Same thing goes for evolution-- the theory does not address how life got started--*at**all*.<quoted text>
I understand what you're saying. I just can not see how something can be made of nothing.
Even if there were no energy or matter just before the beginning of time. How was the vacuum made to exist?
With every example, whether it's evolution or the Big Bang theory or even the christian views. I can't understand how anything can start from nothing.
The scientific theory of evolution is solely concerned with the observation that once life did get a toe-hold on earth? That life got more and more complex as time marched forward.
Something like 3 billion years of time, to be specific-- and most of that was the gradual development of single celled critters.
Multiple cellular life did not show up until fairly recently (timewise).
If there *was* a "higher power", why on earth did it waste so much time on bacteria' evolution?
