Most debates between an evolutionists and someone who supports intelligent design usually focus on the development and advancement of life on earth. Rarely is the argument centered around the origin of the first life on Earth.
It is obvious as why that is the case – evolutionists do not want to discuss that area, by far their weakest.
How is it that life arose from non-life? That is the question that evolutionists must answer. Without an answer for that question, it is useless to discuss fossils, Darwin, missing links or anything else. The debate is already lost.
If one can find no naturalistic way for life to develop from non-life, then you are forced to allow for supernatural in the creation of life. Am I wrong?
