    and understand living things and physical phenomena through experimentation. The last concept mentions that neither living organisms nor the physical universe is static (p. 22-23). The genesis of life has two approaches, abiogenesis (naturalistic) and interventionist. The abiogenesis approach takes on the stance that each life process needs a particular molecule which is created from several machines in order to create a living cell. Brand gave an example of the ATP synthase structure and the biomolecular

    A natural start to life: Aristotle, a famous philosopher, believed in the notion of spontaneous generation, the idea that life could arise from inanimate objects. Louis Pasteur famously dispelled this theory, when he showed that organisms will only arise if the parental species is initially present in a closed system. However, this conclusion relates to the generation of new organisms from parental ones, not the origin of life itself. The first “organism” had no “parental” species, therefore the

    Although both abiotic synthesis and the deep-sea vent hypotheses argue the environment of a primordial-Earth was required for the origin of life, the two hypotheses have their differences. In general, the abiotic synthesis hypothesis describes the process of how organic compounds can be created from inorganic compounds, while the deep-sea vent hypothesis argues a possible scenario where life may have originated from inorganic compounds. While the term “primordial soup” has been used to describe abiotic

    Victor Frankenstein travels to Ingolstadt to study. Once there, he was stuck to the sciences and especially for chemistry. He reads all the books he could come over and going at all lectures in the subject. In the end, one thing that interests him most and is the body's structure and origin of life's principles are based. He studies the anatomy and he gets very interested in death to thus get answers about the origins of life. After some time, he finds that he is inclined to give life to inanimate

    The role of god in science At this point in the modern world, there are two main sides of the scientific world; those that believe in intelligent design, or those that believe in physicalism. Intelligent design is the belief that the earth was intelligently designed. Physicalism is the belief that the real world only consists of only the physical world. This is a real world conflict and it is a very controversial topic. This conflicts creates other problems as well; including the problem that some

Primordial soup hypothesis: Life began about three and a half billion years ago when amino acids lead to the beginning of life in a body of water. Alexander Oparin in 1924. The chemicals were like “soup” and mixed together to make proteins. There was an experiment that showed that organic molecules could be formed from non-organic atoms

    The thesis of this paper is that possibly finding life on Europa, likely in the future, will illuminate the origins of life on Earth but will likely cause conflict for some subcultures as well.

    Michael Behe describes intelligent design as a logical explanation for the things we see in nature, especially with regard to living things, being created by a powerful, hyper-intelligent Creator. He stands to reason that biological components of even the ‘simplest’ cells possess features that are entirely too “irreducibly complex” to have come about by slow, gradual naturalistic processes, and would require the intervention and handiwork of Someone who could build such structures. Even unimaginably

    added. The logical explanation behind this conclusion relates to the acidity of the ancient primordial sea in which these coacervates would be found. According to the theory of abiogenesis, the ancient primordial sea is thought to have been slightly acidic due to the concentration of carbon dioxide in the water. Abiogenesis is “the idea that life arose from nonlife more than 3.5 billion years ago on Earth,” and it proposes that “the first life-forms generated were very simple and through a gradual
