The separation of Biological evolution and Abiogenesis
Evolutionists will commonly argue that creationists indulge in a mistake in thinking when they conflate biological evolution with abiogenesis.
However, this whole issue is actually an example of passing-the-book, through a subtle fallacy called Begging-The-Question.
It is actually an implication of biological evolution, that if biological evolution happened, you would need to start out with some form of simple organism, for the alleged evolution to act upon.
Therefore, to ask evolutionists for their theory to explain how this is possible, is actually a sound request.
To solve this evolutionary stumbling block, scientists have separated the two topics, in a subtle way, so that people are tricked into believing that abiogenesis is a separate matter, rather than being the love-child of evolution. The fact is, biological evolution gave birth to abiogenesis and then gave up abiogenesis, for adoption.
Imagine a government were in office, and to avoid taking the blame they said, "we are in this mess now because of the previous government, as we inherited this mess, therefore we had to take these drastic measures we are now taking".
As you can see, it can be hard to spot the mistake in their argument. The mistake is that they have secretly assumed that their policy was correct, by blaming the previous governmental body. It is a sleight of hand, as in reality, another policy might have prevented the present mess.
CONCLUSION: Since biological evolution directly implies the problem of an abiogenesis, it is answerable for it, as without biological evolution, nobody would have to deal with an abiogenesis, therefore an abiogenesis is only a result of an assumption that biological evolution happened. It's circular, to prove bio you assume abio, to prove abio you assume bio. And round and round it goes, therefore nobody has to keep the ball, they just throw it to eachother. What is the ball, Watson? The ball is immense design-complexity. It can't be answered for, abiogenesis woefully fails, and biological evolution passes the problem back to abiogenesis.
In order to biologically evolve, you need an abiogenesis of a first form, an ultimate ancestor.
In order to have an abiogenesis, you need a biological evolution.(because it is only invoked because of evolution, obviously a creation-model doesn't require it)
ERGO you need abiogenesis in order for biological evolution to be true, and you need biological evolution in order for abiogenesis to be true.
The only point of abiogenesis is to have a first lump of clay for evolution to work on. Without evolution, there isn't a need for abiogenesis because then organisms would be explained as coming into being fully formed and complex. So the circularity of the syllogism is unavoidable.
One thing is clear, abiogenesis is a monstrously absurd belief that is only granted on evolution's behalf, and everyone knows it, evos and creos alike. Think about it, even if you have compelling evidence of evolution, it couldn't have happened because abiogenesis clearly didn't. So you can see WHY evolutionists want to disassociate themselves from the abiogenesis-belief system, otherwise they have to admit that evolution is at least partially, a belief-system.
Clever evolutionists will protest against the premise that you need evolution to be true in order to have an abiogenesis, but if they are intellectually honest, they will concede that abiogenesis is only an implication of evolution. Darwin's warm pond that created a protein, is an excuse for his theory, because there is no reality to an ultimate ancestor, don't tell me that trees, fleas, peas and hairy knees are ultimately descended from an ancestor, without proving it!
