The conjunctions used to join independent clauses in compound sentences are coordinating conjunctions. The most common coordinating conjunctions are: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. ... The subordinating conjunction because is used to introduce an adverbial clause of cause or reason.

They were certainly there, for I saw them.

I think for is a subordinating conjunction.

It’s an alluring picture – catalytic RNAs appear by chance on the early Earth as molecular replicators that gradually evolve into complex molecules capable of encoding proteins, metabolic systems and ultimately DNA. But it’s almost certainly wrong. For even an RNA-based replication process needs energy: it can’t shelve metabolism until later. And although relatively simple self-copying ribozymes have been made, they typically work only if provided with just the right oligonucleotide components to work on.

"From" could be understandable, but not exactly synonymous.
"Compared to..." or "in contrast with..." would fit.

The combination of "different" and "versus" sounds odd to me.

He says the ship is 515 feet long, which matches the biblical account of being 300 cubits.

Researchers have scanned the ground using a method called electrical resistivity.

“If you shoot an electrical current below the ground and it hits a pocket of air, that has a different type of conductivity versus something like water or rock. So, the software can interpret the signals coming back and create a 3-D image.”

Question: Is it possible to replace versus with "from"?

Evolutionists and creationists have different views on the origin of sedimentary rock strata. Evolutionists, who uphold the uniformitarian doctrine of 19th-century geologists, suppose that sediments were deposited slowly over millions of years and then hardened into sedimentary rock. This means that soft sediments, however they accumulated, would surely have lithified (hardened into rock) over excessively long periods of time. However, some of these rocks seem to demonstrate the opposite—these layers were clearly deformed before they had time to lithify.

Question: Is however a conjunction or a relative adverb?
