Off topic
There is a whole forum available for "Origin of Life" topics. Please take the discussion there.

than it presupposes a purely naturalistic cause, so the question becomes a moot point.

No it does not presuppose any cause for the origin of life.

In fact, Darwin himself made this statement:

There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.

It seems to me that "breathed" allows for the Christian perspective but is ambiguous enough to allow for others.

That is about all the Darwin had to say on the origin of life. And evolutionary biology says nothing more while it is discussing the evolution of living things.

As for micro evolution and other, that too is OFF TOPIC!

For that discussion you could try any one of a number of threads:
'Micro' evolution vs 'macro' evolution
Information and Biology
Explain this to me please. Talk.origin article on Micro and Macro
Always talking about micro-evolution?

I suggest that the first thing you do is define micro evolution. (there is a little used biological definition that is about evolutionary changes below the level of species - is that what you mean? -- DO NOT GIVE ANSWER HERE -- add it to the first thread in that list).
