The more I look at the complexeties of living organisms...the more I'm convenced there is a creator...or maybe a whole bunch of creators...

Man can fight over assigning this creator, or these creators, personalities, and political motives...

But all that aside...life did not simply evolve, invent itself, out of dead matter...

LOL! You guys are like crack in the head. What shooting stars ;-)
Tsk! Tsk! You don't really have a Zen approach to things! Remember my little essay on pain and pleasure? Question: What would be the equation if say, birds or cats or dinosaurs, had 1 or 2 bit responses to pain and pleasure, but quantified on a two or three bit level of parallelism?

You know, I used to think we were all the same inside, like the "rainbow power" preachers like to claim. Bad assumption! Bad monkey! Bad me! ;D

nothing is created in a void or vaccum...

And dead rocks, hot lava, cannot, will not, ever produce life...never....

The process has to be started and generated by a creator...

You don't get 'guts'...and strands of DNA, RNA with millions of coded messages, out of inatimate space dust...

So now an evolutionist has an idea of Perfection as opposed to Random. lol!
Way to go to have a TOE in your mouth!
Perfection is in the eye of the beholder.

I could say more, but that would not be perfect!

Jesus perhaps but where does it state in the Bible that God has a physical body? Is the Jewish/Christian/Moslem god not a spiritual being?

No reason to assume the presence of sexual organs. That would presume there was a god of another gender to...

So the dust on the ground hypothesis presented in Genesis is wrong?

What about it just arising out of the primordial ooze?

Then why do the cells develop an immunity to some things after being exposed to it?

No, you gave a classic example of an Argument From Ignorance.

Scientists look at what they do not understand and try to figure out how to understand it.

Of course you don't know that, you are just projecting ad going with a 'feeling'.

IF there were some kind of God involved...he is long gone.

Actually totally empty space is an impossibility in our universe.

And you what is your evidence that abiogenesis is impossible. It would be nice to know so that we can alert those who are currently studying this problem that they are wasting their time.

Based on this premise:
"Hydrogen is the raw fuel that most stars 'burn' to produce energy. The same process, known as fusion, is being studied as a possible power source for use on earth. The sun's supply of hydrogen is expected to last another 5 billion years."
We know that STARS did it and life was created on earth.
Now if we go further back, how do we explain the birth of a star? Which element was created first?
The Bible claims water was first.

If EVERYTHING has to have a creator, then God had to have one. You can't have it both ways

They don't. The ones without the immunity just die off.

Yes, and luckily there is no such thing as a void or vacuum outside of a black hole.

Yes, and oxygen did not appear until long after the first stars appeared. So the Bible is wrong again.
