Why can't we settle this matter in a non-atheistic, non-religious way?
Some sort of "creative" energy started this thing, and evolution continued it.

one would need some shred of proof for this 'creative energy' for that discussion to continue...

Unless you can show me how something can emerge from absolute nothing, I'll go with my theory.
And please, if you are going to cite abiogenesis theory to me, don't bother.

And if you're looking for proof of any theory of how life began, bring a lunch with you.

who says something came from nothing? did you invent your own personal theory of the creation of the universe that says this?

You must be arguing that existence had no beginning, so it was always there. If that is not your theory, then existence had a beginning, or as I like to put it, existence from non-existence, or something from nothing.

We can know of nothing outside of our universe, can we?

You're getting ahead of yourself.

"Steam-powered wheeled vehicles, precursors to later automobiles"

Sure there were many prototypes, but no viable autos that went into production before 1901, sure you could buy a custom before then.
But you would have to have been rich and are buying something that
is not economically viable. After the car was a viable option the tank followed within a decade. Which was my claim, that if cars were around in 1806 the tank would have been used in the civil war.
But cars were not available in 1806, a few prototypes were.

But like with airplanes , as soon as a viable airplane was built, it went into service as a weapon. As soon as the car was viable, it went into service as a weapon.

You are an ape.

Your tail is merely a stub of bones that don't even protrude outside the skin. Your dentition includes not only vestigial canines, but incisors, cuspids, bicuspids, and distinctive molars that come to five points interrupted by a "Y" shaped crevasse. This in addition to all of your other traits, like the dramatically increased range of motion in your shoulder, as well as a profound increase in cranial capacity and disposition toward a bipedal gait, indicates that you are not merely a vertebrate cranial chordate and a tetrapoidal placental mammalian primate, but you are more specifically an ape, and so was your mother before you.

Especially how 'God' did this. He came from absolutely 'nothing', he made everything from absolutely nothing. Sounds like a slew of laws were broken.
And please, if you are going to cite abiogenesis theory to me, don't bother.

I am getting ahead of my self?? Really?? I posted "It was 1769, with the creation of steam engine automobiles capable of human transport. In 1806, the first cars powered by an internal combustion engine running on fuel gas appeared and since then just got more improved upon."

So what the hell are you talking about. Those are straight out of Wiki.
