And at this point you are asking for evidence of evolution, which is one of the most robust and well supported theories in all of science. Evidence for evolution converges from many, many different scientific fields. There is nowhere near enough room for me to convey the evidence for evolution in a single topix post, so I recommend, despite knowing that you won't do it, that you search google for "evidence of evolution."
Here is a nice little summary of the evidence.

Don't try to poison the well. The argument was where did the instructions in DNA originate.

You said "where is the evidence dna evolved?" I'm starting to think you don't know what "evolve" means.


At this point, no one knows for sure how dna originated. You are asking me to tell you how life began. There are several different ideas. One of the most prominent is the "rna world" hypothesis, but it has some problems. No one knows for sure. So?

Check out the miller urey experiment. That's one piece of the puzzle. It shows, experimentally, that amino acids are easily synthesized in early earth conditions.

Still not answered. Are you unable to present an argument and must defer all thought to a link?

Coming from the guy who does not "present" anything but ignorance, that's rich. Do you think that god is to be taken as fact until science can definitively explain every single mystery? Provide evidence for your claim. Until magic is proven to exist in the first place, science doesn't have to prove anything. We may not be able to definitively explain abiogensis at this point (you know, like we couldn't explain lightning 10,000 years ago), but that doesn't mean we never will, and it certainly doesn't mean that goddidit. Until you provide proof of god, it is safe to assume that life started without him, regardless of *how* exactly it started.

No, I asked where the instructions in the DNA originate.

Bullshit.
Medical science has *caused* many, many deaths. Botched surgeries, malpractice, misdiagnoses, etc.
My mother-in-law was a prime example of how much medical science kills people.

This is what you said:

"Where is the evidence that DNA evolved? From what, where, when?

You are making baseless claims and accuse other of doing just the same...hmmmmm?"

But either way, you need to realize that you are asking me about abiogenisis, which as I said, is not something we have a definitive answer for. I pointed you towards the miller urey experiment, which showed that over 20 amino acids could be easily formed in the conditions present on early earth. I also told you about the "rna world" hypothesis, which posits that rna is the precursor to dna, and I provided a link because there is not enough space for me to lay out every theory that attempts to explain abiogenisis.

But you simply pretended like this didn't happen, and repeated your "provide evidence of your claim" line, again. How about you provide evidence of your claim.

Keep seeking with an open mind and willing heart, check your motive i would think..
Are you seeking "just for" the curiousity of his existence?, or are you truly wanting what God wants to give you?
Have you asked yourself if you found the evidence you seek, are you willing to serve God?
Why would one have to "keep" seeking? As I said originally, many people have sought out god with an open heart and in all sincerity. They heard and felt nothing in return. Why would god not fill their hearts right away? Why would they have to keep trying?

Would you do me a favor? Would you tell these morons that I have no more time for the game? I'm outta here; have better things to do than argue with people that claim that a subjective 'sense of self' is even remotely testable. And with ignoramuses that won't even address what I wrote directly and that act like they think they can explain how awareness came into being.

I owe ya; just name it, you got it :)

If you can't explain how awareness came into being then you can't explain consciousness. Oh, but tim and Aura can. They can..........KMA.

<quoted text>Imagine you know everything. Imagine you can do anything. Imagine that time does not exist for you - you are not bound to a single moment. Ok?
Now imagine you create a colony of little creatures. Imagine that you know everything that they will ever do, even if you don't explicitly make them do it. Imagine that you have the power to change the course of any event in their timeline. K?
Now, imagine you create one who you immediately know, by virtue of your omniscience, will go on to become evil. You know of all the lives he will destroy and all the bad things he will do. Imagine you could, by snapping your fingers, make all of the bad things he will ever do go away. k?
Now imagine that you don't. You see, in your infinite wisdom, untold suffering brought upon your creation by this creature. Even if you technically gave this creature "free will" (which technically can't exist in this universe since you know everything that will happen and can change it, but we will ignore that), you still know that this creature will use this "free will" to inflict suffering. k?
You have created evil. Even if you didn't "make" this creature evil intentionally, and even if he "chose" to become evil on his own - he did so under the watchful eye of you, a being who has the power to stop him effortlessly.
So yes, your god created evil. He set into motion a series of events that he knew, for a fact, would result in unimaginable levels of suffering in this universe, and he does not life a finger to stop it. That, to me, is worse than any sin of any evil man. Your god could snap his fingers and make sure that no child ever loses his parents, that no girl is ever raped, and that no kid is ever sold into slavery ever again. And he doesn't. That's even worse than your devil, because while he is evil, he doesn't have control over all of creation.
And, no, the absence of good/god is not evil. The absence of good is the absence of good. You don't automatically start butchering babies if you aren't a "good person."
Holy God

Holy God, we praise Thy name!
Lord of all, we bow before Thee!
All on earth Thy sceptre claim.
All in heaven above adore Thee.
Infinite Thy vast domain.
Everlasting is Thy reign.
Hark! the loud celestial hymn
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heavens with sweet accord;
Holy, holy, holy Lord! Amen.

Because when our time is up here, we both are gonna see that ''if'' turned into ''it surely was true''..

All the "if's" and maybe's will be proven positive..
