Evolution does not say life evolved from rocks. It says nothing on the matter of the origin of life. At all. Period. You might wish it to, but it doesn't. Evolution does say that all life descended from a common ancestor. Maybe that's where you are becoming confused, though I'm at a loss to understand how any person with even a passing hint of rationality could confuse "common ancestor" with "rock."

BTW, none of the half dozen or so theories competing in the field of biogenesis mention life coming from rocks. The Bible says man was formed from clay. Maybe that's where you heard this.

Darwin said no more than this: "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."

Source: The Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin. (Chapter 14, last paragraph.)

Then if God created life, how come you evolutionists strongly deny that He created man and are constantly trying to prove (unsuccessfully I might add) that He did not create man? Answer that one, but of course you will not, you will just hurl more insults as usual.
