The complexity of biological information is beyond the comprehension of man. The secrets of life are being scratched at their surface, and the colossal amount of information we have acquired so far is only the beginning of what is to come. Ever since the dawn of man, God was considered the source of all that exists in the universe, and the last century of biological research has propelled this fact into levels of confirmation beyond that which could have been predicted. Indeed, with every coming year, it seems as if the certainty of God as the Creator of all life on Earth is multiplied, with abiogenesis seeming more like another fiction in which has more to account for with virtually every other lab experiment that goes by. For those who do not know, abiogenesis is the idea that life naturally arose on Earth. Despite the fact that after centuries of attempt, and with scores of experiments involving world renowned scientists utilizing the uppermost technology of the day, these experiments have not only utterly failed to yield a single, self-replicating cell, they have failed to yield anything that could even be considered a failure of an attempt for a cell!
Over the past year, from the beginning of September 2016 until now, the nonsensical man-made theorem of abiogenesis has taken significant damage in yet another way. Usually, abiogenesis can be dismissed because there is too much complexity in biological information to account for, but what we have here is an entirely new type of debunking that wasn’t exactly very easy to see coming, but gladly welcomed nonetheless. But, it is here now, and it gives us another reason to savor every last moment when hysterically laughing at some unfortunate souls who are actually convinced that life arose naturally on Earth.
One year ago, the earliest known confirmed life on Earth was about published in a 1980 study, being 3.48 billion years old. This gave the advocates of biogenesis a nice cushion of 1.1 billion years for life to begin, for the Earth is some 4.55 billion years old. Indeed, they believed they had more then enough time. That finding was made nearly three decades ago. Then, in 2016, the month of September (less than a year ago from this day), the new oldest life on Earth was found. Indeed, published by several scientists named llen P. Nutman, Vickie C. Bennett, Clark R.L. Friend, Martin J. Van Kranendonk & Allan R. Chivas, a study was published to the journal Nature, detailing the discovery of the newest oldest life ever found on Earth, about 3.7 billion years old. This pushed back the oldest signs of life an astonishing 220,000,000 years, and therefore shaved away 220,000,000 years from the cushion that the advocates of abiogenesis had to account for the origins of life. But it gets even better.
On January 9th of this year, another study was published to Nature, pushing back the origins of life even further. Indeed, this study found potential microfossils that are, at the lastest about 3.77 billion years old, and at the earliest 4.28 billion years old. The abstract of this study states;
Here we describe putative fossilized microorganisms that are at least 3,770 million and possibly 4,280 million years old in ferruginous sedimentary rocks, interpreted as seafloor-hydrothermal vent-related precipitates, from the Nuvvuagittuq belt in Quebec, Canada.
In other words, life is known to have originated at least 3.8 billion years ago, and at best about 4.3 billion years ago. This means abiogenesis has lost it’s 1.1 billion year cushion, and now has is sitting on a rather uncomfortable 300-800 million years. These scientific findings came in under a single year, and have given another blow to the hypothesis of abiogenesis, making it even more difficult to explain. Anyways, God created all life on Earth, if that makes things a little more clear for everybody.
