RAZD I got a couple of questions.
|In the natural sciences, abiogenesis, or origin of life, is the study of how life on Earth emerged from inanimate organic and inorganic molecules.|
Talk Origins says:
|biogenesis is the field of science dedicated to studying how life might have arisen for the first time on the primordial young Earth. |
Question 1. Is these correct?
That abiogenesis is a study of how life might have begun on planet Earth.
We can also include a supernatural hypothesis: if life only comes from life, and life on earth was created by some supernatual entity, then - logically - that entity itself is life, and we have the question of where that life came from.
Question 2. What would the study of abiogenesis have to do with life outside of the planet Earth?
There would have to be another hypothesis to cover that subject as you mentioned.
Question 3. Are you suggesting that hypothesis be a part of the standard Theory as it is referred to by Talk Origins in the following quote? Where they are attacking Wells.
|Why doesn't he quote Kral et al. (1998), who write,|
The standard theory for the origin of life postulates that life arose from an abiotically produced soup of organic material
Question 4. Has the Abiogenesis hypothesis reached the point it can be called the standard theory?
Anything that has to do with life starting by some supernatural entity would have to be faith based as there is no way to prove one way or the other it happened that way.
Anything that had to do with life coming from another planet would have to be faith based as it is impossible to prove. Some would say what if we found life on another planet would that not be proof. It would be proof there was life on another planet but not that life on earth came from another planet.
Please correct me where my thinking is wrong.
"John 5:39 (KJS) Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."
