Looking, looking, nope absolutely zero empirical evidence.Damn you tell a lot of lies. chemicals,matter, geologic history, the biosphere none of that even hints AT HOW DEAD INANIMATE MATTER CAME TO LIFE ON ITS OWN!
Of course it does! The *composition* of life and its connection to the chemicals of the early earth is a HUGE clue to how life arose from non-living materials. The geological history limits the time scale for the transition.

Do you have the idea that life was something *added* to matter? That is simply wrong. Life is a particular *organization* of matter. Every single atom and molecule in your body is 'dead matter'. But the way it is organized makes *you* alive.

Kinda designed that way, eh?

Makes it easier for those virtual particles, doesn't it?

You are assuming a random collection of matter eventually developed into a sentient creation.

Oh, if that's your question then here's the evidence:
There was no life, now there is. Non-living matter had to somehow form living organisms.
It's just the "how" that's currently an unknown. No, we won't accept your made up "god dun it" answer, because that's still not an answer to the actual question and it's an assumption.
Nooo!, noo! we won't accept your made up , god dun it,because we have our own answer the goo dun it!

I was speaking of the bible myth god naturally as that is your imaginary friend of choice. Stop dodging the question.

Your bible clearly shows how this god you have accepted as your imaginary friend demonstrates his morals and his meals are unacceptable to say the least.

I hope you can see the illogical nature of your argument.
Which is little more than a suppression of the truth.
The sin in you, controls you, so that you cannot even reason clearly and logically and see the absurdity of your argument.

A pretty sparkly logical fallacy is still a logical fallacy. Intent does not make truth. Thank you for admitting that you use circular argument logical fallacies.

Remember the movie "Caveman" with Ringo Starr? There was a truth buried in that. That truth is cavemen would have tapped out rock beats the same as today. Or played stringed instruments the same.

But scholars would lead you to believe what we have today is a linear progression of "learning". Thousands of years before man could develop the ability to tap out La Bamba.

A myth that has existed for two thousand years and has even shaped the world you live in, and how you think.

Now, what other mythical universes do you also live in? You are worth something? You are a constructive part, and not just an annoying boil on the butt, of universal man?

Topix atheist morality.

Oh, Bible God did all of these evil things. Killed people left and right, allowed diseases, etc, etc, etc. BAAAD God!!!

I wonder if they hold themselves to the same standard. They are killing parts of themselves, and others, just to maintain their existence. If cells have your DNA in them, then they are part of you. Do Topix atheists have any compunction about letting parts of themselves die so that they can live, maintaining their existence? Or taking a shit so they feel better?

You don't get to use the word "scholars" considering you don't have any respect for academics.
