What's terrible is you and many scientists DO believe in something with no proof whatsoever, and you and your ilk are so blinded by your ideology you can't even realize it.<quoted text>
Nope. Because abiogenesis is not a doctrine to believe in. Pity you cannot get your head around this. Its a hypothesis, or really a series of hypotheses, to test. Can you see the difference?
No faith, no belief. Just science and hard work.
Noted - Creationists just think scientists believe something different than they do. What they don't get is that we don't believe in "believing in", the way they do. About anything.
Skepticism - the refusal to accept any claim not backed by evidence.
Skepticism - the ability to live with doubt where there is no defining evidence for or against a claim. That's it.
Wakey wakey bohart. We are not even working from the same playbook as you.
" Intensified effort revealed that even the supposedly simple amoeba was a complex, self operating chemical factory . The notion that he was a simple blob , the discovery of which chemical composition would enable us instantly to set the life process in operation , turned out to be , at best , a monstrous caricature of the truth. With the failure of these many efforts science was left in the somewhat embarrassing position of having to postulate theories of living origins which it could not demonstrate. After having chided the theologian for his reliance on myth and miracle , science found itself in the unenviable position of having to create a mythology of it's own:

"Unstable organic compounds and chlorophyll corpuscles do not persist or come into existence in nature on their own account at the present day, and consequently it is necessary to postulate that conditions were once such that this did happen although and in spite of the fact that our knowledge of nature does not give us any warrant for making such a supposition...It is simple dogmatism, asserting that what you want to believe did in fact happen"
British biologist Woodger
Read that last line by Woodger again,....that's sums you and your ilk up quite nicely.
