Why did the first cell divide? How could it have programmed itself to do that? Why would the first cell divide, why didn't it just live its life and then die? If there are actual, plausible scientific answers I am interested in hearing them.

Re: To RAZD
I appreciate the link to the Self-Replicating Molecules, I haven't looked at it yet, but I will, thank you.

Re: To RAZD
Okay, I went to the link you provided and I have to admit, I had to look up "self-polymerize" - this stuff is really slow reading for me. I'll have to look at it a few times before I am gonna get it. But I think the main gist is that we are talking about chemicals getting together, forming into a very basic cell-like structure, replicating and then picking and choosing this and that until they achieve life-form? The attached reading material is somewhat difficult as well and has a lot of "out of my league" stuff. I feel the need to ask if a life-form has been developed in a lab? or, is the current state of development still chemical compounds? No insult intended I just want to know!

To RAZD and Mr Jack
Well, I find that fascinating. It's actually very cool and I don't see why anyone is upset on either side of the fence, even though I have read the various "evolution versus creation" arguments. Maybe that fence needs to be taken down. Okay, I am gonna digest this and think up some more questions, I thank you much! And please note, I really don't have a problem if someone does get to the creating life point. Wouldn't that be a huge step! The scriptures do not say that God will not allow man to create life (nor that evolution doesn't happen) and with all that has happened so far who knows?

Edited by Drevmar, : Thoughts weren't done.
