"I wasn't there so I do not know the exact mechanism of how it happened. I assume it was a trial and error process."

Can you say that? If I said that I would be called un-scientific and other things.

"Do you think that the structure of the eye is the only way that it could have happened? Why is it so hard to believe that our eyes are used to funnel in radiation from the sun to be processed by our brain. Our eyes are evolved to our environment. Are they perfect? No. Could they be better? Yes. Why would a creator create something less than perfect if given the opportunity. Are you suggesting God is doing things "half-assed". Why is there blindness? Why don't we all have 20/20 vision? God's will, right."

The creator did not create anything imperfect.
At creation, our eyes were 20\20. Blindness and non-perfect vision is a loss of information throughout the ages. And you didn't answer about the ear.

"You know nothing about soil formation do you? Do you even know what a pioneer species is? It is a botanical term for a species of plant (normally bryophytes) that are capable of living on solid surfaces and breaking them down. Mosses are good at this. They created most of the soil, such that is found on islands, in a process called primary succession. Maybe you would have heard about it if you would look at nature once in a while or pick up a textbook."

I agree mostly with this. Like I said, these are not my questions.

"This is just flat out ridiculous. Are you serious? Have you ever heard of a process called photosynthesis? How about chemosynthesis? These are called autotrophic organisms and they do not rely on the energy from other organisms to survive feed. Those are called heterotrophic organisms - basic ecology here."

Fine, but you did not answer how the first cell arose.

12. Which came first, DNA or the proteins needed by DNA --- which can only be produced by DNA? --- Seems to me, the only Scientific answer is that it all had to be Created at the same time! Please explain.

"This is a question that is still trying to be figured out!! Does that mean we throw away all of science as we know it. Just because we ran into a wall in our knowledge. I don't think the answer is just, "well, we don't know so it must have been a God". Science looks and needs more."

It seems if I can not come up with an answer, that it shows I am an ignorant person who doesn't
care about science. But if you don't have an answer, it doesn't seem to matter. You just say, 'well, we don't know yet, but it must be true, so we will keep looking.' This shows a pre-bias. I have one also. KC2GWX 73's
