Phil it seems I'm not the only one who is constantly asking you to provide evidence of your claims...
Most every time I ask him to provide evidences, it gets side tracked with non-OP discussions, or I get accused of things I didn't (and don't do), or equivocational banter ensues. And they (his postings) swerve widely from the OPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s. For example, none of his posts in this thread concern the OP of this thread at all.
So, to get back on track:
Do evolutionists say life come from rocks? Did life form in rocks, absorbing minerals from the rocks to start life? Did life come from Mars, on rocks?http://www.newscient...-come-from.htmlhttp://originoflife....tals/index.htmlhttp://www.pbs.org/w...p/l_033_28.htmlhttp://www.geotimes....2/NN_rocks.htmlhttp://www.whatislif...sues-origin.htm
All of these theories/hypotheses/models have life coming from rocks. All of these theories/hypotheses/models come from evolutionists. So to answer the question; YES, some evolutionists believe life came from rocks (in one form or another).
Do evolutionists say life come from non life? Let me say firstly, that most Christian theistic evolutionists believe life cam from God. So I believe we can safely remove them from the list. Secondly, at the other end of the spectrum are the atheistic evolutionists. I believe, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that they believe life came from non-life, but will equivocate on the meaning of non life. But, logically, if they extend their reasoning out-and-out, they will one day have to admit that. http://rst.gsfc.nasa...Sect20/A12.html
