I see where you are coming from, being the Linguistic Moderator, and agree that according to the exact definition of the words "scientific theory" it entails having evidence to show validity beyond a reasonable doubt. And obviously it also appears you do agree with the process. Summing up my argument, again I must say, when one has no other choice to Abiogenesis at its most fundamental level, then isn't it logical to conclude it to be correct/factual/real? Much as we logically assume the Universe on the whole to be homogenous and Isotropic, from a reasonable large sample size of 96 billion L/years diameter. The homogenity and Isotropy are not true scientific theories either on that score. Yes, I agree some "faith" [as you describe] is appropriate.....reasonable faith based on long time experiences etc. Still on what we know today, Abiogenesis appears to be the only reasonable logical conclusion to arrive at. As someone who is reasonably sloppy with his language, it's rather interesting to cross swords with the Linguistic Moderator, I must say. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
