That's a complete nonsense argument.
The theory of evolution makes no statement regarding how life started, so it doesn't matter how it did. If it was the mighty spaghetti monster, evolution would still be how biodiversity came to be. Same goes for abiogenesis, or "insert random god(s) you like".
We can also examine your grand grand grandfathers remains and accurately determine if he's related to you or not...and no, we don't need to know how life first started for that either. We have to understand how gravity works to build plains...yet we don't know how gravity came to be in the first place.
Do you see where I'm going with this and why the "house on shaky foundations" argument is silly?
Of course - you'll try your best to separate the evolution theory as far away as possible from abioGenesis hypothesis because to do so is to render the theory silly and weak.
You know, carriage without the horse or is it the carriage before the horse - see where I'm going with this?
Anyway are you saying that abioGenesis hypothesis is not related to evolution theory?
curious to know.
