Not really.

Yes, really.

"I don't bother thinking about this, I just trust the "authorities" that it all worked out somehow"

Condescending, and not unlike the "have you stopped beating your wife" question.

Last option: explain your proposed mechanism for the first self-replicating life form.

I'm a physicist/engineer. I have no "proposed mechanism". Not my field. So I couldn't choose that one either.

As Loren said, if you want to have a discussion, great. But this poll, with the options presented, isn't the way to do it. I only answered at all because you seemed to think people were afraid of the question, when in fact it was not answerable (at least by me) in the form presented. I suspect others felt the same.
