Chemical Evolution: Based on (Blind) Faith Not Fact

As the non-creationist information theorist Hubert Yockey observed over 20 years ago (and he has not revised his opinion since):

Research on the origin of life seems to be unique in that the conclusion has already been authoritatively accepted . . . . What remains to be done is to find the scenarios which describe the detailed mechanisms and processes by which this happened.

One must conclude that, contrary to the established and current wisdom a scenario describing the genesis of life on earth by chance and natural causes which can be accepted on the basis of fact and not faith has not yet been written.
