Default Re: Evolution: Fact, Theory, Dogma, or Fiction

Ok im not a christian, but i find evolution to be utterly stupid. They say they have facts, but you need as much faith, if not more than religion to belive in evolution.

Here's some things that raise some questions, and these are just the tip of the iceberg, i really don't have enough time or space here to write everything.

Richard Dawkins one of the most celebrated evoluntionists of our time speculates "In the beginning Earth had a atmosphere composed of carbon dioxide, water, amonia, and methane. Through energy supplied by sunlight, and perhaps by lightning and exploding volcanoes, these simple compounds were broken apart and then they reforrmed into amino acids. A variety of these gradually accummulated in the sea and combined into proteinlike compounds. Ultimatley, he says, the ocean became an "organic soup," But still lifeless.
Then according to Dawkins description, "a particlularly remarkable molecule was formed by accident" - a molecule that had the ability to reproduce itself. Though admitting that such an accident was exceedingly improbable, he maintains that it must have nevertheless happened. Similar molecules clustered together, and then, again by an exceedingly improbable accident, they wrapped a protective barrier of other protein molecules around themselves as a membrane. Thus it is claimed, the first living cell generated itself.

Ok, so even compared to humans and other living things, a cell is a amazingly complex organism. Fossil residues of ancient life forms do not show a simple the evolutionary theory lacks a proper foundation. And as information increases, it becomes harder to explain how microscopic life forms arose by chance.

The principle steps enroute to the origin of life as envisioned by evolutionary theory, are

1. The existence of the right primitive atmosphere
2 a concetration in the ocneans of an organic soup of "simple" molecules necassary for life
3 From these come proteins and nucleotides (complex chemical compounds)
4 They combine and aqquire a membrane
5 they develop a gentic code and start making copies of themselves.

In 1953 Stanely Miller passed an electric spark through an "atmosphere" of hydrogen, methane, ammonia, and water vapor. This produced some of the many amino acids that exist and are the building blocks of protien. However, he got just 4 of the 20 amino acids needed for life to exist. More than 30 years later, scientists were still unable to produce all the 20 neccasarry amino acids under conditions that could be consider plausible.

Miller assumed the earths's primitive atmosphere was similiar to the one in his experimental flask. Why? Because he and a co-worker later said "the synthesis of compounds of biological intrest takes place only under reducing (no free oxygen in the atmosphere) condtions" Yet other evolutionists theorize that oxygen was present. The dilemma this creates for evolution is expressed by some: "With oxygen in the air, the first amino acid would never have gotten started; without oxygen it would have been wiped out by cosmic rays."

The fact is any, any attempt to establish the nature of earths primitive atmosphere and the beginnings of life can only be based on guesswork or assumption.
