What are your thoughts on abiogenesis?

Outrageously unlikely to me.Especially the idea of spontaneous generation.
Even the modern ideas are pathetic.

People have asked why I believe in God.This is one of the biggest reasons why.

They are naturalistic guesses on how life could have begun without a Creator.These explanations are refuted by science itself."Naturalism is necessarily linked to abiogenesis, which is scientifically impossible."

Life has either had a natural origin(abiogenesis,which contradicts science) or a supernatural origin.
' The only way to create even the most basic building blocks of life is in non-natural, highly designed, and tightly controlled conditions. That, by itself, makes it reasonable to presume that life cannot begin without intelligent intervention.'

At the end of the day,belief conquers all.Anyone can believe anything,and that is their idea of the truth.Often people neglect research and simply go for any(supposedly)viable interpretation.

P.S-I'm not here to argue,just hear other people's thoughts on the matter.

You say that abiogenesis is "scientifically impossible", but you don't say why that should be so (incidentally, I'm not sure what the difference would be between 'impossible' and 'scientifically impossible')

You also say that abiogenesis contradicts science, but again you don't say why that should be so.

You say "The only way...", but you don't demonstrate why that is the only way.
[@46009,newjaninev2] Haha that's a long chain of research you'll have to do yourself.
[@46009,newjaninev2] It's evident,especially if you are a biology student.

My exact thoughts on abiogenesis are "I don't know what abiogenesis means" 😏

I don't have a problem with people believing in a god. What I do not like is any one religious doctrine being presented as the only truth.

In my mind "god" is everything that this universe consists of. Including you and me.

[@385840,Wraithorn] Fair enough, but most Christians would disagree and in some countries they form the majority.

Not here though, thank god!

[@661435,NakedExperiment] Oh I know very well that Christians would disagree. To them I am a heretic or pagan or atheist depending on their particular beliefs. My father is a pentecostal preacher. From his point of view I am virtually a Satanist.
It is the most likely explanation one which science will replicate eventually just like someone somewhere sometime even though it is illegal will make a human from scratch.

It is hard to understand but I think it was chemical, billions of years ago and probably occurred around heated water like a geothermal vent.

I don't see gods as any more likely than abiogenesis. If you say something was created by something else, you just get the whole "Well how did that creative force come about...". It doesn't answer anything.
