Did clay mould life's origins?
Makes sense AND it's in the Bible!!!
Job 33:5 (KJV)
Behold, I am according to thy wish in God's stead: I also am formed out of the clay.
Clay, pyrites in thermal chimneys in rift zones, microcavities in feldspars in the tidal zone of early Earth, many, many candidates for place of the original abio-genesis.
It is an embarrassment of riches for those interested in this field of science. Of course, feldspars weather into clay, and rift zones then and now extend onto land. So it may well have been a combination of all the possibilities. Or have occured deep underground in conditions that we have not even imagined yet. Fascinating subject. Definitely leads one to assume that life is not unique to our planet.
Life may not be unique to this planet but it is within the universe.
Imagine clay wrapping itself around beautifully formed cells and blood, oh and don't forget sexual organs for reproduction.
That there is evidence of a creator.
Fellow, all the evidence simply points to the laws of chemistry and physics for the origin of life on this planet. If you wish to state that whatever Diety you care to worship created those laws with this purpose, I would have no problem with that. However, like evolution, abiogenisis is being shown to be the natural result of the laws of nature, not the wave of some primtives Deities wand.
