But, talking about abiogeneisis, we've found a predecessor to DNA that would be simpler, but be able to form easier. It's called TNA. No, not T&A, TNA.

T&A is something WHOLLY different.

That's why I said it wasn't T&A! Angry

No, like others pointed out, fundamentalists would ignore, misrepresent or somehow discount it as just another part of the global scientific conspiracy against their god(s), and liberal believers would say that is the way their god(s) chose to get life started. Heads they win, tails they don't lose... Dodgy

Or they'd just compartmentalize the way scientifically literate believers already do regarding contradictions between holy books and science.

Also, even after figuring out abiogenesis, there will still be the question of why there is something rather than nothing. What triggered the big bang? We don't know, so believers will maintain that it must have been caused by their preferred "magical, anthropomorphic immortal."*

While it's not the same thing, I'm also fairly certain T&A is the reason most of exist. Thumbsup

Nope. I'm a sitting example contrary to your example.

Yeeeeeeah, no. Drinking Beverage

You keep saying it, but it is just part of your delusion.

Yeah, because T&A leads to biogenesis. Yes

But to answer your question ... if you think so, you underestimate the delusional, and the abilities of even very intelligent people to compartmentalize their cognitive dissonances.





When I have time I'm going to watch this as it sounds interesting. But Jesus H Christ, why the hell can't scientists learn how to dress themselves. Did he ever look at himself in a mirror at any point in the day? His clothes are hanging off his body.

I mean, look at him. v v v v





Except for Neil Degrasse Tyson and a couple of others, most scientists have a problem using the media to the best advantage and communicating effectively to the average American and when you dress like a shlump it really doesn't help things.

Rant over.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Never heard of TNA...

Just because YOU believe in fairies doesn't mean anybody else should.
