For the many of board members who never had to struggle with embryology, the testes
are originally close to the kidneys. I cannot grasp how the Lord brought it about that the
testes should keep moving toward the pelvis, passing between the layers of the abdominal
muscles and into the scrotum. I'm not religious, but I can understand the temptation to
believe in "intelligent design". I don't see any way just evolution could have done it.
Teleologically, the development of the sperm is favored by the somewhat lower tempreature
in the scrotum. Though it puts the testes at risk of external violence. (Cringe, cringe)
