- The first life was far to complex to have simply put itself together.
- Life came into existence very quickly, after liquid water was formed.
- There is no evidence of a primordial soup, as all carbonaceous materials in the earth’s crust are postbiotic.
The second theory that we are presented with is panspermia, the idea that life originated on another planet, and then was transferred to earth via meteorite. Again, this is a dead end because…
- No living organism could survive such a trip.
- No sugars can be found on meteorites, which are a basic necessity for life.
- Even in the unlikely scenario that this could take place, the origin of life on that planet needs to be explained.
These are a few of the dead ends that naturalistic origin-of-life theories run into.
Now having watched Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, I have been introduced to two new theories.
1.) Life’s basic building blocks formed on “crystals” and remained until there were enough to produce a cell. (Will some atheist please explain this in further detail?)
2.) A modification of panspermia, suggesting that highly evolved being from another planet seeded earth with early life.
The second theory was presented by none other than Richard Dawkins. Who would have thought that Dawkins was a proponent of intelligent design after all?
