Just Wondering How…

I know this lifeless statue of Lord Louis had a creator because I see his creation.

I know this lifeless statue of Lord Louis had a creator because I see his creation.


I was just wondering how did life originate given that evolutionist Professor Paul Davies admitted, “nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organised themselves into the first living cell.” Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard said, “we don’t really know how life originated on this planet.” A minimal cell needs several hundred proteins. Even if every atom in the universe were an experiment with all the correct amino acids present for every possible molecular vibration in the supposed evolutionary age of the universe, not even one average size functional protein would form. So how did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?

    Your question is another word for word, cut and paste from creation.com.

    Let’s deal with the nested quotes separately.

    1) Paul Davies’ quote is, “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organised themselves into the first living cell.”
    This sounds like it’s so incredible that we have no idea how it could have happened.
    The quote comes from an article he did for the July 2012 issue of New Scientist. Here is his quote again, along with the very next line which creation.com decided not to print…

    “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organised themselves into the first living cell. It may have been a straightforward sequence of unexceptional chemical processes, or a bizarre accident.”

    The true meaning is now more apparent. ie. That we didn’t observe it so we don’t know which of the possible scientific theories we have is correct.

    2) Andy Knoll, who Creditaction and creation.com call a ‘professor of biology’ is actually a palaeontologist. His classic bit of creationist quote-mining comes from an interview he did in 2004. You can find it here, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/evolution/how-did-life-begin.html

    After explaining what early proto-life was like he was asked the question, ‘In a nutshell, what is the process? How does life form?’
    He answered with the line that creation.com/Creditaction has quoted. As with the previous quote-mine, the immediate following line has been dropped. Here are the two lines together…

    “The short answer is we don’t really know how life originated on this planet. There have been a variety of experiments that tell us some possible roads, but we remain in substantial ignorance.”

    Once again, the fact that science has adequate theories has been removed.
    I strongly recommend that readers follow the link. The article is short and written in layman’s terms.

    The rest of the post regarding, ‘if every atom in the universe were an experiment’ etc is basically a reworking of Hoyle’s Fallacy, in that cellular life did not arrive spontaneously. It happened by degrees, so the structures, and indeed the maths, is far, far simpler.
    Sir Frederick Hoyle made his calculations many years ago and has been proven wrong for decades, but that doesn’t stop creationists from quoting him and using his incorrect calculations ever since.

    So in just on post, we have two quote-mines that deliberately try to change the meaning and some disproved maths from decades ago.

    Creation.com and Creditaction, (unwittingly) are publishing misinformation. There are those that may call this bearing false witness. You decide for yourself.

    As you have not removed this post, you are deliberately spreading misinformation.
    To deliberately misinform, is to lie.

    Lying for Jesus.
