    All the statements in the above are false, and no facts here since your arguing from a religious agenda thousands of years old, and not science. Yes, life can come from life, and also the first life arose from non-life.

    And there are a gazillion transitional forms that have been identified to just name one thing that has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    One point - I'd make it like a 'dir' where people have to sign up and it's hopefully blocked from the internet. Perhaps call it "abandon all hope, ye who enter here".

    I say nay to substance just simply......becoming alive

    I say......the dead cannot beget the living

    so what if amino acids form when conditions are right

    at some point...God did say....

    It's alive!......It's alive!

    8.7M species, all interrelated.
    Many transitional fossils.
    Many similarities plus a common ancestor of chimps and humans.
    Darwin's theory of natural selection is commonsense and easily demonstrated.

    Is this what you use as a scientific source of information?

    All I can say is that the OP is terribly misinformed. Where did he get that "No transitional fossils" claim? I was rolling on the floor from that one alone.

    All species are connected by DNA
    All fossils are transitional
    Back to DNA, 99% identical to Chimpanzees.
    Darwin made a good start, much more evidence has been found since.

    Note, abiogenesis is not evolution.

    1. there are far more species then just 1.4 million.

    2. no transitionals? obvious falsehood. Here's just one example out of a ridiculous amount of such:

    upload_2020-2-10_14-44-25.png

    3. no link between chimps and humans? You mean, aside from the fact that we are both primates with ridiculously similar DNA, a ridiculous amount of shared ERV's and other such genetic markers, human chromosome nr 2 which is a fused version of 2 and 13 of chimps (noting we have a chromosome pair less then chimps - the fused one is the one we're missing) and the many many other such links?

    What hypocritical rots, Thief.

    You are forgetting that god have magically transformed lifeless dust into a living human being, adult male.

    Here, you have the dead (dust) begetting the living (man).

    That’s even more impossible than anything that any models of Abiogenesis have come up with.

    There is nothing natural about such dust-into-man transformation from Genesis 2.

    Amino acids matter, because molecularly and biologically, it is the building block of proteins, which is the most essential for life.

    In the human body, proteins can be found in every part of the body, from tissues (eg skin, muscles, tendons, nerves, etc), to organs (eg brain, heart, liver, kidney, sexual organs, etc), in every cells, chromosomes, and so on.

    How the amino acids sequence in the proteins, determine their physiological functions.

    And there, are at least 20 different types of amino acids, which naturally found in different types of proteins. Which type is found in the protein will also determine the function(s) of the protein.

    In the human body, proteins make up about 20% of all molecules found in the human body, which is the largest composition of organic matters. So, yes amino acids are vital for life.

    Without amino acids, there are no proteins.

    Without proteins, there are no brain, hearts, livers, muscles, eyes, skin, cells, chromosomes, etc. Without proteins, it is not possible for DNA replication. With proteins, there is no catalyzing metabolic reactions, no responses to stimuli.

    And without proteins, there would be no sperms and no eggs, and if that is the case, there would be no pregnancies, no fetuses, no babies.

    You would know this if you bother to crack open and read modern biology textbook.

    Genesis creation never explain anything regarding to the anatomy and physiology of biology.

    What is the heart? What does it do? How does it work? If you have some sorts of heart disease, then how would you treat?

    Then you have other questions for the brain and the nervous system, the liver, the bones, bloods, reproductive organs, and so on.

    The Bible, especially Genesis, cannot any of these questions.

    Why do you insist on treating the bloody Bible as if it is science book?

    Your dismissal of amino acid, only demonstrated your utter ignorance of just how important amino acid.

    Without amino acids, there can be no proteins. Without proteins there can be no life. You would have no cells of any kind, no organs, no blood.

    Before you say something so bonkers, “so what if amino acids form...”, think!

    TagliatelliMonster’s image of ostrich, applies to you as much as to theQuestion.

    If our hero of the op ever comes back
    we'd like to see if he will get around to
    conceding at least one point that he got wrong.

    The 1.4 millions species thing is so obviously wrong.

    Is he capable of admitting that?

    Yoo hoo!

    and at what point would you declare.....It's alive!

    and would you be Spirit as you do so?

    At what point would you declare dust to be “alive”???

    Dust are lifeless byproduct waste.

    Only in myth, dust can be magically transformed into a living human being.
