All of those elements came from nuclear reactions in the cores of stars.
So this life stuff came from the core of a star and landed on earth in a mud puddle and then lighting struck and created life?

I don't know what this means or what it has to do with your nothing. You skipped my questions by the way. That damn atheist coward gene is shining through.

Wait, so you think atheism is a genetic trait ... yet you deny evolution. Classic troll.

Lightning, radiation, heat. lots of energy being added to this mixing of molecules and chemicals.

then again, life may have first come to be someplace else under circumstnaces we wouldn't have had on Earth or wouldn't even know of yet.

there are many types of life that we know of that can handle the rigors of extended apace travel.

panspermia, it's just a fun word!

So why then is there no life swimming around in space?

I was going off of what rose believes in on how life started. Just trying to grasp how that could be any stronger of an argument then a creator.

Who says there isn't? Of course even if there wasn't, it doesn't discount panspermia. You should actually ... um ... study things before trying to address them. Panspermia is one of those very feasible notions, one of the promising abiogenesis hypothesis that may just pan out over the terrestrial one. Only when they are actually done testing the information will we know which holds water the best, if either do, or maybe both.

Simple, adding in the creator you still need the "puddle, elements and energy," all you do is add a bunch of new questions of "where did the creator come from?" or "what created the creator?" as well as "which of the creators is more likely possible?" and finally "why did all the religions get the wrong creator?"

Because there is not one teensy eensy shred of evidence of any creator.

there is tons of evidence that all the building blocks of life are readily abundant in the universe and life seems to thrive in even the most hostile of environments we have physically looked at.

ANY argument is stronger than your ugly and terrorist creator, doofus!

Heck, the Invisible Pink Unicorn is a superior argument than the ugly creator YOU believe in!

And certainly, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is superior in >>every<< way to the ugly terrorist god YOU worship.

Face it: you worship a failed idea here.

Time to give your god a rest, and put him back on the shelf marked "ugly myths nobody believes in any more"

Since what may be known about God is plain to them .. because God has made it plain to them . . . For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities .. his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen .. being understood from what has been made .. so that men are without excuse

In answer to your last question?

That's easy: laziness.

ALL god-based creation stories ultimately stem from sheer laziness.

It is easy (and lazy) to claim "goddidit"

It is >>hard<< and difficult to discover how it really happened.
