S/O evolution

Do you believe we came from primordial (sp?) soup? Do you believe we came from basically nothing? If you think this is true, then why do you suppose it can't be done in labs?

  • It takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in God and the Bible.

  • "Was It the Origin of Life"? Biologists Create Self-replicating RNA Molecule

    "The enzyme, tC19Z, that has been synthesised could be an artificial version of one of the first enzymes that ever existed on our planet three billion years ago -- and a clue to how life itself got started. Their goal is to create fully self-replicating RNA molecules in the lab."

    They have recently been able to create RNA in a lab, but they are trying to figure out the rest of the 'recipe' for life--how to get it to self-replicate.

    You don't read much science news, do you?  We are learning more every day:

    And, yes, I do believe in evolution, and that the universe started with the Big Bang.

  • You really lack a basic science education. The "Primordial soup" you refer to shows you lack of education on the entire theory of evolution and the common gene pool which is not a swamp of ooze. But rather the enzymes proteins and amino acids which are common to all life forms which are made fromt he same nucleobases Adenine, Guanine, Thymine, and Cytosine, and or course Uracil in the case of RNA.

  • If you look at how cells develop and what happens when they mutate and so forth it gives a pretty good example of how it all came to be.

  • The chances that everything came together perfectly at the perfect time just by chance is practically impossible.
