Oh boy I lub maymays xdddd

Didn't David sleep around with some women that were married? Lot had a drunken stupor with his two daughters. Solomon had 700 wives and concubines.
Religion and sex about as far apart as Ted Haggard and the male-on-male sex line.

David also had that woman's husband killed...

Anyway, do I think it's possible that God exists? Absolutely, anything is possible.

The thing is we are humans, we may never know the full answer to our existence, we can only speculate on the facts we have at hand currently. And that hand of facts leads towards evolution. If God did exist, he could've easily have created the universe, then just have taken a nap and let evolution run it's course.

Real shocker. That is, if you can bother yourself to open a book other than the Bible.

abiogenesis and evolution are two different areas of science. Right now abiogenesis is basically chemistry.

Bold: Not exactly, evolution of life could not occur if life did not form. They are connected theories.

Either way, and correct me if I'm wrong on any of this, the first life on earth were single-celled prokaryotes. The main source of life is genetic material. In prokaryotic organisms, genetic material comes in the form of RNA. RNA is used by prokaryotic cells using proteins which are produced by the ribosome. RNA is made up of guanine, adenine, uracil and cytosine, so the first life on earth would have occured when these nucleobases came together.

I'm probably wrong, but oh well :P

Also, I must tell a story about Ken Ham.
While at a Christian camp in Schroon Lake, New York, I met Ken Ham. During night mass he told us about how wrong evolution was, yadda yadda yadda. I shook his hand after said mass.
His handshake was weaker than dry spaghetti.

Back to the topic- I think an argument for wanting Natural Selection to be true is that, via sexual selection, men may one day evolve to have pricks around that size.

Darwinian evolution is the scientific explanation which has been tested. There is no evidence for creationist beliefs and/or Intelligent Design. Thus, the only answer in my view is that which has evidence.
