The thing is that graph portrays humanity expansion like unto bacteria in petri dish. People move in migratory patterns and stop when they find a place they like.

one thing is i really cant see how we can get life from non life. If this was possible, why dont we see it in nature today?, or is it happening without my knowledge?.

This has nothing to do with evolution. Evolution takes place when life is already present.

Think of the study of a plant growing in a pot: you are interested in how the plant grows, not whether the seed was put there by a person, passed in the droppings of an animal or blown there in the breeze.

This is how we conceptualise evolution, what happens once life got started. TOE makes makes no comment on the genesis of life.

It could be a natural process, it could be by a gods' will. TOE does not care.

about the same length of time that the written language has been her(sic)

Do you ever get tired of making baseless, wrong statements?

if evolution is not about the origin of life

1. why do so many evolutionists disbelieve in a God?

2. why do evolutionists laugh at intelligent design?

Or changing the subject?

Why do so many theists accept TOE?
