Define living matter. Until we have a compromise what "living matter" is, we can't discuss (or better, I won't discuss, as the opponent might say
"that was nice, but living matter has to have the following signs.. which your example didn't have.").
IF I define living matter as a composition of different basic ingredients, like amino acids, there were experiments which might provide insight how
simple examples of those might have been created.
Obviously, we are not at the stage to (re-)animate dead matter. Yet.
Please explain how the Cambrian explosion could have occurred through what even Darwin called an anomaly, more or less.
IF there was a mass-extinction-event like a huge meteor impact, earth would have been devastated and all major life-forms would have been dead. Which
would leave a lot of room for new animals and plants. Which could take a "leaping start", as most basic ingredients, like mentioned above, were
present and therefore, life could start running. With lots of room and lots of different food, there was a wide range of possible life-forms with only
a small amount of direct competition. Therefore "explosion" of life-forms. This is a theory. A very logical one.
According to the anthropic principle, life would not, nor could not, produce life forms as we know them, if the parameters of our universe were not so
precisely "fine-tuned" to be able to create life. The anthropic principle, as it is now, undeniable. Life as we know it is due to an entirely
incomprehensible set of laws. So please explain, through natural processes, why life is an inevitable probability.
IF we can't deny that those parameters are so very much fine-tuned, and we don't have evidence against that, we should be happy to live in this
universe. What if there was another universe before this one where those parameters were badly tuned? Well, we wouldn't have lived and couldn't have
complained about the bad situation, right?
Therefore, we live and as there is so much space in the universe (every day a new planet is detected), live is nearly inevitable. Statistics 101.
There is no need for a "fine-tuner" (aka god). We just were lucky. Maybe there were 10^80 universes before this one where live couldn't exist. We
I've heard many times from evolutionists how life is inevitable. More than that, I've actually heard from many evolutionary scientists, that the
evolutionary theory, is in fact, a fact.
Please, please prove that. Because as far as I know, earth is the only planet you can use to back your theory up with.
One planet not enough? Oh come on.
Okay, facts are the backing of a theory. If you can provide facts backing your theory, you are in safe waters. If there were facts crossing your
theory you would have to work on that theory. At the moment, there are no known facts which work against evolution. Therefore, the theory of evolution
Look, I'm not trying to prove what is or what was. All I'm asking is for you to provide an undeniable link as to what is declared as fact.
What is an evolutionary fact? I haven't seen one yet.
Could YOU define what an undeniable fact for evolution in the face of a creationist or whatever you would call yourself might be? I doubt that you
could or would. Because that would leave your field of "believe", "faith" and so on and would make you attackable - maybe not today, but maybe in
the future. And I have never seen a man of faith willing to tell me one verifiable point or provable myth.
Because deep down you don't want to know if there is any prove..
