    So, a question for you: will your faith be impaired if ever they discover life existed on Mars?

    It's not a theory, lpast. Scientists can create life.

    And it get's to a point where that question of "where did life begin?" gets out of the realm of science.

    Science always existed, we just haven't always been around to be aware of it. Physics doesn't not exist because no one is around to observe it.

    It is not even opinion, it is a possibility, and one that is fully within the realm of natural causes. So just because we do not know does not mean that the answer is "god did it" when there are other perfectly rational explanations and possibilities as well.

    There is nothing wrong with saying "we do not know" the great thing about this is that when faced with that many will append this saying "We do not know... yet" and continue to explore for an answer. Filling in an assumed answer -especially a supernatural one - for "We do not know" gets us nowhere.

    This is honest, a rare thing today..
    Too many say they "know"..
    Well, IMO, they do not....nor do I!
    In my opinion, both life and the universal were not "created", but always were....no beginning, no end.....
    Man possesses love..."God" is absolute total love...
    We have "love", without it, evolution produces the Frankenstein Monster, not the beautiful things we have now.

    The trouble with religion is that it puts limits on things (man's thinking)...it tries to give an answer to man's question(life) when science should be doing this..
    We need to give science a lot more time.
