Response to mr blur (Reply #39)

40. Why?

Because while the OP (for some reason - must be a slow news day) feels it is necessary to belittle those who hold extraordinary beliefs, I thought it apropos to point out a belief that is even more extraordinary - the unproven idea that life came from goo.

In the absence of such proof, I'm (yes) happy to accept the less fantastical idea that life came about by an act of conscious volition.

btw - when you say "impossible", I think what you mean is "not understood". I could say that life coming from goo is impossible - to which you might reply "Aha! that is only because we do not yet understand - but it happened!"

Ok, but imo, you've got the higher hurdle to overcome in terms of proof. IOW, it makes more sense that something extremely complex (life) came about - not by accident or chance, but by an act of will.
