Adam wasn't a baby, so who cares? The only fools here are the people who think Genesis describes CPR because magic breath went into the nostrils of a dirt-man and turned it into a living person.
Gen 2:21
So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh.
Look at this amazing example of God injecting Adam with anesthetic chemicals to prepare him for surgery and the detailed description of wound suturing! Such incredible medical knowledge!
I'm not trying to get you to think outside the box but to just think.

Aside from all the negative advertising you are doing here for religion. Don’t forget that a large part of the hospital system here in the US and abroad is religious based. The Catholics and Methodist have some of the most advanced hospitals in the world. Saving thousands of lives every years.
Not to mentioned most of the religious hospitals are also research and teaching facilities. I don’t know the exact number of religious hospitals versus secular but I bet it’s over 50%.
No thanks! No WAG dancing for me!

Holy crap.

So many of these Topix atheist science experts think gravity, the nuclear forces, and EM come in buckets. They are used to do wondrous things that only man can do. Just pour a little here and a little there, and throw a few numbers in with them.

Totally oblivious to the fact they are made of the same damned stuff. Their wondrous selves are above that.

Oh, their wondrous selves were made from natural causes. What is natural? The existing scheme of things, Which was caused.

I wouldn't get in a hot tub with a creepy old George Burns look alike anyways even though he is attracted to me and wants to gulp my Johnson. But now that he confessed he uses it as his toilet I don't know anyone who would get in there with him. Would you?

Well, if a couple of hot babes where in there too and I wasn‘t married. I just might and they were laughing and giggling and having a good time.

Is it done nose only reject? Because that is what the bible says, nostrils only and Adam was not an infant.

This is typical apologetic nonsense, take something we have or do today and try to make it fit with something in the bible. Very clumsily may I ad.

If blowing air into ones nose bringing a lifeless being to life is not Pulmonary Resuscitation, then what is it called?
It's called the supernatural creation of a human being. Just like how Eve was made out of a rib.

Pulmonary resuscitation is a process done to a living person to KEEP them living since one of their functions has ceased working.

Genesis 2 describes a process done to non-living dust/dirt/clay to turn it into a living person.

It doesn't match and you trying to force it to just makes you look silly and desperate.

I can see where a certain growth got short circuited in your mental development.
What is a copper wire? A bunch of dead molecules, right?
Touch one laying on the table. Deader than a door nail. Stick one in the hot side of an outlet and touch it. Still deader than a door nail, right? Touch it and wet your finger and touch the screw in the middle of that outlet.
Not so dead after all, is it?
It still isn't alive. It is charged and connected to an electric potential, but that is a very different thing from being alive.

There is certainly a short circuit in understanding somewhere, but it isn't with blacklagoon.

Microwave ovens aren't strong enough to lift a car off the ground. Set to low, bypass the door lockout, stick your head in one, and come back and tell me magnets, as in magnetic force, does not affect chemical processes.
I will wait.
The main force affecting things here is the electric component of the microwaves, not the magnetic component. Try again.

High frequency EM.
BTW, the E and the M exist together. Can't really get one without the other.
Yes, you can. But *changing* electric fields produce magnetic fields and *changing* magnetic fields produce electric fields. Thanks Faraday.

I'm thinking bacteria or specifically the communication between bacteria , which in turn formed the ability to acquire memory.
Is the reason of life as we know it. Meaning bacteria could well be the reason of all life.
