no,it was a curse from God because of eve's sin. we have a reasonable and legitimate answer that explains it all plus shows that women do not get away from being punished in God's kingdom whenthey commit sin.
But all the other placental mammals feel pain during childbirth as well. Its not a human thing. Its a mammal thing. Have you ever seen a dog give birth. Its definitely painful for the dog. They don't just lay down and have the puppies crawl out. Did God curse the dogs, cats, bears and whales along with Eve?
I'm not sure if there is pain in laying eggs for oviparous animals like birds and reptiles. But i'd imagine that there is some pain from pushing out an egg. Did God curse the robins, hawks and crocodiles as well?
if life started on its own, it certainly did not need an invisible process to alter its mechanism of producing life and make it the same as the Biblical way. have you ever noticed how close the evolutionary theory has changed to be more like th eBible--that is because if it didn't, people would stop believing in the theory.
The Theory of Evolution has NOT changed to become more like the Bible. I've read Darwin and I've read the Bible (countless times). I've also read many recent papers and books on the Theory of Evolution as it stands currently. There is no significant trend of the Theory of Evolution toward Biblical congruency. The Theory of Evolution has changed toward better explanations of life as we see it through scientific inquiry. Thats what a theory does. Thats what Gravitational, Atomic, Nuclear, Evolutionary and Relativity Theories ALL do. They change to better explain the natural universe. If they didn't do THIS then people would stop believing them as we have with many previous theories like Aether, Cold Fusion and Geocentricism.
Please stop telling people you are a Christian. You're ruining it for many of us.
Or maybe you should read some St. Augustine.
St. Augustine of Hippo writes:
It not infrequently happens that something about the earth, about the sky, about other elements of this world, about the motion and rotation or even the magnitude and distances of the stars, about definite eclipses of the sun and moon, about the passage of years and seasons, about the nature of animals, of fruits, of stones, and of other such things, may be known with the greatest certainty by reasoning or by experience, even by one who is not a Christian. It is too disgraceful and ruinous, though, and greatly to be avoided, that he [the non-Christian] should hear a Christian speaking so idiotically on these matters, and as if in accord with Christian writings, that he might say that he could scarcely keep from laughing when he saw how totally in error they are
Pay attention because while many scientists are laughing at your error many Christians are pained by the hubris your error has developed in you.
