An editor from Scientific American wouldn’t allow John Horgan to use this headline, “Pssst! Don’t tell the creationists, but scientists don’t have a clue how life began.”
“Exactly 20 years ago, I wrote an article for Scientific American that, in draft form, had the headline above. My editor nixed it, so we went with something less dramatic: “In the Beginning…: Scientists are having a hard time agreeing on when, where and—most important—how life first emerged on the earth.” That editor is gone now, so I get to use my old headline, which is even more apt today.”
You name it, DNA first, RNA, and metabolism-first are more frustrating and puzzling with insurmountable obstacles for various evolutionists. Crick’s rescue solution for the problem on how life supposedly arose is not valid either, “Crick’s old escape route doesn’t solve anything: “Of course, panspermia theories merely push the problem of life’s origin into outer space.”
In the New York Times…“Two dozen chemists, geologists, biologists, planetary scientists and physicists gathered here recently to ponder where and what Eden might have been. Over a long weekend they plastered the screen in their conference room with intricate chemical diagrams through which electrons bounced in a series of interactions like marbles rattling up and down and over bridges through one of those child’s toys, transferring energy, taking care of the business of nascent life. The names of elements and molecules tripped off chemists’ tongues as if they were the eccentric relatives who show up at Thanksgiving every year.”
“The rapid appearance of complex life in some accounts — “like Athena springing from the head of Zeus,” in the words of Dr. McKay”
Interesting how baal worship is used in a positive light during a science discussion. Back to blogger, John Horgan. He eventually finds his comfort zone by ranting on creationists, claiming that we “blame” God for the creation. Listen John, your rant was uncalled for, we do not “blame” God for creating the heavens and earth! It’s not a curse but rather a glorious blessing! We are amazed and excited about by such an advanced design from the simple things to the more complex with its incredible beauty! We look forward to learning more on how it works. We thank Him for what He has given us, so John, we don’t blame him for these things which were created by Him!
