What we have here is an excellent example of a bully who finally meet his/her match and can't respond intelligently, thus he/she is reduced to just ridicule.

In other words all the huffing and puffing are nothing but smoke screen and reveals the weakness of his/her argument if there ever was one.

So may I suggest to study up more so that you can at least offer a grown up reply instead of the childish reply above. That is of course if you're able think intelligently as 5th grader.

After reading your post and the links you've provided - you struck me as a deep thinker if not a philosopher. Unfortunately I don't have that much tolerance with philosophy nor have the heart to discuss philosophy.

In any case there's one thing that stand out in your post.

The answer to my question:


Was there a programming CAUSE?

You said:




There certainly was and is..


If so is the CAUSE intelligent?

And who is this INTELLIGENT first CAUSE?

Is this INTELLIGENT CAUSE according to your philosophy - Existence?

If so - what is existence in scientific terms?

Is it an entity or just a force?

Like you said:




Giving a conscious mind can't exist without "CAUSE", yes existence itself did all the work by itself and for itself. Existence creates us, and we being of existence can go on to create other things. At the end of the day, Existence itself is the first cause, and the totality of causality to which governs everything including the conscious state.

Now so as to redeem yourself from further embarrassment and show that you have at least an once of intelligence let me please post this question to you also:

If the apparatus used in the Urey-Miller experiment (that produced the non-living organic materials) correspond to the Earth's primitive atmosphere, and the organic materials correspond to the building blocks for life, whom do the scientists - Miller/Urey, et al correspond to in the abiogenesis hypothesis world?

Blind Chance Event or Intelligence?

Don't know?

Or tolerance for reading comprehension..



If so is the CAUSE intelligent?


If you bothered to read my posts you would have had the answer.. I suggest you read up on information science and information theory. And if you want the simple answer: Existence itself governs everything including anything conscious..



And who is this INTELLIGENT first CAUSE?


What part about the fact you can't create that which yourself requires to exist do you not comprehend? You can't create existence kiddo... And again, intelligence can not exist without cause, and it's pretty impossible to be a "first cause" when consciousness itself can not exist without cause..



Is this INTELLIGENT CAUSE according to your philosophy - Existence?


Existence itself is the totality of causality. Existence itself is the force to all cause, the foundation of all rules, processes, systems, or things that exist, could exist, have existed, or will ever exist. That includes governing consciousness sir...



If so - what is existence in scientific terms?


The totality of everything. Synonymous with reality in it's totality.


Is it an entity or just a force?


All of the above. It's me, you, the sand on the beach, the space, every dimensional value, every bit of information, and every conscious and unconscious thing. It's every rule, every law, every force to cause..

Since you wanted to quote me here:



Giving a conscious mind can't exist without "CAUSE", yes existence itself did all the work by itself and for itself. Existence creates us, and we being of existence can go on to create other things. At the end of the day, Existence itself is the first cause, and the totality of causality to which governs everything including the conscious state.


I have a question I expect you to answer:



What is GOD without Existence?


Now that is a very interesting question giving the fact that existence itself is the Pantheist GOD, and is it you that is begging us that your GOD must "be of existence" like the rest of us? Must suck to be slave to require another religions GOD to even have the ability to beg for the existence of your GOD. And what's worse, as I have stated before, existence is the top and bottom of the GOD totem pole. It's the entire spectrum, and it literally makes the concept of GOD moot since it would make everything GOD to which includes all of us since we are all of existence itself.. So sorry, the only GOD and cause to everything is existence itself! And if you think not, you can feel free to answer my question and then demonstrate empirically how I am wrong here.

Blind Chance Event or Intelligence?

Don't know?


Blind chance, as it would have to be irregardless since consciousness can't exist without cause, and is an emergent property of energy and processes itself.. Hence you lose regardless of how you want to look at it.. And to directly answer, they are referencing energy itself, and how energy can interfere with itself.. The apparatus is irrelevant since such conditions the apparatus simulates can be found on Earth, or in Earth's history. They only need prove the Chemistry. Earth is a giant self run chemistry lab and it doesn't need intelligence to do anything at all. It's made of energy, and atoms made of energy to which does all the work. Let me help you further here:



E = Existence = Energy = information = force = cause = emergent properties = you, me, the stars, and everything else.

Or:

E = Existence
E = Energy
E = Everywhere
E = Emergence or Emerging properties
E = MC^2
E = Evolution
E = Everything
E = Everyone
E = Me to

And if you like, E = easy to understand without having to go into Everything E can do, or how E does Everything it can do. E is thus the only Established and Empirically supported truth we have thus far. E Enables us to do the things we do, and be who we are. And without E there is nothing, no Existence, no me, no you, not anything. And well, it's good to know that E exists simply because nothing can't. It's good to know that E can neither be created nor destroyed. This means we will Exist in some form or another regardless of what happens after death. E is even every letter in the alphabet since it is the Energy that makes up the very Essence of Every letter.

