The First Living Cell – How Could It Happen ?
Presented by Frank Mayo
Evolutionists never say by what natural process the first cell could arise simply because they have no real idea. However, without the first living reproducing cell there could not be any selection of mutations and so no evolution. Thus, the origin of the first cell is the most important problem in evolution. This is a huge problem for evolutionists because it is foundationally important and because no one has ever come anywhere close to a solution even under ideal laboratory conditions. When natural conditions are considered as well, the problem gets vastly more intractable. In this presentation, we will use simple language and basic principles to identify the difficulties in the ideal laboratory problem and the complications of the natural environment. We will also look at the way some common textbook illustrations simply distract the student’s attention from the most critical issues. We will also look at what some top-level scientists say. Join us for the adventure!
