This and many others will tell us that the world itself is a miracle.
And science is a miracle too. Time for a bit of faith.

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.
Not following here. Straa is saying that evolution, whether or not including possible panspermia, is worthy of acceptance. The Big Bang only serves as a possible limit on how long it could have gone on. I note that apparently life on earth has gone on for maybe 4 billion years, and that's about a third of the time since the big bang. Three times that length of time is not going to really make the case for abiogensis being that much more probable. Plus there is time to communicate life between distant planets or life sustaining places. More likely abiogenesis occurred in many places as soon as conditions were right. Might even have occurred here several times.

I wonder what language they used: LISP, FORTRAN or COBOL, or maybe just endless layers of macro assembler.

Because the Jews never took it seriously, nor did their God.

Well, as I understand it, the creation part is supposed to take place at conception. I guess then that birth is a stage in evolution if the baby survives to pass on it's genes. Otherwise I don't get it.
The issue is that creation can never be ruled out in science or any thing.

You're right. It's only cosmic justice, since we evos are compelled by our creed to make a monkey out our of ourselves....

No it doesn’t. Have you actually looked at any DNA code? What intelligence other than a completely demented one would write billions of apparently” random code groups Here is a small (very small) mRNA strand code for Ribonuclonoc acid – AHGACGGAGCYYCGFAGUUAG

And you are saying that is intelligent? Right, no wonder that you consider copyright infringement such a good look for your avatar?

There is one creationist theory that predicted the cure for ALL cancer a few years ago and it claimed that our own immune system could do it. Does anybody remember SCPID?

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?
Simple. They're not at the same latitude. But then I don't recall evolution claiming everything at the same latitude should have all the same traits.

I do recall successfully predicting your flawed method of argumentation though.

Big Bang Theory - The Only Plausible Theory?
Is the standard Big Bang theory the only model consistent with these evidences? No, it's just the most popular one.
...
...the renowned British astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle, who is accredited with first coining the term "the Big Bang" during a BBC radio broadcast in 1950.:-)
I was a big fan of Hoyle as a child. I must still have a well worn paperback of the Frontiers of Astronomy somewhere. I pained me for years to see the Big ! theory overwhelm it. I am still waiting for some form of steady state theory to rise like the Phoenix, over the momentary interruption implied by it. I'll suspend my judgement no matter how long it takes...:-)

Then you have a problem. Who programmed the programmer?

Aside from the complete lack of evidence that is.

God is one. Whatever versions of religions we have, there is only one God, while others are sub gods or deities.

The point is the evidence is out their is you are looking for the truth.
So that means if the Bible is true than we are all inbred descendants of Adam & Eva but didn't every human other than Noah & his family die in the flood, so that means we are all inbred descendants of Noah So how did over 6 billion different colored, different looking, different speaking people come to populate the planet in such a sort time. lolol O that's right god can do anything.
