The broader point, again, is that some virus-like "thing" could have evolved a metabloism-like capability if there was some advantage to it. That possibiliy is all that is needed for abiogenesis to happen.
Church people have been schooled in the ways to argue against the theological hypothesis, that God used evolution as his method of creating the diversity of life we see today. They think they do god a service by resisting and denigrating the Science Theory.
But they fail to acknowledge things like the clear Genesis statement which say God Spontaneous Generated first life, no real difference in the Abiogenesis of what Science espouses.
The Church people are at the cross road of either accepting that God created all life for one early spark which spread a virtual fire of different and complex species thereafter, or sticking to the rather dull insight that God meticulously, individually, and separately used an almost infinite number of Spontaneous Generations, one for every species on Earth, past and present.
I encourage the church people to realize that God is better than that. God would use a process like Evolution rather than the drawn out and ardulous individual Spontaneous Generations, one after another over seven long Eras of "days."
Panda: Your image only shows 6 Eras of "days". Also, the Phanerozoic can be split up into 3 eras: Cenozoic, Mesozoic, Paleozoic - like in your image. So why is Archean not split up into Neoarchean, Mesoarchean, Paleoarchean and Eoarchean also?
Hi Mr panda...
The "first day" of the seven was BEFORE the Earth had congealed into a ball shaped solid, and was merely a spinning accretion disk, void of shape and darkness was upon the flat face of the rotating conglumearation of huge rocks.
Though a quick google often misleads readers who see the CHRONOSTRATIGRAPHIC CLASSIFICATION which is one of the three typical charts that specify the geological rock layers, the actual six layers which separate the Time between cataclysmic events like meteoric extinctions numbers six GEOCHRONOGRAPHIC CLASSIFICATIONS.
Chronologic measurement: The geologic time scale provides a system of chronologic measurement relating stratigraphy to time that is used by geologists, paleontologists and other earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships between events that have occurred during the history of the Earth.
Your numerological arguments don't bear on the topic, so please stop raising them here. They also don't bear on the other topic where you raised them, the Size of the universe thread, so you shouldn't be raising them there, either.
No. The breakdown that merely lists one layer after the next is what that chart shows, making no distinction between what six major events which are used by scientist as the Geological Clock.
The Geological Clock is an application of the geology, and it measures six major events which separate piles of rocks from other piles of rocks.
The six events punctuate the rote listing of rock layers, some of which were massive extinction caused by large meteoric hits on Earth.
"Geologic time scale From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"This clock representation shows some of the major units of geological time and definitive events of Earth history.
The Hadean eon represents the time before fossil record of life on Earth; its upper boundary is now regarded as 4.0 Ga (billion years ago). Other subdivisions reflect the evolution of life; the Archean and Proterozoic are both eons, the Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic are eras of the Phanerozoic eon.
The geologic time scale is a system of chronological measurement that relates stratigraphy to time, and is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships between events that have occurred throughout Earth's history.
The table of geologic time spans presented here agrees with the dates and nomenclature set forth by the International Commission on Stratigraphy, and uses the standard color codes of the United States Geological Survey."
