A Lack of Scientific Consensus on the Origin of Life is Proof that Jesus is Lord

Virtually the entire scientific community agrees, the problem of life’s origin is unsolved.  How can a universe of mindless matter produce beings with intrinsic ends, self-replicating capabilities, and ‘coded chemistry’?  …the origin of life poses a seemingly intractable problem for naturalism.

—evangelical Christian authors, Josh and Sean McDowell, Evidence that Demands a Verdict, p. lxx-lxxii


Gary:  Well, “seemingly” is the key word in that quote.   It was seemingly certain to Christian leaders of the sixteenth century that the sun revolves around the earth.  But a scientist named Copernicus proved their seemingly certain belief completely false.

On the question of the origin of life, religionists tell us that the current lack of a scientific consensus position on this universal question is evidence that…God did it!  But not so fast.  Before we allow Christians to stampede us into a snap decision on an (as of yet) unsolved mystery of the universe, let’s take our time, examine the current evidence and research, and wait until the experts have reached a consensus on this issue.  What’s the rush, Christians?  Research takes time!  It’s not as if we are all going to burn forever in a pitch-dark torture pit at the center of the earth full of liquid fire if we don’t make a decision this very minute, right???

Here is a very interesting, yet very short video discussing current naturalist theories for the origin of life.  Watch it!  It’s good!  Scientists may not have the answer to this question now, but it sounds like they may be getting close!
