I For One Don't Believe It

I don't believe that inert matter can come alive all by itself. The equation, inert matter + time = life, is not true, in my opinion of course. Trying to turn inert matter into something living is what I call playing God. That's not to say I don't believe in evolution. It's taking place all around us. It's undeniable. It has been for quite some years. But turning somthing inert into something alive, I believe that requires Divine Intervention. Not a lot mind you. Just a spark will do it, evolution will take it from there. Authors seem to just jump over that point. Like yours. How did you get from inorganic to organic. "->" just like that. Or "given enough time" that's popular. My favorite, "Before you know it!". How did it go from inert to alive? Before you know it, of course! I don't by it. Nobody knows for sure how it came alive. Things don't become alive all by themselves. I believe our presence proves the existence of God. A few years back Pope John Paul II said, and I quote, "It makes no fundamental difference whether we were created by Evolution or Divine Creation, we were created in the image of God, that's what matters". Clear skies.
That's it;
BOB SAL
