It seems to me that the discussion is drifting off topic.

Pasteur's hypothesis was that all life arises from other life. As far as I know, this hypothesis has not been successfully challenged.

Re: Piece of cake
I don't know what Pasteur's belief's were on a creator but I don't think that's what he was addressing. More specifically then,

All life on earth arises from other life.

Re: Strike two
I see your point but I also think there is a connection and have a sneaking feeling that you're trying to avoid it so I'll phrase the question to you.

I propose that all life on earth begins from other life. Do you agree or disagree?

But I think that at some point in the past, life gradually emerged from chemicals so not all of the life for all of time began from other life.

This has probably been discussed other places and I may get my fingers slapped for going off topic but I'm new to the forum and just rummaging around these issues so .... What is the evidence you relied on for this belief?

As pointed out by others it is clear, whatever you believe, that this can not have held true for all time.

Yeah Canada. Go Leafs!! Agreed. All scientific theories are provisional but when there is a theory that has stood for 150 years, it does not seem logical to say that it may be wrong and so I'll support a different theory instead.

Thanks. If you don't mind me asking, which of the models listed do you think is correct and why?
