|Well, not really, but that's another point to make. What I'm saying is that green made a statement and provided no backing to it whatsoever. "Everything must have been created by someone/something..." Why? What's the evidence that shows that it couldn't happen another way? Sure, there might be some, but non was provided.
|Careful guys. green might start the "holier than though" routine.
People make statements without logical backing (or whatever it is we're talking) constantly. For example, Xathien. Ask him to post a few thoughts and you'll see what I mean.
|Guess that should be "thou" instead of "though," huh?|

|This is to green, concerning his "I would have to say there is a God." post.
First off, do your research. Life does not have to come from preexisting life. Amino acids can be generated in the lab from inorganic materials (all they need is some heat and a jolt of electricity). These acids, under the right conditions combine to form random sequences. Almost all the sequences don't do anything, they usually just break back down into their component acids. However, there is an astronomically small chance that the sequence will be self replicating. Of course, amino acid sequences only combine under specific conditions. As it happens, early earth provided these conditions. A self replicating sequence would only come about after millions of years of random combination. The primordial soups of ancient Earth had all the time in the world. Throw in Darwin's evolutionary theories and voila, you have life capable of mutation (evolution) and reproduction where there previously was none.
As to your postulate 'Nothing would exist unless something created it', I can't disprove that. As a postulate, it's a matter of faith. Just remember that that something doesn't necessarily have to be a concious (spelling?) god.
