Right, I don't believe you.

I will even ask nicely, could you fill in the details please?

Okay I read the papers the scientists actually wrote, and the article is a bit deceptive in saying so much water exists in the mantle. What it actually says is molecular Hydrogen and oxygen may exist in the rocks that make the mantle and crust, the key is may and the water is not water it is immiscible hydrogen and oxygen. with some mixing into water but most held in suspension and in mineral solids. The flaw here is the method he used to make this determination , is the same as what we determine what stars are made of.
The only problem with that is his sample had to come from holes drilled at the bottom of the ocean, and retrieved to be analyzed.
So you see there is a difference between what scientists consider as molecular water, and water like the liquid we know in the sea.
His hypothesis if correct the hydrogen and oxygen exist that could
become water.Or was water and is reduced by the pressures and turned into minerals. If you consider hydrogen in molten and solid minerals , and oxygen in the same conditions water, then the Earth's a canteen full of it.
If one believes that water lays in the crust and mantle as it does on land in great bodies of water, they have deceived themselves by a lack of understanding geology they should have learned in middle and high school science classes. Just saying.

Lets make it fair and on the level. I believe God created life and life has since evolved without interference. Your turn. What are your beliefs? To get you have to give.

That is because you always do the same crap. Giving a partial answer is not an answer no matter how many times that you have given it. In other words you are a lying creep who is afraid to state what you want to believe because in your heart of hearts you know that you are wrong.

I have asked many times and you never have admitted your beliefs. I have been clear on mine and will continue to be so. I see no need for the hand of a magical being to start life. The evidence is stronger every year that life started naturally.

I will answer this again. Your answer is incomplete.

I will still answer your question, I believe life started naturally and did not need the hand of god for it to form or for it to evolve.

Isn't circumstantial evidence also known as facts? You better get back to me on that one as well.
Yes. An existing 'fact' can be included among other pieces of unproven facts linked together when one is trying to prove a case based on circumstantial evidence because not enough actual facts exist. Like with the big bang theory. Like with the theory of dark matter etc.

And so we agree that life has evolved/changed over time. I believe God started life you believe life started itself <<<< neither to this date of how life came to be can be proven or dis-proven. Both rely solely upon what a person believes.

Circumstantial evidence can be extremely important in criminal cases. For example the fingerprint of a suspect at the scene of the crime is circumstantial evidence. Direct evidence is of the sort of video tape of the incident itself, or a witness testifying that he saw the crime take place and who did it. One piece of circumstantial evidence alone is not enough, but many pieces of circumstantial evidence can easily win a case. Blood on a shirt is circumstantial evidence. A DNA test that shows it was the victims blood is even more circumstantial evidence.
If you had the defendants fingerprints at the scene and the victims blood on the defendants shirt do you think that you would need much more circumstantial evidence for a murder conviction, if the defendant did not have a good alibi?
If you are referring "alibi to reason of why" it is circumstantial. If you were at Barbs Saturday and had dinner, left your finger print on a glass while helping her wash dishes. But while washing dishes she cut her finger so you grabbed her finger to put pressure to slow the bleeding and got some blood on your shirt. If she was found murdered the next day that may or may not convict you of murder. That depends on what the jury swallows from the PA(prosecuting attorney) and the DA(defending attorney).
You went home is your alibi and you had no reason to do it. Yet you look guilty as can be.

"I said the earth has the potential to globally flood itself."
We told you that is just not so. If you follow the science behind your link saying there could be vast amounts of water under and the mantle. You may as well say " The sun has vast amounts of molecular water in it.".
I did say the earth has the potential to globally flood itself. I never specified the when. I did list possibilities under theoretical situations. Please understand that difference.

Have you read any theories for the earth being covered in water after it's first long rain after the age of volcanism that let lose their gasses that became the first clouds? Scientists guess for millions of years the earth was covered in h20 where bacteria first took birth. As plate tectonics began to happen forcing what would become the first mountainous ranges on earth to appear above this water and form land while the evolution of sea life took place, do you know we have no present evidence of this global wide covering of water? No sediment, no fossil layer, no nothing. But scientists are firmly in the belief it happened as they theorize.

Except I have evidence that my belief has evidence that shows it is possible. Still, I have no major disagreements with you if you believe that life evolved once that single cell existed.

I can assure you that those are not RR's beliefs.

The point is that circumstantial evidence can be very very strong evidence. How often have you heard of murder cases that hinged upon fingerprints found on guns and ammo?

Disrespecting evidence simply because it is circumstantial is foolish.

Show me testable, proven, observed evidence of abiogenesis, life form non life spontaneously happening. I don't want guesses, thoughts, could be's or would be's. Show me real evidence.

Actually all the evidence of my assertion is real. There is zero chance of dead tissue coming back to life after tissue degeneration has taken place. But this window can be as little as 45 minutes or extended in very cool conditions. It has been found clinically dead can be revived , but the brain degenerates very quickly , if the victim cannot be revived in this window, degeneration makes it impossible.
But on the other side we know the chemicals and compounds can assemble into living organisms, life itself is testament of that.
The key to building life has been discovered, and even some of the process, but this knowledge isn't quite detailed enough to reproduce what happen. But this will be solved soon, and you will with your jaw blabbing denial and religious belief left in the utter stupidity, that you repeat mindlessly like the thrall of the imaginary god you worshiper you are.
Total lie! " we know that chemicals and compounds can assemble into living organisms?" life is testament to that! you are a nut! there's ZERO evidence for that! You are bathed in denial, and will tell any lie to defend your faith.

You have surpassed the idiot sucking bone for lies and stupidity,...so the key to building life has been discovered eh? What a fool! perhaps you should let the rest of the world in on your secret , you are the only one who knows it.

you worshiper you are?

in your frenzy to defend the faith you are losing coherence
