Answer the question dumbass, I haven't claimed anything ..
Yes you have. You claimed life ALWAYS comes from life. Evidence indicates otherwise. Your own religion claims otherwise. Twice. Since remember that God did NOT come from another life-form either, being immortal and eternal and all that.

Again, your hypocrisy is noted.

its your own words I'm using! How can something that was alive then dead not be able to come back to life, yet something that was never alive can? These are your words! You are not ignorant ,no,...you are just taking comically stupid positions to defend your beliefs. Then when your stupidity is exposed you accuse others of ignorance! Pitiful
Scientific fact demonstrates that non-living compounds are converted into life. And this happens on an every-day basis all over the entire planet.

In a sense some dead things can come back to life. For instance the components that make up your body may be reincarnated into a worm after you die.

If you wish to avoid that (and avoid living again) I would suggest cremation.(shrug)

Fog, which is more than air can be seen, Pollution can sometimes be seen, Movement of air can distort the perception of distance. Movement, pollution and fog are not air.
And ionising radiation? The effects of radiation can be seen but the radiation itself cannot be seen. Itís wavelength is far too high for the human eye to register. I believe we have had a similar discussion before over whether light can be seen and I provided copious evidence and you provided none, then you shut up about it fro some reason.
Is this the circle of life that is christianity? Wow, you really are a numbskull arenít you?
I did not ask you to prove it. I know that air and ionizing radiation can be seen, which is why I said air and ionizing radiation can be seen....

I couldn't begin to answer, it's a question that thinking people have wondered about for ages. I suppose to have the answer would be to know the mind of God, and in this life man isn't capable of it.Perhaps the book of Job is as close as we'll get here on earth to an answer. Good luck.
Oh man, gotta love the irony!

But Bo, you claim to know the mind of God all the time. You claim that God never did abiogenesis.

Stop telling God what to do.

Of course the problem with this is that creatards are misunderstanding what this finding tells us. It in no way threatens the theory of evolution. There may be fewer species of ancestors than we thought we had, but that is a big jump to take out of a few fossils found at one site.

Of course if you are a creationist grasping at straws is as close as they ever come to a victory.

You're right I don't. What's a non-snake serpent?
At least I was correct about it not being a snake.
My ex-wife is a serpent.

One of the meanings of "serpent" is a sly or treacherous person.

Not all serpents are snakes, but all snakes are serpents.

The very fact that plants and minnows HAVE been here for billions of years attests to that!

Yeah but that exactly what evolution says is going to happen, but the trend is toward a change in the entire population. We still see this variety in humans of today, some look remarkably Cro-Magnon while others look almost apish, and others more modern looking. There is no clear defining lines drawn and every specimen is a transitional creature.

That's just the way science goes. It proves itself wrong in what seems a daily basis.

There are so many 'science used to know' examples, it's hilarious.

Like science used to 'know' insects are made from rotting meat. And they taught that as 'fact'.

Nowadays, science tells us that humans are 200,000 years old. Then they find a 2 million year old human fossil.

What science 'knows' is unreliable.

It's a given that creationists are gonna jump all over this one and pretend it's something that it isn't. The specifics of 1.8 million years of evolution for one particular lineage is unclear while the other 3.4 billion years of evolution remains completely and utterly and totally unaffected by this discovery. Of course none of this helps Goddidit with magic in any way whatsoever, especially for Young-Earthers who predicted that none of this should even exist anyway since they think the universe wasn't even here then.

Unknown. It's only called a serpent.

And ignorant people translate that to snake.
