    Lol, as long as the definition of God is just as ambiguous.

    Of course it's ambiguous. Man can't limit God to their scriptures. But abiogenesis is only the mechanism, incredible though the mechanism is.

    The universe has a spiritual origin.

    It's nice to be told to stay at home. It takes away all the need to think and make our own decisions. It makes us all the same. Can't go there. Can't do that. By order.

    Man can't limit science to their scriptures.

    Of course I know that. There are people who call down terrible curses and punishments upon unbelievers who do not adhere to their own book. There are people who think they have their own God club.

    It's easy: wear the uniform, follow orders, march in step, repeat the words -- exclude those who do not believe the precise details of what you believe.

    But there are also very many people who believe in God who know they are allowed to ask questions, and who accept that science makes nonsense of many scriptural passages.

    However abiogenesis only demonstrates the mechanism. It does nothing to disprove God. Nor does the big bang. And what I'm saying is that the Bible, at least, does not dispute that the universe came into existence in a single instant from nothing, and then developed -- or that life came into existence from 'dust' or whatever anyone likes to call it?
