    Hi!

    I have a simple question.

    Can anyone explain to me -logically & scientifically- the statement of regarding the creation of everything to evolution, even though evolution is process itself.

    Regards,

    Well, no, because evolution does not describe the creation of everything. It just explains how life changes and adapts to its environment, creating new phenotypes in the process. It doesn't explain (for example) abiogenesis or the formation of the Earth or anything.

    Yeah, As where inanimate matter became animate, wasn't caused by evolution. It was simply made with geothermal/biochemical/elektrochemical/nuclear effects.

    Short lipids can be occasionally created (elektrochemical reaction with methane), same with amino acids (biochemical reaction/geothermal reaction with nitrogen oxide and lipids). Out of these amino acids, all sorts of small combinations of proteins can form, and also nucleotides (genetic information). Now we just need enough time for all these components to become something that can replicate itself.
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    Science is a process that carefully limits itself to what can be discribed with precision. Take a look at your "simple question" and rewrite it in a precise way, that is, with regard to one specific life form, for a start. Evolution only applies to life forms, so leave out anything about pre life chemistry, star or planet formation or the formation of the universe.

    Evolution wasn't 'created' for purposeful reasons, but you would have to look into ABIOGENESIS about the origin of living organisms, which is a field that chemistry is mostly responsible for. As 'Sealeaf' implied, it is not at all a simple question and there isn't a simple answer.

    Actually, it has created itself with the purpose of recreating itself. It's purpose was the purpose of its purpose. Speaking of paradoxes. There is a simple answer however. Because only life can recreate itself, it was inevitable.

    We have reached an extraordinary point in the history of science, for some physicists believe they are now on the verge of having a single theory that will unite all of their science under one mathematical umbrella. In particular this theory would unify the two great bastions of twentieth century physics - the general theory of relativity and quantum theory. Since general relativity describes the large scale, or cosmological, structure of the universe, and quantum theory describes the microscopic, or subatomic, structures, the unification of these theories would explain both the very big and the very small. This theory is often referred to as a "theory of everything".

    In particular this theory would unify our understanding of all the fundamental physical forces in our universe. There are four such forces that physicists know of: gravity (which keeps planets revolving around their suns, and is responsible for the formation of stars and galaxies), the electromagnetic force (which is responsible for light, heat, electricity, and magnetism; and which is also responsible for holding atoms together), the weak nuclear force (which acts inside atomic nuclei, and is responsible for a certain kind of radioactive decay), and the strong nuclear force (which holds together the protons and neutrons in atomic nuclei, and is therefore crucial to the stability of matter). At the moment, physicists have separate theories for each of these forces, but they would like one unified theory of all four. That goal has partly been realized in that they now have a theory which unifies two of these forces - the electromagnetic and weak forces - but unifying all four is proving to be extremely difficult. Nonetheless, most TOE physicists are confident this goal will be realized in the next few decades.
