Evaluating Models of the Origin of Life

Date recorded: 25 May 2020 | Speaker: Boris Schmidtgall | Event: ELF Science Network


Most scientists deny the reality of life’s creation as revealed in the Bible. Instead it is proposed that the first forms of life originated by means of unguided chemical processes. However, in view of the breathtaking intricacy and sophistication of even the most primitive organisms, no one has a clue how exactly the first organisms might have been formed. From the mid-20th century until now, several scientists have conducted experiments to underpin models that have been put forth to explain the miracle of the origin of life. In spite of repeated assertions to have come close to the solution, the actual data reveal a different picture. Some of the most important models of the origin of life and related experiments will be analyzed with respect to their plausibility.
