*Spontaneous Generation & The Evolutionary theory
         The beginnings of the evolutionist theory began with "spontaneous
generation." This was first purposed when raw meat was left, say a
week or so, it would then "magically" begin to show the "spontaneous
generation"(abiogenesis) of life, via small maggots.
        This is still the root of the evolutionary theory today. Except
now, they have exchanged meat for molecules. Here is an example text
from my current microbiology book "Biologist believe that life arose on
earth about 4 billion years ago in the form of simple organism much like
the prokaryotic[2] organisms of today, however fossil evidence suggests
that eukaryotic[3] organism arose only about 1 billion years ago." [1]
Basically, this states that it took 3 billion years just for a cell to
evolve into one with a nucleus(eukaryote). And it took ONLY 1 billion
years to go from a eukaryote[ cell w/ nucleus ] to a modern humanoid.
Quite illogical.
*Where infinity begins?
        It has been said that if a Creator exists, than who created the
Creator?  We are forgeting that the Creator is infinite, therefore
to ask who created God? It the same as to purpose the question:
When did infinity begin? This is a paradox.
