What a moron you are masquarading your religion as science,... there was no life , then there was life, and shazzam! like Gomer Pyle abiogenesis must have worked.Again you have ZERO EVIDENCE OF ABIOGENESIS WORKING,ZERO!Why not go for the alien puddle gooists theory that life came from outer space, it hasn't failed in a lab and only requires your immense faith to work.You are about as scientific as a witch doctor with that statement, you are a puddle goo shaman , voodoo priest,and a poser

Classification of living things is not determined by "function". It's determined primarily by physical structure as determined by genome.

You didn't answer my question:*Why* should current science be able to stop death?
<quoted text>
How does the fact that current science cannot stop death tell us that there is a god?
In many ways!
All the limitations of science proves the existence of a God...

Where?
As has been addressed to you, Science only addresses Nature, IF life has a supernatural origin, science will never address it!
You might also examine a bit of history. How many things have people made claims to have had a supernatural origin? Millions, right? Probably millions upon millions. Rain, disease, weather, sunrise and set, clouds, wine, beer,... the list is pretty endless.
New question? How many things have been proven to have had a supernatual origin?
If you are honest, the answer is that to date: Nothing. Oh we don't know the origin of everything yet, but so far nothing has been proven to be of supernatual origin.
I know that would make more people think ... but no you!
Please define "supernatural".

How does the non-existence of "monkey professors" provide evidence for the existence of a god?(There isn't anything in the process of evolution that requires all species to evolve in the exact same way.)

Apes or great apes can never be a creator like humans, why, because they are not created in the likeness of God
How does the fact that other great apes have different capabilities than humans tell us that the difference is due to a "god" instead of simply being the result of two different evolutionary paths?

Possibly.
But if it did, it used evolution. Or God is a liar.

Now you are just plain lying. The evidence supporting Abiogenesis is surprisingly simple, I am not surprised you fail to understand it. Here it is, in brief form:
In the past there is evidnece that there was no life on Earth. At a point evidence of life is present. So no life -- then life. There, evidence for Abiogenesis!
Now, the real Abiogenesis question is HOW did it happen, not if it happened. We are still working on that question. Of course, the answer to that question doesn't have any impact on evolutionary theory. Whether God, Aliens, or chemistry did it, doesn't really matter for evolution.
You cannot make that assumption. You have no evidence that life wasn't transplanted here from somewhere else.

HTS, you need to ask yourself how digitalis works. It kills people by slowing down the heart. The medicine made from it is a controlled dose that slows down a heart that is beating too fast. The plant just made "poison". We figured out a positive use for that "poison".
Typical arrogant logic of an atheist simpleton.

Arrogant, when dealing with simple minded deniers who have no clue about science, perhaps. A simpleton? Definitely not, that would be you. You are the one who posted the idiotic claim about digitalis, not me.

So still working on that evidence for creation? I have a computer available for a while again and can still try to help you.

Your lack of scientific study is astounding still.
First, we can artificially create living cells from the chemicals, guided of course but it is possible.
Next, we have discovered proto-cells will appear spontaneously, we just haven't discovered the mechanism for which these proto-cells may gained the extra traits ... yet ...
The point of the matter is that no one really "knows." But scientists admit this openly and very often, religious people do not. You pretend to know, you lie and state you know how things more complex than you seem to comprehend happen in spite of having no evidence to support this. Science has evidence, yet still says "it's the most probable explanation," religion has no evidence yet states "this is how it happened and we know it."
No ,Oh no, Beelzebub has summoned forth the lying Succubus from his decaying bowels in Hell to defend the believers of nothingness. Back she-whore, back Babylonian slut, return to the foul pit, drag back your belief the universe came from nothing,life from nothing, all is nothing. Let your deluded minions fend for themselves without your horrid lies and promises of answers.Beelzebub,..heed thy master,.. re-chain thy winged she bitch that she may despoil the land of thinking men no more.Let her re-sink her fangs into the asses of the faith driven brain dead evolutionists and pump the poison of galactic idiocy, that they may continue to drool out the putridly unbelieveable lie,...that life came from a puddle of goo..

But apparently scientific classification is not.
Charles Idemi wrote:

According to biologists in general, actually.
Charles Idemi wrote:

Because each species of ape has a unique genome. This means different structures and therefore, different capabilities, which results in different behaviors.
