I would like to now focus on scientific evidence that life here on earth was created, and it not happen about by chance. According many evolutionists the early atmosphere of the earth consisted of methane, ammonia, water and carbon dioxide. Through varrious forms of energy form the sun, volcanoes, and lightning that the these chemicals were broken down and then form amino acids and they went into the sea were they formed a chemical soup of organic componds. Many evolutionist hold that after some period of time, be accendent that a molecule that could reproduce formed. After this happen for some time simular molecules grouped to gather and formed a protective membrane of protein molecules around themselves.
(If you feel above information is wrong feel free to point out what I got wrong, I am willing to admit my mistakes.)
The question is could a cell spontaneous generate form non living matter?
The idea of spontaneous generation of life has been around a long time. In the middle ages people believed that flies and rats spontaneous generated from piles of garbed and rotting meat. Many of you are no doubt are aware of the experiment by Francesco Redi, an Italian physcian. He proved that magets only apeared on meat that flies could get to, but not on the meat that the flies could not get to. After this though many people still believed that micoscopic organisms spontaneous generated on meat and other things. Many of you are most likely aware of the experiments that Lewis Pasteur on weather or not microscopic forms of life could spontaneously generate. He was able to prove with his experiments that this was not the case. And to date no lab experiment has been able to spontanously generate singled cell life or other microscopic forms of life.
So we now that life does not spontaneously generates, and that life can only come form preexisting life. But could this have been possible in the past, billions of years ago?
Many who support evolution will point to the famous experiment that was proformed by Stanley Miller in 1953, and say that this shows that life was able to spontaneous generate in the past.
Miller assumed that the primitive atmosphere had to be free of chemically uncombined oxygen, because if there was oxygen was present it would quickly decompose any amino acids that were formed. Miller got a sealed flask with hydrogen, ammonia, methane, and boiling water. He sent a electric sparks through the mixture of gasses inside the flask and in a weeks time got many amino acids, the bluiding blocks of life.
First question that rises with this is, was the early atmosphere of the earth really like this?
Two years afte Miller conducted his experiment he said "These ideas are of course specculation, for we don not know the Earth has a reducing atmosphere when it was formed . . . No direct evidence has yet been found."
-Journal of the American Chemical Sciety, May 12, 1955.
As of yet no conculsive proof has been found to prove that this was the case for the early atmosphere of the earth. But there is anther problem with this. Recent computer models of such an atmosphere inidcate that if such an atmosphere lacked oxygen that ultraviolet radiation, that is currently blocked by the ozone layer would quickly destroyed any amino acids that were formed. But as was stated that if oxygen was present that these amino acids would never have been able to be formed.
Sounds like circular reasoning to me.
I will post more evidence I have latter.
