Which Way To Go?
Welcome to EvC, Lomu. I read through the article and saw that it indeed did support the Theistic view of creation.
Life did not arise by physics and chemistry without intelligence. The intelligence needed to create life, even the simplest life, is far greater than that of humans; we are still scratching around trying to understand fully how the simplest life forms work. There is much yet to be learned of even the simplest bacterium. Indeed, as we learn more the ‘problem’ of the origin of life gets more difficult; a solution does not get nearer, it gets further away. But the real problem is this: the origin of life screams at us that there is a super-intelligent Creator of life and that is just not acceptable to the secular mind of today.
The origin of life is about as good as it gets in terms of scientific ‘proof’ for the existence of God.
You say you are a scientist and have your own views and beliefs so my question to you is which forum you wish to discuss this in and under which context?
Is your view more akin to science or to faith?
