Response to Warren Stupidity (Reply #48)

50. Please note that I qualified the word "god". I termed it as such because

we are talking about belief & faith in some external "thing".

As you said it's unknown how RNA got started, but it is accepted (believed?) by many that it happened on it's own - naturally.

So where does "faith" come in? It is accepted as fact (faith?) by many that given enough Time, the right conditions eventually occur, and then, life happens.

And to be fair, Time has a sister - the deity Water. We never see a story about space exploration that doesn't extol the virtue of Water and her potential role in bringing forth life (c'mon, it's ok to chuckle...).

What is interesting to me is that the faith in Time & Water is absolute in many circles - and yet it is without proof.

A religion? no, not in the strict sense. But it is a belief "system"...
