The Mystery of Life's Origin: Reassessing Current Theories (Again)

In this presentation I will explore how origin-of-life research findings of the last 60+ years have helped to clarify the nature of the mystery of life’s origin, while, in some ways, increasing the magnitude of the mystery itself. Nobel Laureate George Whitesides recently said, “I don’t understand how you go from a system that’s random chemicals to something that becomes, in a sense, a Darwinian set of (chemical) reactions that are getting more complicated spontaneously.” I will also explore what would be the theistic (or atheistic) implications if such an unlikely chemical pathway was discovered in the future.

Many people today, both secular and Christian, want us to believe that science and religion cannot live together. Not only is this untrue, but we believe that a thoughtful dialogue between science and faith is essential for engaging the hearts and minds of individuals today. BioLogos provides an important first step towards that end.
