When considering how life began, there are only two options. Either life was created by an intelligent source (God) or it began by natural processes.
No mechanism by which non-living matter can randomly spark itself into life has ever been demonstrated. Information must come from a source of information.
To creationists, the incredible workings of the genetic code are not a mystery to be explained but instead a marvel to be understood as one of God’s most incredible designs. How such a coding system (even in a simpler form) could have arisen through random interaction is yet another leap of faith by evolutionists.
By assuming organic compounds ejected by stars could have fortified the primordial solar system, asteroids and meteorites, and of course earth with the building blocks of life, evolutionary scientists see such findings as a source to seed the process of molecules-to-man evolution.
Was life seeded on earth by intelligent alien beings from another planet?
In a quiet pond somewhere on early earth, the many complex chemicals necessary for life came together to produce the first living cell—or did they?
Is it possible for scientists to defy the law of abiogenesis and create life in a laboratory or test tube?
What mysterious quality makes a creature alive at one moment but is absent the instant the creature dies? The Bible answers the question, “What is life?”
Swedish meteorite said to have triggered mass destruction and opened the way for life’s post-Cambrian explosion.
“Flower of the sea” is said to contain an evolutionary link between plants and animals.
Trace elements tell a tale of critically low oxygen that nearly turned out the lights on the evolution of complex life.
Researchers calculate that life had to have begun so long ago earth did not yet exist.
From these discussions it should again become clear that all efforts to explain an origin of information depending on matter alone fail empirically.
Strelley Pool stromatolites strike another blow for early life.
The good of the one outweighs the good of the few and the many—the single-cell bottleneck that unleashes multicellular evolutionary potential(?)
Whether it’s mica sheets or meteorites (or both), evolutionists have come up with theory after theory—most untestable, all unproven—about how life on earth got started. Here’s the latest.
This paper examines this assumption and ﬁnds the evidence shows that the levels of salinity in seawater and human blood are markedly different.PDF Download
Evolutionists continue to speculate about where life began. The latest answer? Between sheets of the geological substance mica.
The “chirality problem” isn’t exactly one of the most prominent topics of debate when it comes to origins. But that doesn’t mean evolutionists have forgotten the problem it poses for an “accidental” origin of life.
The evolution of the genetic code remains one of the most speculative, mysterious vignettes in the grand tale of evolution. On that subject, have evolutionary researchers made headway, or do they just reinforce the creationist’s perspective?
LUCA: I am your father?
Maybe it was primordial soup. Maybe it was crystals. Maybe it was volcanic pools. Maybe it was lumps of ice. Maybe . . . .
Shortly after Darwin published On the Origin of Species, Pasteur began to challenge the idea of spontaneous generation.PDF Download
The search for evidence for abiogenesis has uncovered a new “candidate”: DNA in liquid crystal phases that “self-orients” and stacks into columns.
Underwater volcanoes spewing oxygen-devouring gases delay the evolutionary timetable, according to a new study.
A response to an article detainling how life could have originated from deep-dea "chimneys."
Stanley Miller, partial namesake of the Miller–Urey experiment, has passed on at the age of 77.
The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Reporter recently reported the latest findings on the origin of DNA, which in essence is a search for the origin of life.
“The appearance of life on Earth seems to face so many obstacles . . . that scientists often feel forced to regard it as almost miraculous.”
Mitochondria are sometimes called the “workhorse” of the cell, as they are responsible for producing the majority of the energy molecule ATP.
Many scientists are desperate to find evidence to support their theory or to make the current evidence fit their theory rather than admitting their theory is wrong.
It is now recognized that this set of experiments has done more to show that abiogenesis on Earth is not possible than to indicate how it could be possible.
One of the most fundamental axioms of biology is that all life comes from pre-existing life. Still, until the later part of the 19th century, life was believed to arise by spontaneous generation.
Living bacteria and dormant stages of bacteria known as spores, have been found in many sediments with reported ages of up to hundreds of million years.
In the mid 1800’s, when Charles Darwin was proposing his theory of evolution, two other scientists were disproving a commonly held notion.
The claim that, with time, anything is possible, including the creation and perpetuation of life, is not based on any scientific principle. Rather, the opposite is true.
‘Even on Earth the origin of life is a stubbornly enduring mystery.’
Such a dramatic extension back in time for the eukaryotic cell raises even more questions for evolutionists regarding the evolution of life.
Life only comes from life. This was the law established by the Author of Life, Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life—Jesus Christ.
Profound advances in the fields of molecular biology in recent years have enabled the elucidation of cell structure and function in detail previously unimaginable.
Have you ever squashed a mosquito? Interestingly, the squashing of a mosquito may help us understand what makes life possible and what makes spontaneous generation of a living thing impossible.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. We focus on providing answers to questions about the Bible—particularly the book of Genesis—regarding key issues such as creation, evolution, science, and the age of the earth.
