We’re often told that origin of life experiments have simulated the production of life’s building blocks under conditions that mimicked the early earth. Or at least that’s what many textbooks say. But is this really true? This video shows how origin of life researchers “cheat” by using purified chemicals that don’t reproduce actual natural conditions. Another dirty little secret is Read More ›
In this interview, Dr. James Tour and Dr. Stephen Meyer discuss science and faith, while getting into the details on the discovery of complex, sequence specific information required for life’s function and origin, and the required fine-tuned laboratory that we call our universe that must exist in order for assembly to occur. In the search for a cause, and by Read More ›
Dr. Stephen C. Meyer, author of Darwin’s Doubt, Signature in the Cell, and other heady scientific tomes, joins Eric in the bunker to reveal more about the mysteries of life — our own and that of our planet.
The origin of life from non-life remains one of the most enduring mysteries of modern science. Dr. Walter Bradley explains why materialist suppositions fail as science, pointing to the need for an intelligent author of the first life. At the 2020 Dallas Conference on Science & Faith his presentation explored the paradox-filled intellectual world of origin-of-life research. According to Bradley, Read More ›
Organisms have well-defined molecular assemblies, redox potentials across membranes, and metabolic pathways — all operating in exquisite states that we call “life.” Chemistry, by contrast, is utterly indifferent to whether anything is alive or not. Without a biologically derived entity acting upon them, molecules have never been shown to “evolve” toward life. Never. While organisms exploit chemistry for their own Read More ›
Nanotechnology Prof James (Jim) Tour & Glasgow biology Prof Lee Cronin debate contemporary Origins of Life research and whether Lee’s lab is on the way to discovering it. Related News from Evolution.News about Jim Tour
The origin of life from non-life remains one of the most enduring mysteries of modern science. The Mystery of Life’s Origin: The Continuing Controversy investigates how close scientists are to solving that mystery and explores what we are learning about the origin of life from current research in chemistry, physics, astrobiology, biochemistry, and more. The book includes an updated version of the Read More ›
