That doesn't seem necessary.

Besides, even if one were to think that, how would one know which God or Gods were involved?

No. I don't think there was a god at all.

Occam's razor votes "No"

No. I don't think that at all.

That argument is one used by people clutching at straws to use supernatural beings in the history of how life evolved.

Just face it, gods are a human construct used by those too weak-minded to accept that their life means nothing.

I don't know how the hell it started, but figuring out how the hell god started would just be a way bigger headache for me

he might have come from a singularity
12 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 8/22/09 - 2:59:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know what that even means
but if you're gonna say that, why not just say that life came from a singularity?

I don't know how the hell it started neither, but it was probably a bad idea from the beginning.

I dunno, it seems to be working out pretty well so far

occams razor?? Since the existence of a divine being can neither be proven nor disproven, occams razor doesn't even feature.

why? i don't see evidence as a major issue in deciding which is the simplest explanation

the most plausible theory i read was that about 6 billion years ago lightning struck some body of water with amoeba in it and that began life.

Amoeba are life.

Also, for the record, the solar system didn't exist back then; it's about 4.6 billion years old, with the Earth itself about 4.55 billion years old. Life on Earth may have originated 3.7 billion years ago (though obviously the exact time is very difficult to determine with a lot of certainty).

yes.
