I'm glad you agree.
Yes, those clever single celled amoebas were able to draft out millions of different animals from the hugest dinosaurs to the teeniest bed bug (and beds weren't even created yet!) and not only the male human but they were able to figure out the reproductive organs for both male and female humans with mammary glands to feed the newborn as well. Just think what we could have been like if we came from multi-celled amoebas!

Yes, it is. As allegory, it's beautiful.

But it's entirely too childish and silly to be taken literally. Yet I'm amazed how many people cling to it as truth.

Have you ever considered starting a "First Church of the Single Celled" god?

no, in fact, many of the religious people I knew growing up had only one functioning synapse between the two brain cells in their sparse craniums, so no need to. They already have churches for the morons.
