All that does is push the question back, if life on earth came from another planet, where did that life come from and so on and so on, untill you get right back to the orifinal lifeform, where did tgat cone from, so the panspermia theory is a meaningless idea, it just pushes the question of how life came about, further back
I thought there is an answer to that. The Big Bang.

The process of giving birth is WHAT?!

It's part creation and part evolution. It certainly isn't something that a couple of people decided to because they had a box full of spare parts and a free weekend ahead of them. Granted, they might accomplish the same with a weekend and a couple of bottles of wine, but they'd be a bit arrogant to take full credit for the design part.

....come to think of it, they probably do think that after too much wine. Charles, who have you been spying on NOW?

Sure. First:

And as for the development of races it's long been known as evolutionary adaptation to local environments. Either that or humans were magically poofed white people in the garden of Eden and that all the other races that sprang from them were inferior due to TEH FALL.(shrug)
Again all it says is that the blood types could have come from a single ancestor. That's all the theory of evolution states.

How do you explain Japanese and Irish people who live in the same latitude and received the same amount of sunlight and yet Japanese have dark hair and Irish people have light colored hair?

That's right except the funds also come from NASA and US Air Force Space
Yeah, I did see that.

A case could be made for *indirectly* receiving money through tax payers.

But this begs the question: Why would NASA and the US Air Force (among others) provide funding to SETI without those organizations holding the possibilty of a return?

A modest monetary offering by these donors could result in mighty interesting data. You might say it's a long shot (as would I), but we don't know what kind of funding they're offering.

The Big Bang is a hypothesis about the origine of the Universe.....cosmological, not the beginning of life itself, which is biological.

Spying what?
Creation in/ on this aspect, constitute about 70%.
Ruling out creation from science according to Makesure 100, is a freakshow.

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....
Exactly. It was a great surprise to most scientists after they thought they
had a handle on telling which parts of the DNA actually coded for proteins
and which didn't. It was hard to believe, but it was looking like most of
it did nothing. So some just decided to call it junk DNA, and then tried to
rationalize how that could possibly be explained. So naturally there has
been a lot of speculation about it.

I don't think it was so much the idea that there could be some parts that
were left behind by evolution as other parts of the genome changed, but what
was shocking was the possibility that maybe as much as 90% of the DNA for
some species could be non-coding.

Now it seems that parts of the previously inexplicable segments operate in a
kind of different way, and so it remains to be seen how much is really
essential. I believe most scientists in the field were expecting some sort
of explanation eventually, and were suspending judgement. Others preferred
to run with what what they saw, to see if they could make a theory that fit
that evidence. It's typical of the way science progresses, and no reason to
worry about who to criticise for leaping to conclusions. Some times those
who leap first are the pioneers, and sometimes they just arrive at the dead
end sooner, while someone else discovers the path that leads forward.
There is no cause to disparage the excitement for the pursuit of knowledge
in that way, or to take all the mistakes to blame science as a whole,
without crediting it for the progress that is eventually made.

Scientists are human, and probably a few percent never accept newer
theories. Then what happens is that ignorant people with political or
manipulative agendas try to inject politics or religious views into the
fray, pick and choose the from the results or personalities. They then make
a lot of irrational noise about it, to harness the non-scientists and the
gullible into some project they have in mind. I love fairy tales and
science fiction myself, but I keep them separate in my head, so that I know
what to depend on when reality smacks me in the face.

This and many others will tell us that the world itself is a miracle.
Yes, it is all a miracle by our God and Creator. Thank you my friend , Merry Christmas to you and yours.

We are made of STARS. All elements (except hydrogen and helium) are formed in the stars. We are literally star dust. But I think life itself has to be 'programmed' by something out there.

And that was probably true-A big bang of it.
Why reading comprehension and English are pretty crucial subjects as well---for indepenedent thinkers-not stuck inside narrow square boxes of limited and/or closed minded thought anyway.
Ever see red algea growth in water?
Some of it can look blood red. And underwater gas pockets can really do a number on water color too!
Interesting smattering of quotes and facts, but it does not answer the question.

I agree. Same with my old, pos car, my television, my yard, my dog, and the planet itself. No argument there.

That does have a possibility. All you need to be able to teach that belief of yours in public school classrooms is evidence of this 'programming', and evidence of the 'Programmer'.

Until then, it does not qualify as science, and thus has no place in public school classrooms.

Is there any physical evidence left over from those miracles?
