Abiogenesis is the formation of a living cell from non-living matter.
Evolution refers to the changes that occurred to life after the first cell formed. Evolution is a change in the allele frequencies of a population
I don’t believe in abiogenesis from nothing as in something formed from nothing by itself. But, I do believe that God spoke everything into
creation. And so, through his power, breath and word He created something out of Himself. So, the thing is for the most part God is something and thru
Him all life, earth, cells, we, were created. And I think that one has to remember that not all Christians believe the same thing. There are plenty of
Christians fighting amongst themselves about what is evil, about what salvation is, about how God works. Religion stems from man, not from God.
But, just like I choose to believe in God, and firmly believe there is evidence, and that science can prove the existence of God, then I am not going
to argue with someone who chooses not to believe in God. That is a personal choice.
It is not my place to make anyone believe. If the topic comes up then I will discuss and I will share my viewpoints. God doesn’t make anyone
believe, and so I am not going to be as pompous as to think it is my duty to make someone else believe. I can point the way, share testimonies,
explain evidence, and encourage, but I believe that is all I can do. It would be the same thing as anyone of another faith insisting I believe and
that they will kill me if I don’t change my faith. That is ridiculous. You are forcing me to save my life, and not giving me a heart choice. And so
if I chose another religion under those circumstances my belief is not true. That is a strong example, but it gets my point across.
I don’t enter atheist threads unless someone is asking a question that pertains to my belief. I don’t get why athiests, etc., feel they have to
attack Christian threads all the time to put down Christians. It’s very much an attack.
And so, you asked a question that has people of various beliefs, non beliefs replying and you choose to attack and throw out belittling comments like,
“You’ve had too much Holy Water to drink.” Why do you feel you have to do that? That is not debate behavior. It would seem to indicate that a
raw nerve has been touched. I know you will say that is not so, but are the verbal attacks necessary in a world of adults? It is not classy or
respectful. Shouldn’t we respect each other when trying to have a civil conversation? Or are you just trying to use this thread to slam Christians
at your every opportunity? It is hard to tell what your true intention with this thread is. Now, don’t fly off and attack me right off the bat –
think of what I have just said and use your reason and true nature to rise to the occasion instead of some simply words thrown back which just imply
there are emotions behind your original question. And then let’s talk.
I think everyone has good feedback for you, but that the majority didn’t understand your question, and that your response has made them not bother
further. I think this could be a very interesting thread.
