Origens da Vida: Argumentação Criacionista


by Babu G. Ranganathan
(B.A. Bible/Biology)

Just having the right materials and conditions don't mean that life can arise by chance.

What many don't realize is that although oxygen is necessary for life's processes, the presence of oxygen would prevent life from coming into being. This is because oxygen is destructive unless there are mechanisms already in place to control, direct, and regulate it such as what we find in already existing forms of life. 

Evolutionists must assume that the early earth had no oxygen. But, then that would mean there was no ozone layer in the atmosphere to protect from harmful radiation that would destroy life or even any budding form of life. Ozone is made-up of oxygen. It's a Catch-22 situation for evolutionists. In fact, there are numerous Catch-22 situations for evolutionists when it comes to the origin of life issue. The latest scientific evidence from geology shows that there, indeed, was oxygen in the earth's earliest atmosphere.

Miller, in his famous experiment in 1953 (and he made sure not use oxygen), showed that individual amino acids (the building blocks of life) could come into existence by chance. But, it's not enough just to have amino acids. The various amino acids that make-up life must link together in a precise sequence, just like the letters in a sentence, to form functioning protein molecules. If they're not in the right sequence the protein molecules won't work. It has never been shown that various amino acids can bind together into a sequence by chance to form protein molecules. Even the simplest cell is made up of many millions of various protein molecules. 

The probability of just an average size protein molecule arising by chance is 10 to the 65th power. Mathematicians have said any event in the universe with odds of 10 to 50th power or greater is impossible! The late great British scientist Sir Frederick Hoyle calculated that the the odds of even the simplest cell coming into existence by chance is 10 to the 40,000th power! How large is this? Consider that the total number of atoms in our universe is 10 to the 82 power.

The cell could not have gradually evolved. A partially evolved cell would quickly disintegrate under the effects of random forces of the environment, especially without the protection of a complete and fully functioning cell membrane. A partially evolved cell cannot wait millions of years for chance to make it complete and living! In fact, it couldn't have even reached the partially evolved state.

Of course, once there is a complete and living cell then the code and mechanisms exist to direct the formation of more cells. The problem for evolutionists is how did the cell originate when there were no directing code and mechanisms in nature. Natural laws may explain how a cell or airplane works but mere undirected natural laws could not have brought about the existence of either.

What about natural selection? Natural selection doesn't create or produce anything. It can only "select" from what is produced that has survival value. Natural selection can only "select" from variations that are possible. If a variation occurs that helps a species survive, that survival is called " natural selection." It's a passive process. There's no conscious selection by nature, and natural selection only operates in nature once there is life and reproduction and not before, so it would not be of assistance to the origin of life.

Science can't prove we're here by chance or design. Neither was observed. Both are positions of faith. The issue is which faith is best supported by science. Let the scientific arguments of both sides be presented.

E minha resposta que nao foi mandada para publicacao ( nao e` do topico)

@BabuG.Ranganathan  BABU, for sure, must have a code. if the genes of my father were merely a bunch of molecules swimming in the ovule's liquid, I as not here today. Like those amino acids. But... what is a code, in a biological sense? It is the tendency of atoms organized or not into molecules to linking in the same way/sequence that they were before, in the system where they came from. Like Chinese people arriving to United States searches first other chineses and go to live in Chinatown. So, the atoms of h aminoacids of the genes of my father organized in the way they were before in the system called human species. That is the cause I have not born as a giraffe... 

So, must had a code, we agree. Darwinian evolutionists does need the existence of a previous code for explaining the first protein, the first RNA, the first cell system, like you does not need it because your code is God. The Darwinian evolutionists has their God also = the absolute, the magical, the builder, the Almighty Random.

What`s the problem? There are people to whom the code has as name " Pink Unicorn", other is " The Spaghetti Monster", etc. For you is " God". You can not see the others codes. have you seen the Pink Unicorn? The Builder Random? No, then, you can not believe in them. But, they also never saw yours God, so, respect the right they have for not believing in it too. Do you want to keep yours " code"? Keep it and let people to keep theirs.

 I have a name for the code too. But, I believe in what I can see, touch, or other people that I believe in them.  So, I don't believe in yours God because I never saw it and I don't believe in the authors of the Bible. Neither in the super-random, neither in black holes. I believe in the name of the code that gave me my life because I can see who is behind the name: the human species.

But, what about the code that drove to organizing as a system, those atoms, and them those aminoacids, and them those proteins, till the first living being - a cell system? What's behind that code? Nobody told me, then , I went looking for myself. I went to the heart of Amazon jungle, because there was the last place in the world that the witnesses of life`s origins are still alive. And I found something that I can see, touch, and it can works like the " code". I gave its name: The Matrix/DNA.

I was looking for a natural system, because the code for the first cell system must be a system. What system was inside that primordial soup? Only atoms, but forget, atoms could not get that big evolutionary jump to cells. There was no other system inside the soup... but... there was something entering the soup coming from the sun and from the Cosmos and from the Earth's nucleus: fótons from these galaxy. And this galaxy is a system! Remember: you don't have the whole system inside the egg, so, you have the genes, they will re-composing the system. Could be fótons, the genes of this galaxy?

The astronomic theoretical academic model of galaxies does not fit as parents of the first cell. Then, I draw an imaginary galaxy with all real fact that science had about galaxies, but, that could fit as a parent of the fist cell. But my galaxy did not work as a cell system. But... it works perfectly as the building block of the DNA, a lateral pair of nucleotides.

That's it! I calculated every evolutionary step starting with a carbon atom and I arrived to a copy of my galaxy! I found my code! It is not the galaxy, but, yes, the galaxy's DNA... 

What?! Galaxies does have DNA?! Yes, and atoms to. Most simply than our DNA because they were our primitive ancestors. But all natural systems has DNA. The code. The first shape of this code that emerged through the Big Bang was a wave resulting from the seven kinds of electromagnetic radiation... you can call it, light. Do you know that this wave has all living thing properties? it is a living thing. 

Now, the code has more a new name... Matrix/DNA
