However, this is the statement made as a hypothesis.....
" If the emergence of life is, like other natural phenomena, highly probable given the right chemical and physical conditions then it seems likely that the early Earth hosted multiple origins of life, some of which produced chemical variations on life as we know it."
If all life that arises on earth, has similar genomic structure and can share dna, then common ancestry between ape and chimp is an assumption you choose to believe.
Sorry, I had to stop your idiocy here. The last claim is a nonsequitur and needs some evidence to support it. Sharing of DNA at a single cell level, which can still be observed today, is totally different from how DNA is passed down in more complex life.
The other assumption you coose to believe is that evolving systems would be selected, in a major sweep, that are transitioning.
Indeed chimp and human genomes are so different, that the differences are virtually unquantifiable.
It appears you need more faith to believe in TOE than I do to believe in creation.
Wrong, the differences between humans and chimps has been quantified. Do you want links? I am more than happy to provide them. I am sure that you have seen some of them before. Where do you think that we get the "98% similarity between humans and chimps" from?

replaytime continues to be an idiot and the Seahawks came back from a 21 to 0 deficit to win the game in O.T.. They have never come back from that much of a point differential ever in franchise history. It looks like this year the Seahawks are becoming the masters of the ugly victory.
Are you trying to steal away my lying, dependent, stalker? He is working so hard to curry favor with people on this thread and you make him look like a ranting lunatic, so fixated on winning, he doesn't even know he is losing.

LMFAO!! What a complete moron!
You think that just because they did not have the word "sphere" that the people at the time of the Bible could not tell the difference between a disc and a sphere.
Proper words are not needed to know the difference between shapes.
You have gone past Maroon and have entered the realm of "ignoranimus"!
Keep it up fool, you are excellent entertainment for me today.
Let me put it real simple for you, the easiest way I can. Did the ones that wrote the bible have the knowledge 2300yrs ago to know the earth was round? It is a yes or no question and this will answer all your other stupid questions. Again it is a yes or no question. So don't give us some drawn out drama answer as usual.

Sorry creepy, you until you tell me if your wife has stopped abusing you anally yet you have no right to demand a yes/no answer.

It should have been obvious to even you by that earlier response that demanding a yes/no answer is unreasonable.

So, are you going to answer my question yes/no or not?

Just what I thought. Give a drama BS answer coupled with rundowns as usual. What a COWARD!!! You need to go to your wife and get your balls back, if you ever had any.

Letís have people input on this one. I know ther will be some make stupid comments but I also know some will be honest. I actually don't expect much but one never knows.
1. How many of you believe they knew what a sphere was 2300yrs ago?
2. How many ways did they have, if any to tell that the earth was even round 2300yrs ago?
3. How many of you think back when the bible was written that they knew earth was even round?
4. How many of you think that if you look out at the horizon over land or water that the earth looks like it ends?
5. If you knew the word circle and you could spin around in a circle and see earthís horizon out everywhere you looked in that circular spin, would they think 2300yrs ago earth was a circle as well?
Bollocks. The ancients weren'y any more stupid than we are.

Anyone with a handy east-facing cliff, or even a tallish tree, could see that the Earth wasn't flat.

Seafaring people have known this for at least millenia.

Only an idiot or a "Sub" would use them thinking a flat earth as a bad thing. They did not know better. Sphere did not exist! Ball was a toy! Circle was a shape! Get it yet?
Do you think the Egyptians should have referred to the pyramids as a trigonal?
Probably not.

Pyramids have five sides.

I am not the coward.

I have been answering your idiotic questions all day and you will not answer one simple one of mine.

You keep forgetting replaytime, you are the one who is demanding answers. You have to pay for them sometimes by answering questions yourself.

It seems by your attitude that your answer to my question may be "no". Or worse yet it may be "Yes" and the reason you are so butt hurt right now is that you are going through withdrawal symptoms (Ouch!! NO pun intended but it sure worked out well!).

Of course this is just replatytime trying to change the argument, since he lost the original point, or never even understood what the original point was.

Of course we all know the Bible is not perfect. Yet there are certain fundamentalists who do think so. There are verses in the Bible that clearly show they believed in a Flat Earth back then. That is no real dig at the writers, but it is a dig at the people who are willing to swallow any of the Bible's nonsense.

It is fun to watch replaytime froth at the mouth and spin rather than to admit he was wrong.

No it appears you are another deluded funditard, who tries to hijack science, to say what you want it to. You also attempt to belittle and distort the truth to bend it ti fit your personal need for a creator. Science can't test for things not there , so your creation illusions are ..well illusions. You can wriggle and whine , holler scream and dance around till your head pops off, it wont fool the true science minded people in this forum.
After all you creationists are all the same..and use the same lies and tricks.

So up in a tree or on a cliff you can see out past the horizon? Interesting.

Maz, I would be interested in seeing what the differences between the human and chimpanzee genomes are and how the differences can't be quantified.

He always reminds me of one of those stereotypical wife beaters. They attack viciously, then they blame the victim, then they are just the sweetest guy. Every time he gets into it with someone, it seems to be the exact same pattern.
