There have been a lot of posts and threads recently regarding atheism, God, Christianity, the bible and so forth, and they all seem to eventually at some point, touch on evolution.
I'm starting this thread because the threads that are currently in existence, dealing with or discussing evolution, are really diverse, and although they do touch on the subject, I'd like to discuss it, in a fairly isolated and structured environment.
I have a number of honest questions for the evolutionists and materialists among you.
I am going to ask one question at a time, allowing adequet time to post answers, and then discuss each answer before posting the next one.
I'm looking for honest answers, that can be discussed and analysed.
Please try and answer them if you are able, and please try and keep on topic.
Question 1. How did life originate?
Evolutionist Professor Paul Davies admitted, “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.” (Davies, Paul, Australian Centre for Astrobiology, Sydney, New Scientist 179(2403):32, 2003)
Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard, said, “we don’t really know how life originated on this planet”.(Knoll, Andrew H., PBS Nova interview, How Did Life Begin? July 1, 2004)
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-sized functional protein would form. So how did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?
