What is that we believe is LUCA/MRCA?
Sounds like gobbledegook.

Kong gave as a reply apples and oranges.

How do you define your most recent common ancestor?(given the entire alien seeding running as a main theme trough your life.)

LUCA would be found in Carpentras-soil or those of similar constitution to form a fatty cell-wall.
When? Take a huge ballparknumber, but really huge since it involves all life.

So if your question is about time between those events...

As I have said, go find one and photograph it. Imaginary concepts are not illogical but they are imaginary. The human imagination is a marvellous thing, just think, a whole god can fit in yours.
Honey, from my office to the toilet there is a set route, defined by doors and stairs. There is NO LINE for me to walk along
In the same way longitude and latitude are human concepts (ideas) based on time, the geography of the world and positioning of the sun/stars at specific times of the day.
The use of degrees is arbitrary, why not radians?
Imaginary, I realise that imagination is a concept that godbots consider reality but unfortunately imagination is not reality, it is imaginary.
All shit. If they are not real, science is not real, simple.

No of course not so once again you supposition is irrelevant
Your opinion and nothing more , you have no evidence and no hint of evidence that you god did anything, what you have is belief and belief does not pay the bills
A simple answer. This is beyond your level of understanding. Science is limited here. God is the creator of the universe.

Bingo, Charles.
The lat. and long. lines are human constructs, just as the time zone boundaries are.(There is only one date line, BTW) Humans have invented many invisible conventions to describe the world. What is soon to an hour, what is far to a cubit? A gospel or a poem means nothing to a rock, a scripture or a song means nothing to a tree - they are human ideas tailored by humans for human consumption and interpretation, nothing more. What part of "gods" do you not understand?
From your premise, the same with science.

Bingo, the same with science. What part do you not understand? With these lines we can locate distances and local time of real places.

Here's what science has taught me. We're one of the younger solar systems existing. And of all the solar systems we have searched we're the only planet that exists with the type of life that exists on it that we know of. That's what science has stated and proved over and over as they unsuccessfully try and prove life like ours might exist elsewhere. And the farther our telescopes etc allow us to see into the dark blackness of space, the more we prove we are the only planet that exists with life as it exists.
Actually using the mechanical evolution of the human mind within the last century as a base, if life had evolved elsewhere with life like ours since it's the example of what non life has supposedly became, I would think there would have been dozens of other solar systems containing life like ours with a sun aiding life. But they don't exist.
So my point stands.
Let's break that down a bit.

Man has not discovered signs of life on another planet. Check.
Does this mean that life on other planets do not exist. No.
Now let's consider the range which Man has the ability to observe in regard to the Universe.
Say Earth was a single grain of sand on a vast beach. Now let's say you dropped a dime on that beach, over the grain representing Earth. THAT is how much we can observe, and very limited observation at that. With this in mind, can you honestly believe that based solely on our observations, there is no other life forms in the Universe? Are you that simple minded?

If evolution exists today, it has always existed. It does exist today and can be proven beyond any doubt.

An egg, that is so small it can not be detected with the human eye, is joined with a sperm that is so small it, too, can not be detected with the human eye.

It begins to EVOLVE into a mass of cells that is doubling and growing larger. The first four weeks it has no signs of life other than doubling in size.

In five weeks that mass has EVOLVED into an embryo with a heartbeat.

Over the next few weeks it EVOLVES into a recognizable shape and begins to sprout fingers and toes.

In approximately 40 weeks a thing that could not be detected without a powerful microscope EVOLVES into a human baby.

EVOLUTION. Gotta love it.

Oh, no god was involved in that evolution. Just science.

Nope, you are wrong again.
Can you see air? Can you breathe air? Is air invisible, is it imaginary?
Can you see ionising radiation? Does it damage DNA and cells? Is ionising radiation invisible? Is it imaginary? Perhaps you should tell the wartime inhabitants of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that they all imagined it
Wrong, you do not know, you believe that your god exists, there is a profound difference and what is amusing is that if your compared your god to anyone else’s god, you would find they are difference – why? because they are figments of your personal imagination which is tempered by your personal experience
Been there, done that and shown your comparison between a date line and a god to be idiotic
Air and ionizing radiation can be seen...

Looks to me like that apple and orange are from the same tree.

The last universal ancestor (LUA), also called the last universal common ancestor (LUCA), or the cenancestor, is the most recent organism from which all organisms now living on Earth descend. Thus it is the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of all current life on Earth. The LUA is estimated to have lived some 3.5 to 3.8 billion years ago (sometime in the Paleoarchean era).

But I don't take your claims seriously. Since you aren't interested in being serious you should have no problem with that and be happy in your belief in talking donkeys and lizards.
