Astrobiology’s Fantasy Universe

The media glosses over difficulties in its blind quest to look for the 'emergence' of life on other planets.

Abiogenesis: The Origin of Lie

To get life from mindless molecules, fib a little. Ignore chance. Make it sound easy. Turn out the lights. Tell a story. Imagine.

Secularists Battle Over Which Life Theory Is More Wrong

Origin-of-life camps don't recognize that RNA-World theories and hydrothermal-vent theories suffer from the same basic problem.

OOL Without Bluffing Is Nothing

Count the hopeful "could" words in a speculative NASA Astrobiology myth.

Barbiturates in Darwin's Warm Little Pond

Are barbituates the missing links to the origin of life?

Minimal Cell Challenges Naturalism

Origin of life theorists face a much higher "Mount Improbable" seeing a minimal cell with 473 genes.

Fossils that Defy Old Ages

Here are three things assumed to be old that look young. It's only the presumption of old age that forces the claims of millions of years.

Origin-of-Life Speculation Goes Off the Rails

Astrobiologists and their accomplices in the media are finding life everywhere where it isn't or couldn't be. Time to call in the science rangers.

New Thoughts on Habitable Planets

Astrobiologists are trying to standardize the requirements for habitable planets. Do they get them all?

Primordial Soup as a Wizard's Potion

Certain concepts in materialistic origin of life seem to have more to do with witchcraft than reputable science.

Astrobiolo-SETI: Science or Fantasy?

Fantastical scenarios with no evidence – sometimes contrary to evidence – continue to get good publicity in science venues.

Origin of Life Faces Four Paradoxes

One show-stopper is enough, but a veteran origin-of-life researcher acknowledges four paradoxes in origin-of-life research that have never been solved.

Evolutionary Origin-of-Life Speculations Contradict Each Other

Good scientific approaches should converge on the truth. In secular origin-of-life studies, theories run off in all directions, often crashing into one another.

Findings That Comport With Genesis

The history of the world and its life could hardly be more different between the Bible's account and that of modern evolutionary naturalism. Some recent scientific reports fit with a designed, recent creation, and do not fit with evolution.

Mars Panspermia a Sign of Desperation

A second article proposes life began on Mars, prompting some observers to point out the failures of naturalistic origin-of-life theories.

You Are Not a Martian

Every once in awhile, someone "suggests" that life began on Mars, not Earth. Here it comes again from someone who knows better.

OOL Follies: Evolutionists Ignore the Obvious Questions

In origin-of-life (OOL) research, any partial solution seems good enough, even if the big questions go unanswered.

Two Houdini Escapes in Origin-of-Life Speculations

Serious challenges to naturalistic origin of life theories (OOL) are wiggled out of magically in two pro-evolution articles.

Origin-of-Life Researchers Excited Over Nothing

The phrase "building blocks of life" is pregnant with misinformation.

Origin of Life Made Easy

As anyone knows who has been given directions and told “you can’t miss it,” sounding easy and being easy can be entirely different things. Reporters sometimes make the most difficult step in evolution – the origin of life – look like a cinch through the use of suggestive metaphors, like the commonly-invoked phrase, “building blocks of life.” The directions in their articles usually lead to dead ends at worst, or, at best, baby steps on a long march, most of the route TBD, a TLA (three letter acronym) meaning “to be determined.”

OOLs for Evolution

Soviet communists may or may not have needed Rules for Revolution, but Darwinists, without doubt, need OOLs for Evolution: i.e., origin-of-life scenarios. Obviously, Darwinian evolution won’t get past square one without a self-replicating system complex enough to call “life” in place. Whether or not a given evolutionist is a Marxist materialist or a theistic Darwinist, OOL is a key link in the naturalistic dream of an unbroken chain of natural causes from big bang to man. It’s proving a tough link to find.

Leslie Orgel’s Last Testament: Pigs Don’t Fly, and Life Doesn’t Just Happen

Leslie Orgel's last written article before his death shows no patience for hypothetical scenarios for the origin of life.

Don’t PNA in our OOL

Theories for the origin of life (OOL) are in a crisis, unable to imagine how something as complex as a replicating cell could come into existence. Could PNA do it?
