100 Atheists believe that non-life produces life
Believer says: To be an atheist, you have to believe that non-life produces life.
But skeptic says: Well, it isn’t hard to believe that non-life might have produced life in the distant past. After all, exactly what is life that non-life couldn’t have given it a kick-start?
Science can’t explain the origin of life yet, though. It only explains that the atmosphere of the “young” earth was different from today. Current-day theists and non-theists speculate from there, regarding abiogenesis, the origin of life on Earth.
Recap: It could be possible although it's not yet proven that non-life produced life on the primordial earth. Nobody knows yet.
