What is true with telescopes is also true with microscopes. It's more red apple vs. green apple than it is apples and oranges. There is a great deal of scientific information related to establishing conditions that would favor abiogenesis.I agree about Ptolemy and Galileo but again, mixing apples and oranges. Galileo documented the small lights moving around Jupiter like his observations of Venus using his telescope. Others followed up and observed those same lights moving around Jupiter and Venus phases as well. Who has observed and documented abiogenesis at work in tidal locations today? And I add, abiogenesis at work undersea too. That is my problem when using Ptolemy and Galileo astronomical observations as a good parallel to abiogenesis observations.
I'm not, however, a microbiologist that can lay out the key evidence for one view over another, though I have seen one recent video that was very impressive in detail favoring the undersea (hot vents) location and noting the problems with the tidal area viewpoints. I did mention a few points earlier in this thread, IIRC.