E Explains itself and is self-Explanatory.. It's also Eternal, and gives us the ability to Even have Emotion..

It's simply "E"

Yep, it's simply E if you really want to break it all down into it's simplest form. Now if you like, as stated before, I can describe how this works in relation to a conscious state and time, or the inertia of information in regards to why we know consciousness can't exist without cause.


Just as there is no intelligence required in the formation of snowflakes, there is none required in the formation of life either. Both are electromagnetic phenomenon. Both reside on chaos theory where order arises from feedback in the system. Hence, when ever forces meet in harmony, you get explicit order even if it appears disordered. And without such systems, you can't have life, or any hope of a conscious state son.. It's not hard to grasp, it's a no duh at this point! What you should be asking is how fortunate and amazing it is that a conscious state even evolved to exist at all as that is what is the most unlikely thing to ever exist giving what is required to support it. Cognitive systems theory is a very, very, very complicated field that includes biochemistry.. Simply put, intelligence being the source to everything is a laughable joke.

So every time you want to use the "intelligence argument", I will simply point you to learn your ABC's, and to learn energy =/= information as cause of causation:

Dr. Ratcliff and his adviser, Michael Travisano, are experts in experimental evolution. They design experiments in which microbes can evolve interesting new traits within weeks.

“We were sitting in his office drinking coffee, talking about what would be the coolest thing you could do in the lab,” Dr. Ratcliff said. “O.K., the origin of life would be too hard. But other than the origin of life, what would be the coolest thing?” They decided it would be observing single-celled microbes evolving a primitive form of multicellularity.


The scientists designed an experiment with brewer’s yeast, which normally lives as single cells, feeding on sugar and budding off daughter cells to reproduce. If you want to know more about electromagnetism and life, you can go here:

Electromagnetism is responsible for practically all the phenomena encountered in daily life, with the exception of gravity. Ordinary matter takes its form as a result of en.wikipedia.org... intermolecular forces between individual molecules in matter. Electromagnetism is also the force which holds electrons and protons together inside atoms, which are the building blocks of molecules. This governs the processes involved in chemistry, which arise from interactions between the electrons inside and between atoms.

We report on a case of autocatalytic feedback in a template directed synthesis of a self-complementary hexa-PNA from two trimeric building blocks. The course of the reaction was monitored in the presence of increasing initial concentrations of product by means of RP-HPLC. Kinetic modeling with the SimFit program revealed parabolic growth according to the so-called square-root law. The observed template effect, as well as the rate of the ligation, was significantly influenced by factors like nucleophilic catalysts, pH value, and uncharged co-solvents. Systematic optimization of the reaction conditions allowed us to increase the autocatalytic efficiency of the system by two orders of magnitude.

Abstract

We report here two self-replicating peptide-derived macrocycles that emerge from a small dynamic combinatorial library and compete for a common feedstock. Replication is driven by nanostructure formation, resulting from the assembly of the peptides into fibers held together by β sheets. Which of the two replicators becomes dominant is influenced by whether the sample is shaken or stirred. These results establish that mechanical forces can act as a selection pressure in the competition between replicators and can determine the outcome of a covalent synthesis.

This reminds me of the idiotic and very ignorant peanut butter jar argument... And yet one makes an argument using a computer to which science built...See this is what we call an argument from ignorance because it's clear that people making such arguments have no education what-so-ever regarding the subjects. So they feel small in not knowing anything, and thus need to make them selves look stupid by pretending they have some sort of clue as to what they are talking about. :/

These are the what you call "excellent intelligent responses"? If so, then you got nothing substantial to offer.

Why you can't even answer a simple question: who are the Intelligent people correspond to in the abiogenesis world?

No wonder your only response is a childish ridicule.

So you can't answer my questions, especially the one asking you what is god without existence, or especially when you can't seem to engage in any sort of intellectually honest discourse. Hell, you can't even seem to provide academic level material, arguments, or empirical evidence to back yourself up. And you clearly are avoiding at all costs of having to do so. You're basically intellectually bankrupt and you are trying to withdraw funds from an account that is in the red. Worst yet, your question was answered, and the question you are resting your entire argument on is laughable at best as it's not even relevant. And then you complain by appeal to emotion about childish ridicule when you get proved wrong, or when you are unable to cope with being intellectually owned in a discussion that is clearly above your head. And this is a precious statement:


study up more before you engage in a adult conversation


The irony of that statement is incredible to say the least. Here is the total value of all your posts on an academic level: 0

It's pretty funny how that 0 is the same shape of your level of intellectual integrity, honesty, and form of argument to which is nothing but circular. Hence, you have zero relevance in this discussion thus far, and we are wonder when you will actually learn how to be relevant in a discussion. So here we GO, and I am going to do as I promised:



So every time you want to use the "intelligence argument", I will simply point you to learn your ABC's, and to learn energy =/= information as cause of causation:

How about you check out those argumentative fallacies first so you FINALLY realize what garbage your arguments are?


