I found this article called 'How Evolution works'. This doesn't seem to be a creationist website but I found the author's conclusion interesting. I bolded the last sentence. He states:
These examples do simplify the requirements for the "original cell," but it is still a long way to spontaneous generation of life. Perhaps the first living cells were completely different from what we see today, and no one has yet imagined what they might have been like. Speaking in general terms, life can only have come from one of two possible places:
- Spontaneous creation - Random chemical processes created the first living cell.
- Supernatural creation - God or some other supernatural power created the first living cell.
What I found interesting is out the above "two possible places", we hardly, if ever, hear an evolutionist mention the possibility of God. We'll get hypothesis after hypothesis but all of them will not include the possibility of God. Maybe conditions were different on earth. Maybe the first cell was less complex. Maybe it was aliens. Here's an article about Stephen Hawking and his alien thoughts: http://creation.com/...-hawking-aliens
The inner workings of the first cell are amazingly complex. From cars, to trains, to skyscrapers, to planes, to cell phones, to computers, we attribute a designer behind it. However, when it comes to a cell, something many more times complex than anything manmade, it is chalked up to evolution.
So no one knows how the first cell evolved. There are multiple theories of course, but nothing proven, nothing close, and of course most main stream evolutionists won't even ponder the possibility of God.
Doing a Google search, it seems like there are anywhere between 50 - 100 trillion cells in the human body. The most basic component for life. Amazing.
This thread really isn't for debate, however you can if you wish. I wanted to share what I thought was just another fine example of our God's amazing creation! Any comments you wish to add to it about cells, their functions, irreducible complexity, etc. are welcome.
