Quotes On Origin Of Life


"When it comes to the Origin of Life there are only two possibilities: creation or spontaneous generation. There is no third way. Spontaneous generation was disproved one hundred years ago, but that leads us to only one other conclusion, that of a supernatural creation. We cannot accept that on philosophical grounds; therefore, we chose to believe the impossible: that life arose spontaneously by chance!" George Wald: "The Origin of Life," Scientific American, 191:48, May 1954

"The more statically improbable a thing, the less we can believe it happened by blind chance. Superficially the obvious alternative to chance is an Intelligent Designer." Richard Dawkins Department of Zoology, Oxford University, in "The Necessity of Darwinism," New Scientist, April 15, 1982, p.130

Professor of Biology Edwin Conklin observed, "The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the Unabridged Dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop."

"Scientists have no proof that life was not the result of an act of creation." Robert Jastrow, The Enchanted Loom: Mind in the Universe (1981)

"With the failure of these many efforts, science was left in the somewhat embarrassing position of having to postulate theories of living origins which it could not demonstrate. After having chided the theologian for his reliance on myth and miracle, science found itself in the unenviable position of having to create a mythology of its own: namely, the assumption that what, after long effort, could not be proved to take place today had, in truth, taken place in the primeval past." Loren Eisley, The Immense Journey, (1957), p. 199

"Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe that was created out of nothing and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan." Physicist Arno Penzias, quoted by D.L. Brock in Our Universe: Accident of Design (Wits, S.Africa: Star Watch, 1992), p.42
