“Still, the nation is so broke that it can’t print its own currency. They still have rolling blackouts due to energy shortages. There’s still hunger to the point where people are killing dogs, cats, and pigeons for food. There’s still rampant looting since supermarkets are not regularly stocked. Toilet paper is now a luxury item. And hospitals are still in need of soap and basic medical supplies. Also, babies are still dying in hospitals due to energy shortages and inadequate care. …”

Nic Samojluk: Given the current world situation, what is your message for the worldwide Adventist Church, Pastor Wilson?
Ted Wilson: “Seventh-day Adventists are a prophetic movement with an urgent prophetic calling. We’re not just merely another denomination on the landscape of religious movements.

“Science is supposed to be about things that are observable. That is, science can probe only things that we can detect with our five senses. Science also must be repeatable. This means that when an experiment or observation is repeated, we get the same results. These restrictions on science have led to what we call the scientific method, the general rules that we follow in doing science. The scientific investigation of the origin of life presents us with at least two problems. First, since life began before people were around, we hardly can observe the process. Second, since the origin of life appears to have been a unique event, we hardly can repeat it. …”\
My Comment: Your option four, “Life was seeded from space.” Should be eliminated as a potential answer to the question posed in the title of the thread, “Is the Origin of Life a Scientific Question?” because it does not even attempt to explain the origin of life. It simply pushes the question from our planet to the rest of the universe.
Now, since you have already eliminated options one and two, “Life on earth arose spontaneously,” and “Life on earth has always existed,” then the only remaining alternative for the origin of life is the third one: “Life on earth came about through a supernatural act of creation by an intelligent Being.”

“How bad is inflation in Venezuela? The country’s disastrous dalliance with lefty-economic theories has not only led to hospitals lacking basic medical supplies, like soap, food, and electricity, but burgers that now cost $170. Need a place to stay in Venezuela (though I don’t know why you would visit in the first place)? No problem—it’ll only cost you $6,900 a night …”
“It is well-known that Clinton has long supported abortion on demand throughout pregnancy calling it not only a woman’s right, a human right and a ‘reproductive right’ but unabashedly proclaimed in testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee in April 2009 that “reproductive health includes access to abortion”. …
Laws and policies that ban, restrict, or regulate abortion and religious and cultural beliefs that value life from the moment of conception are all “barriers to progress” from the pro-abortion point of view.” …”
