Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Cool.
Got any idea how these disparate chemicals came together so they could do those neato thingies?
How would they all wind up in the same ooze to have their little orgy?
Some of those are complex chemical chemicals, so how did those manage to occupy the same space and time, also?
There's a lot of space.

And a lot of time.

Thats NOT what I heard. Oh, and I do believe from reading how hard you try to convince everyone you're a real bass-ass, that my 9 years old granddaughter can probably kick your ass. I certainly know that I would have no problem with a 90 lb weaklings. I seriously doubt if you could bench press a McDonald's quarter pounder, although its obvious you have pick up plenty in your day.

Here's a tip, try eating more salads and less pizza, do 1 or 2 pushups each morning until you work your way up to 10, might take a month or so, the join a gym and try some easy lifting start with 10 pounds and work your way up to 15. Welcome to Blacklagoon school.....no no, don't thank me, I do it for all the physically disadvantaged. P.S. Don't try so very hard to convince everyone you're a real bad ass, its a dead give way that your just a pathetic whimp trying to impress.

That's wrong, and not even science.
An organism reproducing does not tell us where the organism came from, i.e., its genesis. Evolution "alters" a thing, it doesn't "produce" it.
Nobody should ask you to explain something.
You really shouldn't try and comment on something you know nothing about.....really!!!! Not until you understand what classification mean, you know like REPTILES....MAMMALS........INS ECTS, that kind of thing. I know.......Try reading a science book!!!.....ready set......GO!!!

It is not considered a spontaneous event, based on a chemical evolution. Much the same as the elements themselves evolved.
So did the combinations of them evolve into compounds.
The compounds evolve into complex organic compounds.
Complex organic compounds evolved into amino acids and proteins.
These evolved into simple bacteria , bacteria evolved into single cell life, single celled life into multiple celled life.
All evidence leads to this conclusion.
Yes, yes, yes. I've heard that assumption before.

But without solid evidence, abiogenesis stays a theory.

Theories change, facts don't.
I can't answer if it did or did not have a intelligent helper, but there is no evidence it did. And it sure appears it did so in a natural process, for what reason I cannot say. You could call that god, but I call it natural process. But denying it happened weakens your argument and makes you look like a "dummy".
Imagine that.

I'd like to know how Mr Aura "knows" that elements became life all on their own.

'cuz you'd dazzle the abiogenesis community!

Matched only by imagination and wishful thinking.

Also, do not forget, as soon as something approaching life was created, there was something there already to kill it. The theories count on a very dynamic and energetic, and toxic to modern life environment.

One more thing.

Say scientists finally create life.

They were already beaten to the punch.

But kitty, evolution does not create life itself!! Evolution can't tell us how the first organism came into existence!! Evolution does not create anything from scratch!!
Like the Laws of gravity do not create gravity itself. Where did gravity come from?
This just doesn't make sense!!
Why is science so afraid to say; "we don't know"?
Science says "we don't know" all the time, like "We don't know why Clementine is so incredibly stupid as to say where did gravity come from." See, you have provided evidence that science says that all the time. Thanks for helping, now go read a science book,....or.....go put on some makeup!!!!

Buck er Joe is a bonafide musclehead, I think he is most likely everything he says when it comes to beating people up.
Not so much the scientist though. He just blew his career as a defensive lineman and could have been in NFL history and the hall of fame by now. He has a sad story really, but I hope he has a better rest of his life story.:)

Yes, we do not know much about quantum mechanics, it's so friggin' confusing and VERY strange, but u got some silly scientists thinking they do and it reminds me of religious nuts who think God came on earth to kill himself! It's either 1 extreme or the other!
But that's technology, and technology is and has been evil! All weapons are thanks to science and technology too. We just can't say that all science/technology has been used for good!
From reading this and other posts of yours, you should stay away fro anything that has to do with science. Its a topic completely foreign to you. Take a class in massage therapy, much more your style!!! LOL

Hey look....another stupid Theist who has NO IDEA what a THEORY means, stocking!!!!!

To answer you and RR in one post , his question being....

"I'd like to know how Mr Aura "knows" that elements became life all on their own."

I specifically stated no one can yet answer how exactly or why exactly. We can answer it did and all life's biosphere is here to prove that. We can see it's progression through the fossil record
and through DNA mapping showing evolution is a fact.
Denying this process weakens any argument for god.
You can draw whatever conclusions you want from this statement.
As to the exactly how or why this process ensued, I do not pretend to know. But see it as a natural process of the universe and matter reacting to the forces of nature.

Hey dickhead, learn the differences between the Law of Gravity and the Theory of Gravity.

.......if you can learn.
