ABIOGENESIS DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY.

I'll take a guess, probably more accurate too. Some complex molecules had the right chemical structure that allowed for self-replication under the right circumstances and it started from there.
What you are describing is magic.

Or one could say 'god did it.'
11/16/2007 9:40:30 PM
Yes, I suppose in a manner of speaking that would be abiogenesis, but you'd sooner be able to walk through a wall due to quantum tunneling effects than something like that happening. Now self-replicating peptides in a swamp of amino acids, that's a little more likely.
11/16/2007 9:41:22 PM
No, that would be a miracle. And miracles don't happen.
11/16/2007 9:44:35 PM
Yes, it would.
Kind of like man forming from dirt.
11/16/2007 9:59:50 PM
Um, no, that's not quite right there, metherion.
Of course, don't let facts get in the way of your diatribe. Do carry on with your mud pies.

@AnonymousAsshole: It's worse than we thought. That's not mud.

Close, but no cigar.

LOL That would indeed be abiogenesis. Specifically that would be "spontaneous generation", like how people used to think rotting meat created worms and such.
I suppose if there had been styrofoam peanuts back then, and raccoons had a habit of hiding in them and jumping out at people they might well have come to that conclusion.

I have the urge to compare metherion's brain with styrofoam packing peanuts.

Sie geben mir die kopfschmerzen.
(You are giving me a headache.)
11/16/2007 11:49:56 PM
Thanks for being so honest as to question your ignorance of Evolution.
11/17/2007 12:38:51 AM
So, for instance, if a bunch of styrofoam packing peanuts suddenly turned into racoons, that would be abiogenesis.
No. That would be science fiction.
11/17/2007 1:01:59 AM
oh you mean like, turning water into wine?
11/17/2007 1:35:12 AM
What would it be if a fundie turned into a normal rational person? A MIRACLE!
11/17/2007 1:44:52 AM
Is it 'backwards day?'
A heap of inanimate matter suddenly turning into a live vertebrate is what the Bible claims is true, not science.
11/17/2007 3:11:32 AM
My biological dictionary tells me this is true. However, it states that this was a theory, that involved things like all kinds of vermin being created from refuse. Including rats. Famous biologistm Louis Pasteur, however, tried this theory in sterile conditions and lo and behold. It doesn't work. Believe it or not! Biology has disproven this theory.

Hmmmmmmm, that might explain the outbreak of grey squirrels around South London.
11/17/2007 4:32:57 AM
I guess it could spontaneously happen that all of the essential bits needed for life could appear in a sea of packing peanuts. It might even be more likely than people ceasing from making straw man arguments.
11/17/2007 4:34:15 AM
Tired of building Strawmen of evolution, our band of fundie heros turn to building Strawmen of abiogensis.
When asked to comment on the situation Rocky the Flying Squirrel replied: "Again? That trick never works!"
Film at eleven.
11/17/2007 5:19:16 AM
No, that would be fucking scary. Or... really awesome...

One of very few Miracles the scientific community actually recognise as such =)
11/17/2007 6:47:18 AM
No, that's a really twisted form of Spontaneous Generation, an idea that was thoroughly debunked roughly a century ago.
Staggeringly epic fail.
