Time for the Abiogenesis Challenge:

Question 1: What is abiogenesis?  
Anwer: Abiogenesis is the idea that long ago, very simple life forms spontaneously
appeared through chemical reactions.

Question 2: If everything in life is made of chemicals, in the right conditions
can living things come from nonliving chemicals?  
Answer: No.

Question 3: Can't scientists make cells from chemicals?
Answer: No.  

"...in the entire history of cytology [the study of cells], scientists have seen
cells produced in only one way: from other cells.  Never have chemicals or
any other nonliving substances produced cells. In fact, scientists cannot
even produce cells in the lab unless they have a living cell to start with.
Even the process of cloning starts with a living cell...if in the history of
cytology, scientists have only seen cells produced by living cells, why in
the world would some scientists believe that cells could have been
produced in a different way at some time in the past?"
--Exploring Creation with Biology (2005 ed.), pg163

Ask your local evolution scientist:
If you were produced by random evolution processes then certainly it would be easy
to ask the scientist who is telling you to believe in evolution to go produce a living
worm or a even a fly in his/her science lab...certainly the scientist can create the
same conditions (with enough money) and produce a living creature from chemicals.

God is the Ultimate Creator: Hebrews 11:3  says, "By faith we understand
that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was
not made out of what was visible."

Amazing Creator
We have an Amazing Creator who created you.  You are super special to Him.

Psalm 139:16 (NIV) says:
"Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be."

God created you for a special purpose!  

Want to grow your own underwater pets like the ones you find at
the toy store?

Supplies: Jar, brine shrimp eggs (sold at a pet store or amazon, yeast (food),
magnifying glass, and water.

Instructions: Fill a glass jar with water and let it sit overnight.  The next day sprinkle a
teaspoon of brine shrimp eggs into the jar of water.  Look closely at the water with
your magnifying glass...do you see any tiny shrimp swimming around?  If not check
again in a few hours.

Feed your water critters a little yeast (an amount similar to a drop of water) once a
day.  If the water gets too dirty then you are probably feeding them too much.

Explanation: God created animals and plants according to "their kinds."
