Darwin is right

you may think you are right but the origin of life is simply another mystery scientists are looking into. However, the study done by Miller and Urey does prove that amino acids and other organic compounds can be formed by the conditions that Earth was in during its early years. Your entire post is completely stupid though because no where does Darwin say that there is no God, in fact Darwin believed in God. All Darwin wanted to say was that species evolve over time, a statement that has been proven.

what came first?

There are three parts to cell replication. If I've got this right, the RNA duplicates itself become DNA which then Causes Protine sinthisis, Which then creates the RNA to duplicate again. so what came first? RNA, DNA, or Protine sinthisis.

    Beware of making this purchase

    When I ordered this book, it came up on my Nook as the book "Your Guide to Flatter Abs; Tips That Work." Yes, really. I had to call customer serivice and they were able to eventually send the The Orgin of Species to my Nook. Buyer Beware!

    If there were the slightest possibility of evolution, then why have we not found any link fossils? Lucy was not one of them! They found her "remains" spread over a mile apart! She was actually a pigmy chimp! And the nebraska man! Ha they found a tooth, thought it was one of our ancestors, and found out it was a pig tooth.... People have dug bones out of graves to make it look like a hu,an ancestors fossil...rediculous.

    Another PagePerfect ebook that is only readable on a nook device

    This rating is for the ebook format not the book or edition. I dont carry my nook eveywhere. I use the nook app on my phone and tablet the most (nook stays on nightstand) and because the PagePerfect format is for the Nook itself, I cant read this ebook on those devices!

    This edition of Darwins's book is the best in my opinion. The illustrations are fantastic and it has lots of historical references. I own the paperback version and it is well worn and annotated. Buy this edition....just not this ebook version. Kindle's version is clean and readble across devices (apps).
