Isn't it quaint how believers just attribute everything to an invisible sky wizard? Such simpletons.

Lets see if I have this straight.
God could not have created the universe because you have proof that nothing exploded to create everything.
God could not have created life because you have proof the life just started on its own.
God could not have created different kinds of animals because you have proof that all plant and animal life came from one self generated life speck.
Simple minded?
No, that is not what I said at all.

Invoking God as the creator of the universe means you no longer have to figure out what, exactly happened at the beginning of the universe: you have a pat answer that actually answers nothing.

Invoking God as the creator of life means you no longer have to figure out exactly how life got started. You no longer have to understand the physics, chemistry and biology of life, but can use a pat answer that actually answers nothing.

Invoking God for the diversity of life means you no longer have to figure out exactly how life has diversified over time. You have a pat answer that actually answers nothing.

To see if you *really* have an answer to a question, see if the same answer would just as easily provide an 'answer' to the opposite question. If it equally well would explain the diversity of life as its lack of diversity, with no change in the explanation, then you have no explanation at all.
So, yes, simple-minded intellectual laziness. Instead of having to think deeply, you declare *poof* God did it and no longer have to think.

The evidence I am speaking off is taught from grade school on up to any college. Now for you home schooled or religosu school taught they left out all those facts..So sorry you did not get educated in anything but christian hate and bigotry.

Not a good theory.
China knows where a lot of stuff is made yet they take it a part and try and learn from it and try to reproduce it.

Just because God made stuff doesn't mean we can't try and learn about it.

If life was self generating why does all life have DNA? one would think with all the different plant and animal life on the planet at least one other type of genetic coding would have arose, Using mutation and randomness. Rather odd that all life uses the same DNA coding.
So either there was one creator or one spontaneous life form, and that no other life was ever self generated again in 4 billion years. One speck arose shortly after the earth formed and then nothing else for billions of years. Rather odd!

Facts are facts I agree. Homeschoolers score higher on intelligence tests than public school students. Other facts I enjoy- your nothing is illogical. Obama is a proven liar. Climate change is cyclical. Religious give more to charity than nonreligious. Conservatives more than liberals.

Go find the Obama loving progressive gun control cop killer. Your nothing is noted.

Except that it doesn't. There *are* variants of the DNA to amino acid 'code'. For example, the mitochondria in your cells use a different code. There are also variants in archaebacteria. We have viruses with no DNA, only RNA.

Your own argument shows how you are wrong.

As you said: not a good theory.

I stand correct. DNA and RNA is in all life.

"All living organisms store genetic information using the same molecules — DNA and RNA. Written in the genetic code of these molecules is compelling evidence of the shared ancestry of all living things. Evolution of higher life forms requires the development of new genes to support different body plans and types of nutrition. Even so, complex organisms retain many genes that govern core metabolic functions carried over from their primitive past."

Again I ask if spontaneous life (or what ever you want to call it) started shortly after the earth was formed. Why is it that one speck of life is the mother of all life? Why in the next 4 billion years didn't a different type of life emerge? Something that didn't use DNA and/or RNA?

One creator/designer?

Do you fundie con dumbs get points for mentioning Obama's name in every topic? And the more off topic the mention of his name is, the more points you get?
