We really can't tell what the origin of life is. There is no diffintive (sic) proof of either theory, so why don't we live (sic) it at that?

That's the spirit!

You know, Reality, I do abiogenesis research and I can state, with absolute confidence, that we'll cook up life from raw materials within my lifetime.

We are this close to creating an artificial lifeform as it is (Venter's work with artificial genomes).

Creating life is just a technical problem. And if science is good with anything, it's technical problems.

As to the exploration of this planet, it might take a while till we get a probe there. Can you imagine the accruracy (sic) required to send the probe there?

No one is suggesting a probe anytime soon. But again, launching a probe is just a technical problem.

And to fix that problem will take a few years (sending the command to the probe to shift vourse (sic) heading).

You are assuming the probe would be dependent on our commands.
