Have you ever studied
the microbiological aspects of the theory of evolution?
That is: The process and probability of life from chemicals?
The microbiological world includes: Eighty amino acids (twenty of which are
bioactive), sugars, ribose, Dna molecules, Rna molecules, nucleotides, enzymes,
proteins, cytochromes, the genetic code, cells, etc. This world is very complex and
grows more complex with the advance of science.
Harold Morowitz, an evolutionary scientist, has estimated the chance
formation in a prebiotic soup of the most simple living organism at one in 10 to the
340 millionth power (Energy Flow in Biology, p.99). This probability is about like
flipping a coin one billion times and getting all heads!
H.P. Yockey, an agnostic scientist, states that the chance formation in a
prebiotic soup of a single cytochrome C molecule (a class of iron-containing proteins
important in cell metabolism) is one in 10 to the 36th power acceptable planets with
just the right conditions (billions of planets with prebiotic soups) for 10 to the 9th
power (one billion) years (A Calculation of the Probability of Spontaneous Biogenesis
by Information Theory, pp. 393, 396). Concerning the size of these odds: In the 15
billion years since the big bang, there have been less than 10 to the 18th power
Dr. Francis H. Crick, an evolutionary scientist, one of the discoverers of the
structure of DNA, did not believe that life from chemicals was possible on planet
earth. There are not enough elements on planet earth to perform the enzyme
reactions necessary for life! ("Were We Planted Here?," Time, Sept. 10, 1973, p. 53)
Note: Evolution does not address the origin of the elements necessary for
Charles Darwin was not a microbiologist. He once was a Theological student.
His theory of evolution proves he still had much faith. Charles himself said, in The
Origin of the Species: "Long before the reader has arrived at this part of my work, a
crowd of difficulties will have occurred to him. Some of them are so serious that to
this day I can hardly reflect on them without being in some degree staggered; but, to
the best of my Judgement, the greater number are only apparent, and those that are
real are not, I think fatal to the theory.” (The underlines are mine.) Later in My Life
and Letters vol. 1 p. 210, Darwin said: "not one change of species into another is on
record . . . We cannot prove that a single species has changed."
The microbiological aspects of life actually suggest the existence of God! Life
from chemicals is impossible without God. "For since the creation of the world His
invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being
understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse (Rom.
1:20)." Believe in the God of the Bible and the Savior He sent into the world: "For
God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in
Him should not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16)."