Because until you do that, all you display here is a lack of education and an incredible amount of blind ignorance

Hell, you can't even seem to provide academic level material, arguments, or empirical evidence to back yourself up. And you clearly are avoiding at all costs of having to do so. You're basically intellectually bankrupt and you are trying to withdraw funds from an account that is in the red. Worst yet, your question was answered, and the question you are resting your entire argument on is laughable at best as it's not even relevant. And then you complain by appeal to emotion about childish ridicule when you get proved wrong, or when you are unable to cope with being intellectually owned in a discussion that is clearly above your head. And this is a precious statement:


study up more before you engage in a adult conversation


The irony of that statement is incredible to say the least. Here is the total value of all your posts on an academic level: 0

It's pretty funny how that 0 is the same shape of your level of intellectual integrity, honesty, and form of argument to which is nothing but circular. Hence, you have zero relevance in this discussion thus far, and we are wonder when you will actually learn how to be relevant in a discussion. So here we GO, and I am going to do as I promised:



So every time you want to use the "intelligence argument", I will simply point you to learn your ABC's, and to learn energy =/= information as cause of causation:

When you can start there, learn the basics, then you might just graduate to a more meaningful and relevant position in this discussion. And here is a good video on advice when getting owned in a debate you clearly have lost:

Huh? - just because I haven't responded to your question (yet) doesn't mean that I can't answer them. Far from it, but like I said - I don't have that much tolerance to engage in philosophical discourse because I'm more of the practical mindset.

Of course you can philosophized all you want but the fact remains - Intelligence IS required to create Intelligent things especially INTELLIGENT Life forms.

And to me INTELLIGENCE require a mind, a mind require a thinking ability, a brain, a intelligent brain requires a body - a person.

That's how practical and logical I am.

So "what is god without existence"?

Answer: whatever you want it to be.

But to me the question to ask is:

What is Existence without God?

Answer - a meaningless existence. An existence without an ULTIMATE purpose. An existence based on what we make it to be, based on human imperfect flawed philosophy.

But even in this frame of mind one is still confronted with the real meaning of our existence.

If there's NO God - The Creator of Life then you make life as you wish.

But if God exist then my existence is forever connected to his existence.

Anyway- like you said, I:




have zero relevance in this discussion thus far, and we are wonder when you will actually learn how to be relevant in a discussion.


because the discussion IS as i have indicated in the title of this thread:

"abioGenesis hypothesis: scientific or just a silly idea? What say you?"

but then again - since abiogenesis is based on ancient philosophy then your ideas might be considered a part of it.

'Existence is the creator of us just like life spontaneously generated from non-life'

Both ideas doesn't mean a squat - but a flawed human philosophy.

Well, it's the only true answer given that we DON'T KNOW...so calling it "pathetic" is incredibly silly


Hey if you DON'T KNOW - you don't know. Nothing wrong or shameful about that (unless you're lying).

But what's PATHETIC is a response like this:

They're very similar


Yep...business as usual.




The last one is just for comic affect


because the person responding is showing / revealing his / her weakness. Just like a pathetic bully who just found out that he/she can't bully or fool people anymore.

So he / she hides it by means of a PATHETIC ridicule.

As for the above abstracts - the fact still remain that Life can ONLY come from pre-existing life. Any life form created from non-living materials can ONLY be created by someone who knows what He is doing - with supreme intellect and full understanding of ALL laws present in the universe and ALL things in both the known and the unknown worlds. Someone who is able to bring back someone from the dead.

As far as humans are concerned - it ain't happening and will never happen unless of course he / she has the ability to do such "miraculous acts".

Besides none of the experiments you've provided show conclusively how life Originally came to be by chance events. In fact most of it are just speculations.

like this one I randomly picked:


Oligopeptide formation may thus have played a role in the evolution of homochirality of sugars. For instance, we found that ancient amino acids that are oligomerized to peptides with the help of volcanic gas20 catalyze the asymmetric


"Oligopeptide formation may thus have played a role in the evolution of homochirality of sugars"

"The studies reported here suggest that COS, a simple volcanic gas, could have mediated both.."
