    I just watched another how the earth was made documentary on Nat Geo. And I'm just as amazed as ever that we are here, let alone able to communicate like this.

    This is the nut shell.

    Something made something go bang in our reality.
    Our star was formed.
    Out earth was tumbling molten rock.
    We get hit by a stray planet about the size of Mars.
    That stabilizes us.
    Water shows up.
    We get some life forms. outta nothing, literally, nothing.
    earth freezes, kills everything.
    Earth melts, there's life in the sea, from nothing, again.
    For no reason, moss move onto the barren rocks.
    Moss becomes trees, for no reason.
    A fish jumps out of the water and stays out of the water cuz it can, for no reason.
    Earth becomes a barren waste land from the heat.
    Heat cools.
    Dinosaurs, again, outta thin air.
    Dino's die, and boom, mammals take over.

    I'm not one to follow religions. I think most are bunk with wisdom tossed in and enough rules to control the flock.

    I also don't believe in coincidence. And THAT'S a lot of them.

    So to think there isn't something helping life along, just seems arrogant.

    Thanks for reading.

    Or you could be the only other person to post in an already dead thread. :lol:

    About 10 years ago the Science Channel put out a similar show. It caused me to believe there must be something nudging things along.

    Well according to Scientology we were dropped off here by aliens and they're going to come back one day to pick up only those who bought L Ron Hubbard's books. :dunno:

    I think the one thing about abiogenesis and the early Earth that's just mind blowing is the time scale it's on. We're talking billions of years. I can't even comprehend how long that is. My grandparents seem OLD, and they're only like seventy-ish.

    There is or was an idea floating around, and I don't know how old it is, that single-celled organisms showed up on earth via meteorite. I think it was a Neil deGrasse Tyson lecture on youtbue that I heard this in. Something to think about I guess.

    I was gonna give an honest reply regarding the competing theories of abiogenesis and such, but then I read the OP and realized thumbs is just trolling and hardly seems interested in an honest discussion of the matter

    In a universe the size of ours coincidences are merely statistical realities.


    Yeah, it's that big.

    Interesting. I watched one the other day about the absence of fossilized "in between" animals, humans or plants.

    Every time they find a new fossil, the anti-science idiots proclaim the existence of two new gaps in which God can hide
