Agreed. I have nothing against Darwin's theory. All I wanted was a convincing theory of abiogenesis.

Nice answer. Thanks a lot. Just one thing, you said the high contrast between the black lines and the mostly white background causes your perception to adjust so it doesn't easily see the mid tones Does this phenomenon have a specific name? Can you provide references?

@RichardSmith Can you give examples other than DNA or RNA? I don't think that such complex molecules originally existed in the primitive earth's atmosphere.

@RichardSmith We can demonstrate that it could easily happen that way Can you give some examples?

Yes, you are right. I am asking about a theory of "abiogenesis". But I do think that its related to Darwin's theory because it assumes that an organism with the required qualities existed. Isn't Darwin's theory based on an unproven assumption? Can you clarify?
