The Origin of Life
“Life is miraculous. Life is wonderful. Life is both mysterious and majestic. Life is to be valued, protected, and conserved. One’s view of life matters—a lot!” -Dr. Morris (CEO of the Institute of Creation Research)
There are many different theories on the origin of life. There is evolution theory, the process where different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth. There is the primordial soup theory, a solution rich in organic compounds in the primitive oceans of the earth, where life is thought to have originated. There is the Big Bang Theory, theory that the universe originated sometime between 10 billion and 20 billion years ago from the violent explosion of a small volume of matter at extremely high density and temperature. There is also the “theory” of Creationism. According to Wikipedia, Creationism is the religious belief that , humanity, life, the earth, and the universe are the creation of a supernatural being, most often referring to the Abrahamic God.
In my personal opinion, I believe in Creationism. I believe this because all of the scientific and humanistic theories are nothing but theories. They are mere guesses on what scientists THINK happened millions and billions of years ago. With the belief of Creationism, there is so much evidence that points to a supernatural power as being in charge. Ancient cosmogonies assume that a creation of chaos to order. Some scientists even assume that it happened repeatedly over unimaginable time periods of life. Many scientists believe in the Big Bang Theory. They live by the idea that “something evolves out of nothing” which is a common view in some ancient near-eastern civilizations. In Ecclesiastes 1:10-11a , King Solomon says, “Is there any thing of which one might say, 'See this, is it new?' Already is has existed for ages which were before us. There is no remembrance of earlier things...” (NASB)...
