Common Descent From What? Life or Non-life?

Common Descent From What? Life or Non-life?

Darwin cheerleaders say that all life has a single common ancestor.

  • Is this "single common ancestor" itself, life? If so, then is it its own ancestor? An ancestor of all life that is its own ancestor?
  • Is this "single common ancestor" non-life? How could any but hopelessly degenerate fools say that non-life is an ancestor of life?

Adam.

Next Question??

Did you even read my OP?

Do you mean to tell me that ALL LIFE has Adam for a single, common ancestor? Are you trying to tell me that your neighbor's dog, and your other neighbor's cat, are descendants of Adam?

I do not even know what (if any) question you imagine you are answering by saying, "Adam."

Adam is not even ancestor to all human life, since all human life includes him, and he is not an ancestor to himself--in fact, Adam was directly created by God, and so, is ancestor-less; nor is he an ancestor to Eve, his wife.

Nope - just human life. The creation summary indicates when other types of life came along (although the term "CREATE" (Bara) is used sparingly, as though much of what was brought forth may have had pre-existence (The Gap Theory again). We have no idea what God did on earth in the period before Gen 1:2.

So you just posted in this thread to beg for attention to something irrelevant to this thread.

In other words, everything you've posted in this thread, so far, is entirely irrelevant to this thread.

By the way, that's a nonsensical phrase: "the period before Gen 1:2"

Genesis 1:2 is not a period; it's a Bible verse. So, no period is "before Gen 1:2". Rather, a Bible verse is "before Gen 1:2", namely, Genesis 1:1.

The Bible doesn't say in chronological terms. Only the order.
That is SOOOOO funny. What, exactly, do you think that "chronological" means?

Adam, and then Adam was diminished by that which God extracted to make Eve.
Now you're using unBiblical terms...

Show us from the scripture where "Adam was diminished by that which God extracted to make Eve".

AND... what does that have to do with the topic?

Bob can't be serious. I would hope, for his sake, he's merely ribbing us when he says things like that.

God created all life forms with a genetic code that guarantees that like will always reproduce like just as the Bible says.
