serpent in the Garden of Eden around 6,000 years ago, the Lord God mentioned the woman’s seed:
“And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
(Genesis 3:15)

Speaking to Abraham around 2,000 BC, the Lord God referred to the man’s seed:
“Indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your seed shall possess the gate of their enemies. In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Genesis 22:17-18)

Today we know, just as the Bible indicated thousands of years ago, that the seed of both male and female are required to produce offspring.

The theory of evolution cannot explain how the complex male and female reproductive organs evolved simultaneously. The Bible says that from the Beginning, Yahweh created male and female in order to propagate the human race and all the various animal kinds. There was no evolution of reproductive organs. Yahweh created the reproductive capabilities from the beginning in working order and instructed Adam and Eve to use them to populate the earth. His first recorded command to Adam and Eve was to “Be fruitful and multiply.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:27-28)

Science Catches Up to the Bible

Thousands of years before man discovered that both men and women possessed the Seed of Life, the Bible mentioned it.

Although the Bible is not primarily a science textbook, it does hint at many scientific truths like this one and like those mentioned in this Science in the Bible series, truths that long pre-date their discovery by today’s scientists. This is strong evidence of divine authorship of the Bible.

Questions to Ponder

1. What logistical nightmare would interfere if male & female reproductive organs had to evolve simultaneously?
2. What caused the persistence of the error that only males produced reproductive seed?

Share your thoughts on these questions in the comments below. It could encourage or help another reader.
