I believe it stands for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling...

RE: Would Abiogenesis kill religion?
As I was heading towards in another thread... Most explanations for things in the bible is 'magic'.

The bible says God created the earth but it doesn't say how. He pretty much clicked his fingers and it appeared. No method is mentioned, no process or specifics.. So it doesn't matter what evidence or proof we have for abiogenesis, the lack of mentioning how God actually did it means that he'll fit nicely into the idea that he caused abiogenisis to happen.

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."*

Never heard of TNA...

TNA is Threose Nucleic Acid, it's essentially artificial DNA, but instead of having DNA's deoxyribose sugar backbone, TNA has a backbone comprised of threose sugars.
It works the same way as DNA in terms of storage of genetic material and base-pairing, and is apparently capable of evolving.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

That is amazing! How long since its discovery?

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

Unfortunately, I can't find an exact year for when TNA was first synthesised.

Bummer. Well, shouldn't be long till abiogenesis is discovered. No less than 5 years, no more than 100.

Well if you want to get really picky about details, abiogenesis has already been discovered.
How it happened is what is yet to be confirmed.
What we do know is that in the right conditions, molecules necessary for life as we know it can form through natural processes. We just need to be able to replicate a self-replicating, naturally formed molecule.

You had a quick wit to catch that slip. In my enthusiasm about topics, I can be a little imprecise at times, but I'm working on that.

It's not quick wit so much as some pseudo-OCD anal retentiveness thing I have, especially in terms of detail. The nigh-uncontrollable habit of correcting or adjusting people has earned me few friends, I can tell you.
