No surprise here, either. Between the wise acres that are because they couldn't understand the subject matter on their best day and the religious idiots that would refuse to even if they could I did not expect much of a thread to develop.

I see the OP for this forum is not ridding it of the religious garbage any more.

The investigation into how this took place will be very interesting. Darwin disassemble creation to a degree in order to understand it. He came very close to figuring out what intelligent design really was. The same can be said of the SOUP...once we figure out the ingredients we can copy God and and eventually extract a microbe that did not exist from non-living matter....Go for it.
ah, the old irreducible complexity argument...how I missed thee!

Yes, if only we could break down the system into its base components then it will be fairly obvious that God is behind it, behind it all.

No matter that we we have successfully broken a many a system down, only to find no God there after all.

But I'm sure this system is different...this will finally be the one where God was involved!...said no scientist, ever.

And I came here hoping for more intellectual discourse, instead finding the petty reactionaries who niether understand nor have the mental capacity to care. Shame

Back to more interesting internet reading.

Fancy words. I noticed that in your immense intellectual capacity the most you could come up with is a link to a research paper that you have to either get through subscription or purchase for 24 hours.

Speaking of lack of intellectual discourse... Nice going Mr. Wizard.

Oh, and it's spelled neither.

Why should I bother when pretty much any information I need is free on the Internet. If you feel the need to spend money that's your choice.

...EXCEPT for the results of peer reviewed studies, which is what this falls under. Somehow the powers to be decided that this information is not free and you should pay to read it. Nevermind the research was most likely done through a grant using your tax dollars....you pay for it, but you don't get to read it. Nice, eh?
