|MadSci Network: General Biology|
I thank you for the lengthy response, I understood 80% on a quick first read but will hang onto it to read again. You put into words the aspect of religious belief which I could not express -they are running around in circles accepting the simple truths that are fed to them without question. I HAVE a question. and a because thats the way it is answer is not good enough. I have 5 years Biology & Chemistry in High school(60/70's) plus additional studies in minerology(3 yrs) and water sciences(2 yrs). Religious faith- Christians. 1.) question: has life ever been recreated in the lab?(since the 70's alot has happened). My understanding what life is: an electro-biochemical process - correct? Because of a girl "always the girl" introducing me to her faith. I had pointed questions as well. Their counter points are interesting and I would like an answer to justify where I stood (on the wall leaning toward science). Trying to be fair, I listened to what was said. "In the beginning there was darkness, God said let there be light. Interesting comparison to the big bang theory, no? (I suppose I could also make the comparison towards no hope and hope through faith.) nothing to do with space. Hmm. Another pointed question from me "Where did GOD come from?" the response: "always has existed" 2.)Where did the dust, and energy come from? I believe I remember someone saying that it always was. Is that about right?
