Life from Non-Life

Hall of Life—Origins of Life Exhibits

on November 23, 2015

The naturalistic worldview claims that life arose from non-living chemicals. However, from the Bible, we know that God is the giver of all life. He supernaturally created the original plant kinds on Day 3, the original sea and flying kinds on Day 5, and the original land animal kinds and people on Day 6. Since He finished His supernatural creative acts at the end of the sixth day, we would not expect to see life being created out of nothing today.

The idea that life can spontaneously generate from non-life goes back at least as far as the philosophers of ancient Greece.

In the nineteenth century, creation scientist Louis Pasteur (1822–1895) performed experiments which demonstrated conclusively that “spontaneous generation” (or abiogenesis) was a fallacious idea. He showed that life can only come from life (biogenesis). Despite the scientific evidence, those who accept the naturalistic worldview (evolution) continue to accept by blind faith that long ago, non-living chemicals turned into life.
