Most people are somewhat familiar with the Bible and the Book of Genesis. According to its first chapter, God created man (male and female) in his own image on the sixth day, blessed them and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it.”
Being a scientist, I rarely quote the Bible in my professional work. However, I think it is fair to say that humankind has been quite successful as a species. We have multiplied and now have a relatively advanced knowledge and understanding of natural science, the human anatomy and nature and biology as such.
