"...stretches my imagination beyond it's limits."<quoted text>
The foundation of the Evolutionits theory,is that nonliving,nonintelligent matter,was able,over a period of billions of years,to evolve into a living cell,which in turn was able to evolve into many living species,including human kind.
That this nonliving non intelligent matter,was ,somehow, able to evolve into a living species,specifically,mankind,p reviously nonexistent,stretches my imagination beyond it's limits.
Science has not been able to explain how this process took place,nor duplicate that process.If you can neither explain or duplicate the process on which your foundation is based,then your theory collapses,due to the unreliability of the evidence that is used to support it.
Science has,by it's own admission,been unable to explain how life came into existence.
I have posed that question on several occassions and no one has been able to or attempted to provide the answer.
Basically,If one believes that nonliving and non intelligent matteer was able to create the most intelligent species, among others on this planet, and that this intelligent species,with all it's intellect is unable to duplicate this process or provide data as to how this process took place,leads one to the absurd conclusion that,nonintelligence was able to accomplish what human intelligence has been unable to accomplish.In other words,non intelligence is more intelligent than intelligence...
That,my good man,is logically impossible.
You err,when you state that my faith is an idea for which I can provide no evidence. Read my posting to Satan Priest and you willsee precisely what my faith is based on,how I HAVE TESTED IT and found it to be true...
Nevertheless,you are entitled to your opinion.....
That's the key problem with Creationists. Lack of imagination. And lack of imagination necessarily limits your reasoning skills. If just stub up and refuse to consider an idea then you aren't going to put in the due diligence required to assess that idea completely.
Science does not have a solid understanding of how "life" began. I think Q answered you on this pretty well, or he was replying to someone else. Either way scroll back to see his answer.
There are tons of ideas about how life got its start. And all of them have some degree of evidence. But here's the sucky part about it, I think. Even if we are able to successfully "create life" in a lab to the degree that even the most callous-knuckled Creationist has to accept it that still does not mean we know how life got started. It could have happened by some other mechanism that for the moment eludes our detection.
We're talking about something(s) that happened billions of years ago. Not exactly easy to figure out.
Meanwhile the Creationists opened an old book, read a verse, closed it, and were satisfied. So much for the spirit of curiosity and learning.
