    Spontaneous linking of pre DNA snippets shows what could have happened billions of years ago.

    This is nothing but ridiculous speculations in an attempt to eliminate God as the Creator and bring in a political New World Order.

    There is, and never has been a 'battle'. Maybe the media in the US gives you that impression? And quoting science results won't get you anywhere with creationists anyway. The only cure for creationism is a proper education.

    Creationists refuse proper education for fear of losing their minds.

    There was an idea put forward (think it was mentioned in the 'True Detective) that creationist type religion was akin to a 'language virus' that prevented sufferers from thinking rationally.

    Adults, yes. But younger creationists often change their views as they go through school. People like RJ and Robbie are lost causes. Just give up.

    Thanks. Reading the article.

    " —what might have preceded the formation of such unicellular organisms is still a mystery. "

    Oh RATS !!! I thought they were on to something.

    There are a lot of steps needed to suss out how life began on Earth. I wouldn't be surprised if we find life on Mars or Europa or Enceledus before we figure out how life started here. I don't mean green skinned aliens, scientists would be more than thrilled to find bacterial life of some kind.

    Then the game goes: Does it have Earth style DNA which would say something about the universality of life following the same general pattern as our double helix DNA we have here, or would it be yet another molecular method of encoding and decoding data to make proteins and such. That would tell a completely different story of the universality of life.

    You have been reading too much science fiction.

    Once again you show little comprehension. That is speculation which can lead to good science, I wasn't writing a story which I included those ideas as a background of fact.

    But then, that is your MO. And always will be.

    Even if babies have a built in belief in some kind of god, that alone doesn't mean there IS some kind of a god.

    I'll leave that for your vast intellect to figure out.
