I know this has been pointed out to you a million times, but ...
Abiogenesis and evolution are not connected nor dependent on each other in any way.
You have an abiogenesis myth, we have a workable abiogenesis hypothesis. The difference is that your myth offers nothing useful to humanity while out hypothesis may one day cure cancer.
Evolution happens, get over it already, and it's not very magical, just extremely fascinating.
"Evolution happens, get over it already, and it's not very magical, just extremely fascinating."

You are so right. I think it's kind of sad that most of these people we debate here are going to their grave still believing the myths and that they will be resurrected in some kind of heaven.

Nope. RNA, the first of the self replicating molecules from what we know, will mutate on it's own, and requires no cells. The replicator molecule even mutates, that's how DNA likely came about.
However, we are certain RNA can exist without a cell, can replicate without a cell, and mutates without intervention.
Not true for humans and other mammals.

You have a very flawed understanding of scientific language. Asexuality is the label used to describe behavior, like homosexuality or heterosexuality, and it is completely possible in all species, even humans. In humans it manifests as a lack of sexual drive, lack of sexual desire, and lack of sexual attraction. Asexual humans are generally attracted to personality, intellect, and other mental traits but rarely even date or pair up, often just having friends and groups of "buddies" with no sexual activity.
While many species are incapable of reproducing asexually, this does not mean they cannot be asexual. Asexual is likely a combination of genes resulting in improved mental traits, the sexual desires are absent as a result. The drive to reproduce sexually is controlled by the genes, and therefore, any change to these can result in variants, which we see in many species. In primates we see what looks like the "tribe elder," a primate who is not competing for attention of the others and is also usually watching over all the youth from the side instead of any specific offspring.
Sexuality and gender is not dichotomous, and anyone who believes so is naive. The rarity of asexuality in humans is likely why our population has been able to grow so well, it is the primary reason why the phenomena has not been thoroughly researched as determining if another mating animal is asexual is virtually impossible. The misdiagnosis of asexual humans in the past has lead to many lives ruined and a stereotyping of the phenomena by the psychiatric community, one of the many reason psychiatry itself is losing all credibility. It is not a mental difference that makes people asexual, it is a physical difference in the body and how the cells respond to hormones and pheromones.
Research is a wonderful thing, you should try it sometime instead of just assuming everything is what you want it to be.
Wrong!
Homosexuals( gay and lesbians) can never reproduce, never!

Which doesn't change the fact that there are still numerous species that reproduce asexually.

"More unique", which means *what*?*Every* species is unique. Again, that's what makes something a species.
Certainly not humans...
You can never equate humans with others, never!

That is because you are ignorant and refuse to look at the latest research. I even posted a link that would have educated you. If you are not willing to learn all I can do is to point out what is going on to you. The rest is up to you.
