Where in space? Can you point them out?
Of course you do know amino acids are not alive right?
No, i cannot, but they have been detected by those that could point them out to you.

i know they are not alive, but they most certainly could have been on the earth. if htey can form in space or exist in space from some other point of origin, theycertainly could have been resent on teh Earth from very early on, or even come togethr here.

thus, you just rain and rocks statement isn;'t nearly correct. there would have been organic molecules.

saying that because living beings in the universe have intelligence means the universe has intelligence is making stuff up.
inanimate objects do not have intelligence.
I did not say that inanimate objects have intelligence.

I said that science copies intelligent processes OF the Universe...

And the fact that they are more advanced in concept to be applied to technology for advancement, makes them obvious intelligent concepts.

So, the creation theory has what proof besides a book and a lot of human made artifacts. Its easy to fool the human animal. So far, both the theories are baseless nonsense. To many galaxies to count should get your gray matter thinking. Each galaxy has the potential for life.....more advanced then earths. Its a high probability.....beyond possible. Better odds than creation or evolution. Creation and evolution did play a part in the third theory........the earth is a floating petri dish, humans are the specimens.

Actually, like i said, if they are saying a foot in the arrowhead region, that will mean two or more up in the hills where we're at. they never get that right, but they have no measuring stations in the area. some of the mountains closer to the shore do, like Lutsen or Eagle mountain area, but not up where we are...

after so many times of the shore getting 6" and us getting over 18" my neighbor had to start bringing photos in to work with him so they would believe him...

No, no it doesn't. not in the sense that they were designed by an intelligence.

of course we would copy systems in the universe where we were formed! that's ;like being surprised that we are made up of the most common elements of the universe....duh...

"there would have been organic molecules"

There is no proof of that.
A mere guess of what might have been 4 billions years ago.
Rain and rocks that's all there was.
No atmosphere, no air, no oxygen.
Just rain and rocks.

why do you think you guess is correct.

most people who know what they are talking about say there was, in fact, an atmosphere. and if there are organic molecules in space and we know they can form from the "primoodial soup" experiments, it would seem you concept fo just rain and rocks is totally wqrong.

how do you get rain if there is no atmosphere? oops!!!

isn't rains just H2O? Ooops..what is the O? ooops!

nice try, though...
