The Creator is brilliant and subtle, indeed.

What do you think?

My guess would be a great big round rock.

What came before the things that came before life as we know it?

We live on Earth Mark II.. (Post-moon)

I was hoping this was some sort of actual physical evidence of life on Earth Mark I.
Evidently not.
I have not read or heard of any evidence of life prior to the collision that created our moon.

Any suggestions here?
We know that the Earth and Moon are estimated to be 4.5 billion years old.
How long did the Earth exist prior to that collision?
Anyone know?

I think God said it and then it happened... His way. Life has since continued to unfold according to His plan.

Before life emerged on earth, either a primitive kind of metabolism or an RNA-like duplicating machinery must have set the stage – so experts believe.

Hmmm that science sound a hell of lot like act of faith ie... they dont know but "believe" & "it must have"

It may be proven true some day but science should never be so smug to say they don't engage in acts of "faith" geting there

I also want to know if the Earth was ever 7000 miles in diameter.

It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it.

The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics (not theory but Law) alone refutes idle speculation about self assembling and replicating and ever increasing complexity whether living or not.

Without WORK (energy) to offset increasing disorder you have eventual disorder (increasing entropy), disassembly, decay, in short, breakdown.

All of the Dawkins fans and Dawkins fellow travelers have to abrogate a proven Law of the Universe as step one.

Once you ignore a Law any speculation becomes possible however impossible said speculation is rendered by violating the second Law of Thermodynamics.

Some people argue that science, and all human understanding, comes from the id. The id could have created many sciences to explain what needs to be explained. So in some ways science is a very human creation or construct.

I know very little of this view. It is hard to imagine many sciences all jostling for the truth. It is hard to imagine science or truth without an everyday language to support it. It is hard to imagine anything without a language. And language too, apparently, comes from the id.
