A long time ago when earth was still cooling and forming, the planet was awash with rain thunder and lightning. The minerals being spewed from the earth's core, along with meteorites impacting the planet allowed for a large amount of ba<x>se materials know as raw elements to combine, mix, and join together. Every now and then this mixture of elements in water were struck by ligtning. The electric charge and heat caused the elements to form the first amino acids which are the building blocks of life. Repeat for a couple billion years. Life.<br />
For the specifics please take a look at the Miller Urey experiment that was conducted in the mid 1950s.
If you're going to just regurgitate the boring christian creation myth why even bother asking the question? Also I have science and millions of years of fossils and Proven, Testable theories. What evidence do you have? A warm fuzzy feeling in your heart?
you expect me to compress millions of years into one pithy statement here????
I'll defer to gnatfree. Sounds like s/he's got it covered.
It's SHE, and he's a creationist clod anyway.
Ah. sometimes I take questions at face value. Silly, I know.
