First life

Life begetting life is natural.  Minerals begetting life is not natural.  The origin of first life is not the only unsolved problem for the evolutionist, but it’s certainly the biggest.  There are two basic theories of how life began.  The first is that a molecule similar to DNA randomly came together and began replicating itself.  The second theory is that a soup of chemicals similar to protoplasm formed and stayed together long enough for some sort of evolution to set in.  Proponents of each view say the other view is not possible.  If you’re interested, here’s a link from Science Daily saying why each theory couldn’t have happened.  The basic reasons are that chemical compounds cannot support Darwinian evolution in the absence of something like DNA which encodes and stores information (which explodes the plasm-first theory) and that DNA is far too complex to have arisen first.

For sharp readers familiar with the history of evolutionary theorizing, this is another chicken-and-egg question.  Which came first, DNA capable of supporting a cell, or cellular chemistry capable of supporting DNA?  Neither is capable of existing and evolving on its own, so whichever came first was still inadequate to get evolution going.

Now for some actual science: There is no evidence for either theory.  As legitimate scientists keep repeating: science is all about observation, and no random assortment of chemicals has ever been observed to do anything like what evolution requires.  The evidence for this is zero.  The article linked above inadvertently acknowledges this when the author keeps lapsing into phrases such as “must have begun” or “could have offered a stable habitat,” and so on.  In other words, they’re guessing and don’t know, which reminds me of something the late Dr. Henry Morris said.  Evolution isn’t something you can know.  It can only be believed.
