Re: Theories - Origin of Life

Canalon By the way I am not trying to prove the existence of anything except design. You should not presume to ascribe motives to me. Don't demonstrate fear of discussing science by trying to turn it towards some form of religion. Now how much pop corn do you have? Why not put it to good use and in...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

canolan Well I may be wrong, but you have chosen a rather curious way to try to demonstrate your point. I assume that of the “countless ways” to make two systems communicate and do it more safely one way would be to take a lesson from the snake ie locate the olfactory system in the mouth and make th...

BDVM Thanks very much for your response. It is certainly educational and appreciated.

Theories - Origin of life

I have only just joined this forum and have been rather interested in this thread. In particular the debate between Jonl1408 and BDDVM. Jonl1408 You clearly have a confidence in your bible and trust it considerably. May I suggest that when you debate the bible in a science forum you be prepared to d...
