Are we going to have some troll time now?
I'm staking a claim to the Standard Definition of Evolution (copyright pending). Nobody else has. It's mine.
Every time a creationist uses the term, i.e., abuses it, ka-ching!
Where reason fails, pain might work.

Please see Message 68.
Now you are at the point in your trollish arc where you claim answers were already answered, their challenges met.
If that is so, quote or briefly summarize your rebuttal. Otherwise you are taking up bandwidth that could contain actual meaning. Shall we now debate the progress of the debate? Soon you will tire of this and leave to troll something else you don't understand -- the opportunities are legion.
Why waste your time and ours?
Please see yourself out.

It is perfectly easy to conceive of a world where there were two origins of life
Science? can't find the beginning to exist of one lifeform, and you are wanting to suggest a second lifeform beginning to exist?
Why not, if it happened once? Your Bible posits thousands were magicked into existence.
In near-infinite space over near-infinite time (or fully, both) the universe has produced stars and planetary systems through the same processes everywhere we look. The universe is managing everything else perfectly well on its pwn without a god, so why not life? Why not many times?
My personal, wholly intuitive hunch, is that the universe tends to produce life as surely as it formed the galaxies. Further, I think life tends to evolve toward sentience and intelligence as naturally as apples fall to earth.
Now, that's my deep flash of intuition about things, fueled years ago by star-gazing and wine. It's a pretty thought, and perhaps a profound one.
But unlike you and your myth, I don't believe it.

I am in awe of her power. There is no other. She could fry our world with a gamma-ray burst. She throws mountains at us. We have seen a hundred different ways she kills entire star systems, planets, populations, people. She cannot feel. She cannot care. We are at the mercy of the most dispassionate, most violent, most creative master of all there is. Until her will be done with me I’ll eat her strawberries; I’ll drink her sweet wine. And I will be forever thankful for the experience. I am alive.
Amen.

It's funny how you almost feel violated somehow, when a movie diverges drastically from the book.
Bookmarks handed out at my local library say "Don't hold the movie against the book."

Anyway, any clues what he means in the top bit? Thanks, and good night!
He means he'll give up his bad faith self-contradictions when his hands mutate into talons. Or when his own progeny literally fly from the womb.
He wants to see natural selection produce a new species in a single birth event.
His parents likely would have preferred that, too.
