Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

There are two possible origins--1) Matter precedes life 2) Life precedes matter
Isn't one necessarily the parent of the other? Show me something living whose parent had not ever lived. If you can't do that, then show me something dead that can produce life in and of itself. Yet a seed can fall to the ground, die, and with nourishment, bring forth and sustain life from generation to generation because it's origin is with one with life.
Judge by what you see. You can see that flesh decays and is obliterated. Judge also by what you do not see. You do not see what happens to the spirit of a person. If you assume what you prefer when you don't see, God help you. But if you trust God, good for you!
I can see a stone. It is matter. It doesn't need life to exist.
I can see a life-form. It needs matter to exist. Without matter it doesn't exist.
I can only know what I can see. I can't see a spirit. There is no knowledge at all if such a thing like a spirit even exists. Only belief, but not knowing is no base for a discussion.
By the way, if you believe in god (the christian one) than you should believe that matter precedes life, since the bible says that your god created matter first and after that the life-forms. Didn't he even formed Adam from mud?
Well it's clear to me, some here would like to be technocrats, if they aren't already.
And there are far more who look at the title of this website, and read "LinuxQuestions.org". To me, that would indicate a website that is focused on LINUX. Not religion. All you're doing is trolling with these threads, and your logic appears very disjointed, as others have noted as well.
Want to talk religion? Do everyone a favor...visit a web forum that focuses on it. Go to a church somewhere, and 'testify'. Get a soapbox, go stand in the park, and preach to the masses. But this isn't the place for it, in my opinion.
