|I must compliment you on your website as I
always enjoy looking for new perspectives regarding science and God.
Currently I am in a philosophy of social science course where we are
studying artificial intelligence. My professor has made the comment on one
of my papers that:
"If you put together the right sort of molecules the right way and
let the chemical interactions take their course, you've got life! This
was definitely settled with the discovery c.1950 of the molecular
mechanism of cellular replication, DNA, RNA, etc."
Could you guide me to any further reading on this subject that might
help me in the area of science creating life?
Thank you much, and God bless.
Curiously, I have received numerous criticisms from scientists and
evolutionists for my reference to the Miller-Urey experiments of the
1950's as being commonly believed to provide evidence that life could
form naturally. Yet I see evidence again and again that this is
indeed what people have been lead to believe and here is another
example of it being taught within our universities almost 50 years
If you want to find more information on this topic, you can go to
any good search engine and enter key words such as Miller-Urey,
abiogenesis, Alexander I. Oparin or chemical evolution.
The real question, however, is whether you will find the truth or
just a myth that has been perpetuated by those whose desire to believe
that life formed on its own also requires that they rely on
misinterpret and over-extrapolate the results of Miller-Urey type
experiments to support their beliefs.
Before you accept this proposition, I would encourage you and your
professor to take my "Pop
Quiz on Evolution and the Origin of Life," read the
materials referenced on the answer page and discuss the topic with
open minds. In particular, you can also see my page
"Life" in a Test Tube or "Designer Genes"?
If your professor's comments also resulted in your grade being
marked down, I'd petition him to review it again after looking deeper
into the facts.
