Even when you aren't attacking science, you still make the fallacious equivocation of machine to biology. There is no comparison, the two are vastly different. You should stop before you make more a fool of yourself on this matter.
You are the fool for equivalating collections of atomic particles called biological molecules as something different than collections of metal molecules making a lever.

I thought you believed in abiogenetic evolution?

The body is classified as a machine. Look it up. You think those parts work by magic? Appears so.

I believe that all modern living things evolved from a common ancestral population of living things, using natural processes that we can still observe operating around us today.

So are you asking about evolution? Abiogenesis (the origin of life)? The origin of planet Earth? The origin of the Solar System? The origin of the Universe?

Which?

They have actually deceived themselves into believing a Lie. They believe a Lie.

Science disproves that...yet they cling to it. Some religion eh? How can you not crack up laughing.
well, i believe all that but i can't understand how it could just happen on it's own.

Marilyn Monroe was a goddess!! my role model, lol!

What is delusional (and often dangerous) is believing that a supernatural, invisible skydaddy magically "poofed" everything into existence in a period of 6 days and then required sacrificing himself to himself in order to prevent himself from committing further genocide against his creations.

Science disproves that

So if it didn't happen on its own, how did it happen?

If you say that a "god" did it, then how did a "god" come into existence on its own?

I understand what your saying, some things written in religious books don't make sense!!

I don't agree with the above either, but i also don't agree with atheists when they say the world just created itself.

As an Atheist you believe that in the beginning there was some type of matter. Matter or substance that wasn’t created but always existed. The cosmos developed from this pre-existent matter. This matter gathered together and then went forth with the big ban sort of. A self creation or more simply put.

But you can’t accept that a God, has always existed. He has no beginning or no end. Yet you accept matter has always pre-existed??? Basically all of us have some type of faith about the beginning of the cosmos.

Perhaps one day Physicist will discover with positive proof the existence of a all mighty God.
