Lame jokes? your position on lifes origins is far funnier than anyone could be, and your dodging of it is insulting.
And let's try something here, Boo boo.

Observation that life is made up of chemistry? Observable fact.

Observation that new life develops from naturally occurring chemical processes? Observable fact.

Observation of life? Observable fact.

Observation of evolution? Observable fact.

Observation of magical poofing of organisms by invisible Jewish wizards? SWEET F A.

Hypothesis - magical poofing of life due to the intervention of an interdimensional invisible Jewish wizard. Scientific observations to support this include... well, uh... SWEET F A. Currently undergoing scientific research by... absolutely positively NO-ONE on the entire frakking planet.

Hypothesis - Abiogenesis is the result of God making use of naturally occurring chemical processes from the abundance of chemicals present in the Earths early environment. Observations to support this include planet-wide chemistry as well as the earliest forms of organisms being bacterial/micriobial in nature, the reproduction of which gradually led to a great variety of lifeforms with no violations of nested hierarchy. However unfortunately there is no testable evidence of (a) God. Currently being researched by numerous scientific organizations across the world, except for the bit about God since it is not currently scientifically verifiable. The rest is though.

Now, note that these are two DISTINCTLY THEIST points of view regarding the origin of life on this planet.

Also note that only ONE of these positions does not necessarily require a denial of reality.

Care to take a guess which one that would be?

Seems like they can explain, and have evidence for all teh processes up to the very point life came from all the abundant elements that make up life.
pretty damn close.
creationists are still stuck at square one with trying to find a shredof evidence of any god, gods or goddesses...
In short:
precursors of life can form naturally.
amino-acids
RNA
lipid layers
simpler versions of metabolic chemical like ATP and ADP

Eating /swollowing each other.
Communicating bacteria see TED talk Bonnie Bassler.
Most likely place near volcanic hotpools on land.
Best candidate given amino acids and lipd layers would be Montmorrilion soil a.k.a. Carpentras soil.

I've read plenty of papers, including schematics and actual tests...and lots can be found on this forum.
It's f.i. no problem whatsoever anymore to make synthetic DNA, usually the debate would be whether that is a welcome development.

Guess what bo? Al religions have a line like this.
Religions have always had to fight against people who could see through the bullshit.
No it's just a great line by Milton to describe how the created has the nerve to tell the creator how to do the job.

Good. I'm glad you're insulted. I tend to do that to ignorant people who insist on parading their ignorance in the face of reality.
Create life through your chemical process, unless of course you just told the favorite puddle gooist lie. Yep you did.

So you say.

All available evidence clearly indicates otherwise.

Do you still think that your ignorance of science proves your deity?
