Has anyone else ever heard of this myth where two single cells, one from a man and one from a woman, combine to create a whole new human complete with all necessary organs, little fingers and toes, and its own new little personality?! It’s Completely Crazy if you ask me.
Really… I know – I don’t believe it either. But I keep hearing it around everywhere so I figured I’d blog about it.
In this myth, the man and woman usually don’t even know when they are putting these cells together either. The man places millions of these special cells inside a woman’s body and, if it’s the correct ~magical~ time, a single cell from the woman’s body is there waiting (I won’t even address the spin-off myths I’ve heard that involve multiple female cells meeting with multiple male cells and creating multiple humans at the same time – some people have quite the nerve to spread these fantastical stories). Anyway, the two cells meet up, merge into one, start dividing into more cells, all the while journeying to this area of the woman’s body that supposedly helps to create new life. The mass of cells grows in number continuously until a little human is formed. Inside of a woman! In a freakin’ biological bag filled with fluid! That sustains this new life while it’s developing!
A new human forms from just two tiny cells? Give me a break.
Just wait... it gets better.
So then, when the new human has developed enough, all sorts of things happen to the woman’s body to allow the new human to be pushed out into the world, From. Her. Va.gina. (seriously, where do they come up with this stuff??) I have heard it said that the human can also be removed surgically – simply bizarre.
Do people really think they can just make up any kind of stories they want and others will just believe them without question??
Well, I do know one thing - I DONT BELIEVE THIS MYTH.
Yeah – I POAS. Of course – it was negative. Just like I knew it would be.
