Re: Is it Random?
Were the chemical reactions that bought about abiogenisis random processes or not? If not, why not?
Because random means not predictable, and chemical reactions are predictable. Na and Cl form salt every time.

Re: Death?
You do realize that bacteria die fairly easily, and are not immortal? Right?
Wrong. You're confusing immortal with invincible. Bacteria are immortal.

Re: Emergent proerties.....
Hi Drosophilla
Don't you just love it when people confuse the analogy for the argument.
How's this for a lovely emergent property?
We even get a stick that's one more degree away from having any inherent property that could cause its motion.
Then we have this phenomenon causing camcorder batteries to be drained; making them that much closer to going to a land fill where they're gnawed on by a mole which dies. What property of rotating sticks is poisonous to moles?
Emergent properties just keep on emerging.
