There's a reason I chose to tackle the subject this way, which would be clearer if/when anyone here ventures to give some specific ideas.

Ideas are like underground labyrinths: the entrances may be few and obscure, but inside there are thousands of interlocking passages, meeting from time to time in glorious halls of light and color. One good idea can take decades to explore and evaluate.

Yet on this board you reject out-of-hand every single part of every single idea from the scientific theories of life. You haven't even stepped into the first passageway, and there you are sitting like a stubborn brat, grimacing and crying out for details.

They are all around you, in books, articles, encyclopedias, diagrams, museums, laboratories, and yes, even online blogs and discussion boards. You are stuck at the very edge of knowledge, throwing cowardly tantrums and insulting everyone who tries to help. What kind of behavior is this?

The details lie within the labyrinth. You need to screw up some courage and start exploring.
