Atheism / Secularism
Beginning of Life

Where Did Life Come From?

Did life form naturally arising from available materials?

If we are going to look at this scientifically, we need to examine the evidence. What evidence is there that life can into existence naturally?

None. There is no evidence that supports this theory.

If you believe that life can into existence naturally, that belief is based on pure blind faith.

If you know of any scientific evidence showing that life arose naturally, please contact us. We do seek the truth and would be happy to include such evidence here.

Experiments have been run trying to"duplicate" the conditions thought to have lead to the formation of life. Some experiments have created amino acids (although not the kind found in life), but none have created life. And amino acids are just chemical compounds, they are not life.

You will read in some publications that Darwin was right, life evolved naturally from non-life. But, is this true? A recent issue of National Geographic had a 33-page cover story on this topic. If you'd like to read the answer to that article, it's available here: National Geographic is wrong and so was Darwin

By the way, do you know the full title of Darwin's book? It is: "Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life". Is there a hint of racism in this title? Yes, the belief in the natural creation of life and evolution is the foundation of racism. But that's a topic we'll cover elsewhere.

The 81-year-old well-known British professor of philosophy, Anthony Flew, who was a leading atheist until 2004 when he became a theist (he now believes in the existance of God), said:

  • "Biologists' investigation of DNA has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce [life], that intelligence must have been involved." (1)

  • "It has become inordinately difficult even to begin to think about constructing a naturalistic theory of the evolution of that first reproducing organism." (2)

  • "I have been persuaded that it is simply out of the question that the first living matter evolved out of dead matter and then developed into an extraordinarily complicated creature." (3)

Believing in the natural formation of life is a blind faith.

You can either have blind faith that life came about naturally, or you can take the word of an eye witness who was there when life was created.

Next: Influence on Life. The fruits of secularism.
