Serialization Blog

I will be using this Serialization Blog to post articles as episodes in a series. You will be able to find the full articles on the Articles page of this website. I’ll also be throwing in some stand-alone posts as well. These Principles of Creation posts are based on my original ideas and the hope I have to renew the whole approach today to Christian Creationism and science.

#6 Miller-Urey Experiment

Great excitement was generated by an experiment performed in 1953 by Stanley Miller and Harold Urey.  They set up an apparatus containing methane, ammonia and hydrogen gases with water vapour to represent the hypothetical early Earth atmosphere and passed electric sparks through it to simulate lightning strikes.  In this reducing atmosphere, the heavy energy input…

#5 Metabolism without Enzymes and Cell Membranes?

Clay Catalysts Metabolic processes within cells are catalysed by protein enzymes.  It was realized that the formation of macromolecules had to be catalysed by something, and unless life pulled itself up by its own bootstraps these catalysts could not be enzymes.  So, it was proposed by A.G. Caines-Smith in 1985 that clay composed of silicates…

#4 Primeval Soup Theory

The Primeval Soup Theory for the origin of life on Earth was first proposed by J. B. S. Haldane (1892-1964), a British Marxist biologist who lived in the USA and Britain, and Alexander Oparin (1894-1980) of the USSR.  It is the idea that life arose from inorganic matter under conditions proposed as having existed on…

#3 Origin of Life: Theory and Politics

As far as the history of ideas is concerned, the notion that life can arise from non-life was linked to the rise of Communism during the 20th century and its atheistic underpinning.  It was a necessary corollary to belief in Dialectical Materialism that Soviet scientists find an origin to life that did not involve God. …

#2 Spontaneous Generation?

Historically nobody was much troubled by the origin of life.  The origin of life – where life came from – did not in the past really formulate itself as a question.  Quite apart from believing that the world has always been the way it is, and that God made it that way, it was commonly…

#1 Origin of Life – Chance, Unknown Law or Design?

The Steps of Creation Part I Chapter 9 – a series of posts taken from the book on the theme of evolution: what it can achieve and what it cannot achieve. Introduction The investigation into the origin of life is one of the most speculative areas of science, but it is of the utmost importance…

Creation of kinds was good (not lucky)

Genesis 1:11-13Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.…
