How can you have Evolution without the Origin of Life?

It's funny debating people who try to use evolution to refute Intelligent Design or to support their Atheism. Evolution does neither of these things. It's also funny seeing them go crazy when someone mentions how evolution as a byproduct of naturalism can't or didn't occur. I was just reading this article:

Evolution Just Got Harder to Defend

A new fossil discovery makes it even tougher for Darwinists to explain the origin of life.

A new discovery makes explaining even that first cell tougher still. Fossils unearthed by Australian scientists in Greenland may be the oldest traces of life ever discovered. A team from the University of Wollongong recently published their findings in the journal “Nature,” describing a series of structures called “stromatolites” that emerged from receding ice.

This, admits the New York Times, “complicate[s] the story of evolution of early life from chemicals ... .” No kidding! According to conventional geology, these microbe colonies existed on the heels of a period when Earth was undergoing heavy asteroid bombardment, making it virtually uninhabitable. This early date, adds The Times, “leaves comparatively little time for evolution to have occurred … .”

I then went to the comments section and the Darwinist were going NUTS! Any question about Evolution and the Origin of Life garners the same blind outrage from Darwinist. They scream:


This statement makes no sense. Evolution had to have it's origin in life. Everything has it's origin. Evolution didn't magically just pop out of nowhere. It needed life in order to evolve, therefore the origin of life is paramount to evolution.

When it comes to life on this planets the origins tell you how life can evolve and these origins are telling us that this couldn't have occured naturally.

To me, we don't see randomness because at the heart of randomness is an underlying mechanism of fined tuned rules and design.

If you have an infinite set of Poker Games you will get random varions of Poker games and each game can be different. What you will not get is Poker evolving into Go Fish games or Gin Rummy games. This is because the origin of Poker was designed by intelligence and you can get random variations but they can only occur within these set of initial rules.

We see this with the fine tuning of the universe and the genetic code.Life evolved but it did so within a specific set of laws and rules put in place by intelligence.

Why do people that believe in intelligent design accept that God just existed?
Who created their God?
