So you are claiming abiogenesis is happening in everyone right now???
No. Abiogenesis is how the *first* life got started. The question is how the complexity of the chemical reactions initially developed. You were talking about whether non-living things 'create' living things. The answer to *that* question is a definite *yes*.

You realise that you have just solved the atheists biggest mystery, if you have indeed understood what abiogenesis is.
I suspect you don't, hence your claim here.
Abiogenesis is the development of the complexity necessary for life from the initial building block chemicals. We have a good over-view of that process but do not know the details.

But that is a different question than the one you proposed: do non-living chemicals 'create' life? The answer to *this* question is yes. The non-living atoms in your body combine to produce the *living* organism that is you. Now, the complexity is already there, so the question of how the complexity originated is still open. But that is a different question.

No, religious truths *claim* to be absolute. But they are not. In fact, they are mostly wrong of meaningless.
Science's truths are always undergoing modification.


Yes, science has the ability to modify its beliefs to repair its mistakes. Religions, however, simply claim that their new ways have always been done. Science is honest and religion is dishonest.

Duh....how could a god who doesn't exist possess morality? What passes as morality among amoral atheists is a thin veneer of shifting scruples pasted over some other unsightly material.
Sounds like the religious morality to me. Slavery? Well, it was OK in Old Testament times, but not now. Subjection of women? Birth control? The religious stance on these questions has generally been the immoral one.

Still waiting for you to demonstrate how your god is anything more than a delusion. This is a reasonable question so stop avoiding it. Your belief in god is retarding you.

You amuse me, because for more than 70 Years I don`t believe in no god at all. God is nonexisting so why should I be so crazy and believe in such a thing?

Ah, but which religion?

There are thousands to choose from, each with their own "absolute truths".

They can't all be right but they sure as hell can all be wrong.

Not forgetting the zero tolerance that religious people have for people of other beliefs.

Communism is vanished at all. Capitalism is on the brink of its existence. This does not mean humanity is in a nuclear age in an extreme danger of extinction yet. Religion is not have a survival as a myth. Maybe religion may have some life in the private region.

The only life of capitalism is profit (superprofit) which war is bringing. In the nuclear age this may be the end of mankind before capitalism has gone.
Ans.

Who says demise of Capitalism and Communism means that human race is due for extinction?

It shows that age of these isms are over that there is one course left for humans to turn back to their Creator and enjoy peace and tranquility on this earth.

Nuclear and biological and chemical weapons would not bring peace and tranquility on this earth.

Neither would all this advancement is science and technology…. They only help is meeting the need of physical body.

But the souls and spirits of mankind is hungry, they also want food and nourishment.

And the food and nourishment for soul and spirits is “Remembrance of their Creator”. If you feed and nourish them by “Junk food” like Music and dance and Alcohol and Drugs, they would remain hungry and sick.

And that is what we see in the world today in this so called “Nuclear age” or “Information based society”.

The man is getting cruel, selfish and dischanted with each passing day.

If you plan on taking over the world in a mere 25 years, you've got to do something about improving your public image and quick. Currently, atheisim is a dirty word in American society. Research in the American Sociological Review finds that among several groups listed, atheists are the group that Americans relate least to in terms of their vision of American society and are the group most likely to be mentioned as one that Americans would not want to have marry into their family.

Dr. Sam Harris is a founder of the New Atheism movement. He is quite aware of the stigma surrounding atheism and has even advocated that atheists no longer call themselves atheists. In fact, Dr. Harris has said concerning the label of atheist, "It's right next to child molester as a designation."
