The position of many theists, even those who realize evolution is a fact confirmed by evidence, is that it cannot be just a chance occurrence because the odds are so fantastically great that the universe in not old enough for that to have happened, when accounting for the laws of nature as we know them. The transition from non-living to living organisms, in earth’s history, is assumed to not be a singular event. Abiogenesis is not controversial among scientists.Theists state that the only possible way that life could have been created must be the work of a supernatural being.
Researchers from the University of Duisburg-Essen, in Germany, have recreated the inhospitable, severe environment and the geochemical conditions, deep in the earth’s crust, approximately 3.8 billion years ago. They created bubble-like structures of the pre-biological conditions which survived the harsh environment. Such vesicles might have become stable enough to come to the surface during geyser eruptions, geologist Ulrich Schreibers stated.
The research paper is still under peer review and we will be looking for further development. Scientists are coming closer and closer to proof that abiogenesis is possible and that the results are reproducible. Pressure, geochemical conditions and nature’s laws created the precursors of life in the early earth. It is likely that there are many locations on many planets where the same environment exists. Therefore, in my humble opinion, the transition of non-life to life is not an impossible occurrence by chance, at improbable odds, as many people think, but that it is an inevitable result of the geochemical environment and the laws of nature in many places in the universe. I further contend that we will eventually find life elsewhere, even in our own solar system, and that on far away planets life has evolved. To what extent we will probably never know because of the size of the universe.
