Author Topic:   I seek proof of evolution

I ask this question with an open mind seeking answers.
Am I to believe a single cell’s component parts could be found in the same place at the same time on a planet in the right place, with a perfect sun and perfect moon in the right place, in a solar system in the right place, in a galaxy in the right place, with gravity the correct strength, with water and oxygen and carbon present, etcetera, and those component parts could accidentally assemble themselves in the correct sequence and order to make a functioning cell and then somehow life could be injected onto it? All by accident?
I need scientific repeatable proof that this happened or else I will believe in God and it will affect the ethical and moral decisions I make on a daily basis.
Thanks for your consideration.

Needs lots of work.
I think you need to either spend some time reading here, or reword your original post, cause as it stands there doesn't seem to be anything there to discuss.Firts the question you ask in your second paragraph seems to have everything backwards. Then in the third paragraph you jump to some question about GOD as though anything before had anything to do with wether or not there is a GOD or as though anything in the Theory of Evolution would determine whether or not someone believes in GOD.
Try editing your post then reply to me here and I will gladly take another look at it for you.

    Re: Needs lots of work.
    The statement about God is not a question. It simply says if someone can’t prove life came about by accident, I will then believe in God. If it can be proven that this happened, then there is no need for a creator. If it can’t and it comes down to faith in either direction, I will put my faith in a creator because the statistical probability of it all being an accident seems impossible.
    I'm not sure what you mean by backward. Everything had to be in place before a cell could exist.
    What proof is there that a cell is an accident? Don't we all have faith?
    Thanks.

    Re: Needs lots of work.
    This is not the place to debate you post and as an Admin we do not take part in the debates. We do try to help you get your post in some form where a discussion is possible. However you are beginning with assertions no one makes, such as life came about by accident. You mention statistical probability when no one has ever been able to show such a calculations and unless YOU are ready and able to actually support such an assertion, the point is moot. You mention all things being in place before the cell yet in the OP it is framed the otherway.
    Sorry, as it stands it is simply not promotable. I do encourage you to try rewriting it and see if we can come up with something worthwhile.
