The Origin Of Life: Disproving Evolution

1669 words - 7 pages

The Origin of life has been a controversial issue for a very long time now. The big bang theory, then followed by evolution are the most accepted scientific views; they are in fact taught as valid theories in all public schools, therefore making them theories that the government strongly uphold and promote. These same theories have had serious doubt shed upon them by literature and media such as Evolution of a Creationist, Prepare to Answer, The Genesis Flood, Evolution Cruncher, and the Flew-Warren Debate, just to name a few.Primarily, the Big Bang defies the second law of thermodynamics.The Big Bang theory has been accepted by a majority of scientists today. It theorizes that a large quantity of nothing decided to pack tightly together,--and then explode outward into hydrogen and helium. This gas is said to have flowed outward through frictionless space ("frictionless," so the outflowing gas cannot stop or slow down) to eventually form stars, galaxies, planets, and moons. It all sounds so simple, just as you would find in a science fiction novel. And that is all it is. (Ferrell 70)As explained by Shelly in his book Prepare to Answer, in nature all things gain entropy, that is they move from order to disorder. It goes against the regular flow of nature. Atoms do not just spontaneously organize themselves into being. There fore either a long standing law of science is incorrect or the big bang theory was erroneous to begin with. As Dr. Bludman, of the department of physics of the University of Pennsylvania said,"We now appreciate that, because of the huge entropy generated in our Universe, far from oscillating, a closed universe can only go through one cycle of expansion and contraction. Whether closed or open, reversing or monotonically expanding, the severely irreversible phase transitions transpiring give the Universe a definite beginning, middle, and end."(Shelly p.45)The second blow to the evolutionary ego would be the sheer probability that this Earth and all the necessities of man are perfectly created quite by accident in one spontaneous combustion of nothingness. It is thought that time can somehow produce evolution, if there is enough time in which to do it! The evolutionist tells us that, given enough time, all the insurmountable obstacles to spontaneous generation will somehow vanish and life can suddenly appear, grow, and flourish. In order for the theory of evolution to be true, life had to arise from non-living matter. The Law of Biogenesis tells us that this could not have happened, but there are still a great number of evolutionary scientists who want to believe that there is a small chance this could happen. What would these scientists claim that the odds are of this happening? Well, it is scientifically accepted that activities beyond the probability of 1x1050 simply do not occur in the natural world, this is known as the law of probability. The distinguished British astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle put it this way: "If one counts the...

Philosophical Naturalism and the Origin of Life

693 words - 3 pages Upon considering the origin of man, a purely naturalistic philosophy that refuses to acknowledge a supernatural and transcendental cause is unable to provide a full account of anthropogenesis. One could examine this inability from two perspectives: in answering the question as to how life or “being” came into existence, and in answering the question as to why life or “being” came into existence and continues. Both of these questions give rise

Creationists believe that God created man, but scientists believe that a natural explanation of

A Mesophilic Origin of Life

1011 words - 4 pages A Mesophilic Origin of Life Nearly all scientists agree that life on Earth began billions of years ago. Most will also agree that RNA appeared first and found a way to replicate itself, an essential step in the early stages of life. Without this ability of RNA, only short pieces of DNA could be copied and no enzymes could be created to copy longer strands which would be necessary for the formation of enzymes[1]. Beyond that, there is

An Analysis of the Epic Poem, Beowulf - Origin and Evolution of Beowulf

These researchers contend that the need for more advanced language did not exist for human populations until approximately 70,000 years ago and that the origin of that need approximately corresponded with the date of the beginning of the last ice age (McConnell, 1977).
