Ah, you want to know what I believe so you can debunk it right? I am not claiming anything to be "true" but like most physicists do I wonder if there is intelligent life out there or we wouldn't be spending billions of dollars building SETI.

You might as well have. You are saying that since we don't have an unreasonably thorough explanation of how life started on earth that some inexplicable "force" must have been responsible. As was already mentioned, this is an appeal to ignorance, and it does not make any sense. 10000 years ago you might have been telling us that lightning is so mysterious that aliens must be responsible.

That was the conclusion I drew, also.

SETI is a non-profit corporation that is funded purely on donations. It does not receive tax dollars.

The root word for the word THEORY means contemplation of divine things or organization (cosmos) of nature, and devine is pertaining to God and the hypothetical law and explanation of how the cosmos works in a systematic way.

All things that are not alive like rocks were created at the beginnning at once and not over a long period of time and they do not expand or extend to dvide into branches, living things on the other hand propagate through patterned instructions or seed and they multiply in their original kind with changes if needs be to be fruitful in a given environment.

And Mav, this is from the Discover article:

Yes, like ERV's, and ancestral genes. Those were never considered to be junk.
Please try to understand the articles that you link.
As I have said time after time, "junk DNA" is a term similar to "UFO" when the DNA is identified it is no longer "junk".
In other words: Wrong Maz, try again.
Exactly what is being referenced as "junk" DNA? I ask specifically because, how would any rational scientist label any DNA as "junk" when all DNA has yet to be totally defined as to it's individual functions within the strands of?
For example, would the DNA of an onion be considered "junk", when it lends to science the ability to possibly witness the creation and mutation of bochulism, when handled incorrectly?

Seriously...and that's not "just more nothing but copy and paste hot air BS and question" question....

I DISAGREE in a BIG way-because MANY MANT rocks were most likely alive at some point in time....evolved and THEN fossilized.

Are you THAT STUPID? Maybe that's why you chained to sum mastuh. Twits usually are.

From the BBC:
"Science shows that the Biblical creation story is not literally true, and demonstrates that Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden are myths and not historical figures.
This destroys the idea of original sin as being caused by the misbehaviour of the first man and woman, and the idea of inheriting guilt or punishment for that misbehaviour.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/chris...
and the error of the ignorance of your OWN denial.

The OT is FULL of the wretchedness of sinners!!

Course-a LOT of people already KNOW that.

NO...

A Hint--the Bible is just ONE book, containing many chapters of the " world civ as some saw it". NOT a telebision series with before and after sequels.
That's why we have SCIENCE.

What thing are you talking about?
Even Einstien didn't "know it all" because there's NO such thing.

And RATIONAL people realize that--unless they're some sort of sociopathic, degenrate, delusional control FREAK...that can only WISH there were.

Your poor son-does he report to you how many times he brushes his teeth daily? My sympathies to him.

Then creationists by said definition must be animals for having no conscience. Or maybe Maz has it but just isn't listening.
Some have certainly acted like it over centuries...just like some "non-creationists" have as well.

Muh critters-including the CAT, don't mess with the chickens either.

I taught 'em better than that...as best anyone can teach critters anyway lol.

He correctly predicted part of that picture though. And that's why evolution is the only game in town in biological circles.
That's why we have PHYSICS too :-)
