I’m Curious (Looking for an Evolutionist/Atheist Viewpoint)
Posted by iwanttofitin on April 17, 2007
I came across this quote in something I was reading the other day and it struck my interest. Now for me, it is understandable and I get it. But, since I’m not either an evolutionist or an atheist or anything similar, I am curious to know what a response would be to that. There are many, I’m sure. From my previous joke posts on evolution, I’ve been shown there are many of you who have ventured into my blog and here’s something else for you to comment on. Please enlighten me.
The question “How did life originate?” which interests all of us, is inseparably linked to the question “Where did the information come from?” Since the findings of James D. Watson . . . and Francis H. C. Crick, it was increasingly realized by contemporary researchers that the information residing in the cells is of crucial importance for the existence of life. Anybody who wants to make meaningful statements about the origin of life would be forced to explain how the information originated. All evolutionary views are fundamentally unable to answer this crucial question.
