the regeneration of the species, could the reproductive organs have come first?
It seems to me that it makes no difference. The incredible diversity of the human body, mind and soul, is beyond the knowledge of religion or science and regardless of where one starts in the consideration of the evolutionary theory of mankind, the absolute impossibility of it is apparent from the first moment and this impossibility MULTIPLIES with further consideration.
And so I would have to thing I have not exaggerated and even, to think that the impossibility as I have portrayed it - of evolution according to Darwin - is even more pronounced.
It is not a hard task to show Darwin's evolution as something impossible - even I can do it - and the answer is that this theory is wrong!
Even science has proved it wrong and has provided more then sufficient material proof.
And if evolution of the astonishing body of the human being is quite impossible through evolution, then what is left?

It then has to be by design - not accident.

And who is the designer? or do we have a design but no designer?
Sanity tells us that there has to be a designer.
Having looked at the sheer impossibility of Darwin's theory of evolution of the body, a further step is required in considering the existence of the human soul.
Of course, science may claim the human has no soul, or that what is thought of as the human soul, is actually bio-electronical (or perhaps there is another scientific scenario I have not yet heard).
The scientific mind would normally also require the exclusion of God from all such consideration!
If science baulks at the existence of the human soul, then it would react violently to the further consideration of the human person as the basic entity of the human.
That is to say, that the human
person is that entity of the human being that has in its control (or part control) the human soul and the human body.
What I am saying of course is that the human being consists of the person who is given a soul and a body - not just an incredible body beyond comparison and not just an even more incredible soul as part and parcel, but including the inner person who is capable of wielding and shaping this soul and body!
And I base this contention on Jesus Christ Who, The Church teaches, is the very Person of The Son of God, Who has taken to Himself, with the co-operation of The Immaculate Conception, a human soul and a human body.
It is the Person of Jesus Christ Who is God, not His body or soul - even though by taking these to Himself He has sprayed, so to speak, the light of Divinity upon them.
The Church teaches that Jesus is absolutely a human being as well as being God.
Therefore all human beings are in imitation of Jesus Christ.
Therefore all human beings consist of a person to whom God has given a body and a soul.
The impossible scientific theory of evolution has of course, long been surpassed in this musing, as the Truth of the spiritual nature of man is considered.
Yet the greatest fact is yet to proceed from these thoughts for if The Person of Jesus Christ issues directly from The Eternal-father, as all Christianity demands, then so must the
person of each and every human being, proceed directly from The Eternal-father!
So I consider the following as the reality.
The Eternal-father, knowing Joe from eternity, brings forth the person, who is Joe. God's knowledge of Joe IS the very person of Joe - just as is the very Person of The Son.
God then allocates to Joe a body and a soul and directs him to use this body and soul in a full and proper manner so that he may attain Eternal-life and assist others in attaining this.
This
full and proper manner is detailed in the Ten Commandments and in the Commandments of Christ and His Church.
Thou are Peter
P 47 16 17 And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven.
47 16 18  And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
47 16 19  And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.

The Orthodox have trouble accepting this passing on of power and authority to Peter and all Popes succeeding Peter.
Because they are not in communion with The Church this part of Scripture must be a nagging thorn in their conscience.
Protestants probably have numerous methods of evading this issue probably  by claiming the power was given to Peter and stopped there or that the devil has taken over The Church and the Pope is the anti-christ.
No matter how non-Catholics evade the issue, in their hearts they must be bewildered, in ignoring their self-deception.
The words of Christ
I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven, can only mean that Peter will lead his followers into The Kingdom; that Peter will show Christians how to enter The Kingdom.
What else can it mean?
Whoever has the keys to the household allows or disallows entrance. He brings his guests to the door opens it for them and gives them entrance.
What more can the
keys to The Kingdom mean?

They are spiritual keys
and they only refer to Truth.

Jesus is Truth-personified and He brought Truth to creation, the great Gift of Himself.
He is
the way, which means He tells us how to gain Eternal-life - that is, Truth - and it is this Gift that Jesus passes on to His Apostles, first of all to Peter.
Jesus tells them to be His witnesses - witnesses to what? Witnesses to Truth, of course. That's what witnesses are all about.
It is the prime duty of the Apostles to pass on The Truth to all the world and to all generations.
Therefore, it is the prime duty of the Pope, successor of Peter to pass on The Truth, and to pass on The Truth does not mean to pass on deception or lies.
This is transparently the case, to anyone with common sense, but it is more so because Jesus Himself says so when He
