No clue, but miracle expected shortly

Here’s an interesting article about biologists and chemists trying to figure out how life got started.  Spoiler warning: they don’t mention if God had anything to do with it.  The title says something about “new glimpses,” but the article merely details the old darkness.  They basically don’t know anything for sure about the subject.  The money quote from the article:

Chemists and biologists are thus pretty much on their own in figuring out how life started. For lack of fossil evidence, they have no guide as to when, where or how the first forms of life emerged.  [emphasis mine]

That’s about as plain as I’ve ever seen them speak about this subject.  Of course it’s physically impossible for fossilized evidence of “live” proto-chemistry to exist just by the nature of what a fossil is and what the chemistry would have been.  Bottom line, no evidence exists, nor could it exist.  Every person who has ever debated about this issue on either side should pause a moment to take in that statement because it would go a long way toward settling the question of which side is operating on blind faith.

Then check out the next step.

So the [scientsts] will figure life out only by reinventing it in the laboratory.

So the logic is: If scientists can invent self-replicating chemistry in the lab using “Process X,” then that proves life started eons ago by way of Process X.   This is a non sequitur the size of Jupiter.  And besides, how such a procedure would prove evolution is quite beyond me.  Even if a special brew of self-replicating chemicals could be invented at all (doubtful — read the article), the scientists would have succeeded in demonstrating only that lots and lots of intelligence, design, and carefully selected and screened steps are needed to create one speck of self-replicating chemistry. Getting the speck to evolve would be another neat trick.  And then after that, they’d still need to figure out the biochemical steps that lead to two living people arguing about it all.

Come to think of it, maybe I’ll send them a donation.  The more these guys are forced to confront the demands of true science, the more they end up showing forth the infinite creative genius of the Almighty.
