    Evolution might not be true after all.


    If the organic compounds were formed somehow in a primitive atmosphere they would be racemic. And that would present some major problems in polymerization of complex organic compounds such as large proteins, RNA, DNA. A wrong handed amino acid would cause the stopping of the polymerization of the more complex compound and effectively kill the process.

    the origin of life is not the same as evolution
    evolution is process that can be observed in the here-and-now

    so even if you debunk one theory about the origin of life (something i doubt you've actually done) you haven't debunked evolution

    Finding correct information is, very much, still a work in progress. Although, several aspects of the current "evolution theory" have been proven as fact. No one can deny simple adaptations to environments, but, I don't believe it even tries to find the origin, or even all the missing links. There are certain aspects of other theories that also have questionable evidence.

    My opinion is, that there are parts to each theory that are correct. My favorite theory would be "Panspermia", and that would include most of the present "Theory of Evolution". Except, I believe all life is much older than most currently believe [lost histories through catastrophes].

    You'd better have more than that!

    First, welcome to the forum.

    That said, your post is painful to read because of the ignorance it conveys. The theory of evolution is ... a theory of evolution. Notice that it is not a theory of creation. Darwin's tome was titled On the Origin of Species, not On the Origin of Life.

    There are many hypotheses of how life began, but those are separate from the theory of how that life subsequently evolved. Do not confuse the two.
    Krebs and Cogito Ergo Sum like this.

    Is this a new creationist tactic? Kind of like another word they hijacked and they can't wait to use. "Check mate, ATHEISTS!".
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    The origin of life is still a mystery. Some believes all life arises from a primordial soup. I personally thinks all our compounds came from outerspace.

    That said, what you presented debunk nothing

    I think you're addressing abiogenesis, not evolution (which is a totally different matter).

    This thread was a post-and-run.

    The opening post is lifted, without acknowledgement, from this website: http://www.evanwiggs.com/articles/reasons.html#Reason3

    As pyoko says, this is a post-and-run item. Secondly, it breaches forum rules by posting material without acknowledgement. Thirdly it is rubbish, displaying deep ignorance of biology. On the basis of 'three strikes and you are out' the thread is locked. As always appeals to the mod/admin team by pm may lead to re-opening if a good case is made.
