So I would like to know what the Pit thinks about the genesis.

On the biological point of view I believe in the Oparin/Miller Theories.
And for my catholic faith, I am never sure if life is actually that sacred.

Basically:
Religion - Creationism
Biology - Abiogenesis (Oparin)

I believe in EXOGENESIS

for the record: musically a great song, lyrically it doesn't live up to the subject


to be serious I believe in abiogenesis

There's a reason there's an ONLY thread for creationism V evolution.

Abiogenesis.

I take the science over religion purely because science is based on evidence... Where as religion is based on nothing.

It was closed and this is origin not evolution.
EDIT: Okay, no close. Just messed up with the thread names.

its both!!!!!! use rationalistic thinking, combining science with philosophy. i think God created the world, but he created it the scientific way

Down with creationism!!

Although, whatever you believe you can always ask something along the lines of "Where did that come from?" or "How did God come into existence?"

Quote by Zoot Allures
There is only one answer here worth considering which is abiogenesis because that is backed up by evidence whereas religion is just a load of fairy tales.

There's evidence of abiogenesis?

Umm.. EXCUSE ME. Religion is based on nothing? I think not.

It is based off of 2000 years of the game 'telephone' and some book..
(Obviously a certain religion is coming to mind)

Either way, I thought this was going to be more interesting thread, not just the same unanswerable(At this point) question over and over again.

Why not something more interesting as in.. How do you think life came to earth? instead of religion versus facts.

And to answer the above, since we have found Martian soil on our planet... That always intrigued my thought process. One day Mars.. we shall see

It's the most likley outcome although as far as im aware it's not 100% proven yet like evolution for instance. Although it looks VERY much like abiogenesis is the right answer , only a fool would think god started it off, there's no logic in that.

Exactly, it's just a theory based on certain preconceived notions we have of how the world works, which happen to suit us at this particular moment. Creationism as just as unlikely, if not more, but real knowledge is being able to accept you know very little and probably never will.

in other words, since we weren't there and there's little concrete evidence, both those theories are worth about as much as a dolphin's opinion on Picasso.

Funny old world eh.

A dolphin's opinion on Picasso is worth millions
