exactly...it is intuitional knowledge.

(and I might add... this is basically why all primitive cultures have a concept of a creator, in some form or another.)

Of course not....
Chemistry is true...
But every thing invented, that you use today, every product that you use...did not magically just come to be...or exist...
Someone, a chemist, arraingend the chemicals, heat ect ect...combinations, to get desired product...
Aluminum cans didn't just put themselves together through chance evolution...ok...
Chemical reactions occur without guidance, without the need for any "designer," all natural science is based on this. Chemists use this fact as well, aluminum is also metallurgy, not chemistry, it's refining the metals in the rock and then mixing them, like soup. No chemical reactions there, actually.

Clearly you have no idea of the present state of abiogenesis.
You make countless claims of what had to happen without giving any evidence that supports those claims.
As the great Hitch said, Claims made without any evidence can be dismissed without any evidence.
You need to try harder.
Nor is there any evidence of life coming out of inordinate matter...

Inordinate lifeless elements cannot ever, will not ever, produce life...

get over it...

It has no reason to...dust will remain dust for trillions of years, until a master, intellegent chemist entity, comes along and arranges the chemicals in a way that can produce life...

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
Okay-tag you're it then! Bad you lol.

Really? You have evidence of this assertion? Life had to come from non-life ultimately, and you deny both the naturalistic possibilities and the possibility of supernatural events. Which means life had to always exist.

DUGWAY PROVING GROUND, Utah — After a seven-year, 2.9 billion-mile round trip, NASA's Stardust space capsule floated down to a landing in the Utah desert early Sunday, bringing back interstellar dust and comet samples that scientists hope will yield clues to the origins of the solar system....

.....Stardust’s sample return is the latest mission designed to study comets up close....

Six months earlier, NASA sent a probe called Deep Impact into the path of an onrushing comet. The high-speed collision with Comet Tempel 1 set off a celestial fireworks display in space and exposed the comet’s primordial interior. Scientists have been analyzing the voluminous debris hurled from the comet’s belly and are trying to figure out the size of the crater caused by the impact....

Your fear of the 'Christian god' doesn't mean there isn't an intellegent creator beyond human comprehension...

Most resist the idea of a creator...simply because religion has attached judgment and condemnation, as traits of this creator or creators or spirits or superior beings...

"Many" rather than "most" would read truer, and so would "because indoctrination" rather than "religion") has attached.. etc...

Mostly...because.. a person can...for example, "religiously" brush their teeth, or "religiously" drink two cups of coffee each day, neither of which "ritual" will have perpetuated any sort of religious "indoctrination" upon them.
