Druscilla, the problem with evolution is simple. Let us say for the sake of hypothesis, that a bolt of lightning did come down and zapp the murky mud,
and Wha-laa..! a first cell formed. And lets say that it took about a billion years or so for that to happen. At least this is what science claims in
the age of the planet Earth. Next something strange happens. The first cell dies. So then we wait again for a second chance and BAM ! another
lightning strike, and it hits the same mud pool and again another cell is born like magic. Then let's progress and say that somehow this one and only
cell achieves intelligence and suddenly it knows it must divide and consume nourishment, and it does. And it divides and divides and so on, but then,
OH NO ! the mud pool dries and the cells die. So then we wait for another couple of billion years and finally, a stable cell group., Now, let's say it
suddenly achieves superior intelligence to know and to do, and decides to grow legs, and arms, and fins and so on. And everything is cool. But then,
OH NO ! now comes the late bombardment period and the earth is turned int molten lava and what life there was disappears. Then we start the whole
thing over again, and again, and again. In the end, the universe grows old, and entropy sets in and it dies a cold lifeless dark empty void as it
stretches apart to infinity. This is why evolution is totally ridiculous. I could win the jackpot lottery every day for a thousand years straight and
never lose or miss one day before the chances that the total perfect world of evolution would ever come to pass.
Your "understanding" of how life began on this planet is considerably off from current models, and a number of hypotheses, some even including
I suggest you take some time in reading and educating yourself on the number of different possibilities, including familiarizing with the differences
between biological and pre-biological biological building blocks, if, that is, your bias hasn't already predisposed you toward automatic rejection and
oversimplification of a complicated question with complicated answers covering several ranges of differing possibilities.
Of course, it's always much easier for those who lack the education and/or facility for understanding complex events and answers to require a simple
big-button rounded-edges non-choking-hazard play-school handicap-accessible answer to how the universe works, in which case, invisible people in the
sky making things happen it is.
You're more than welcome to take the play-school handicap-accessible answer and run with it.
Nothing worth having, however, is easy.
