Our earth is obviously very well suited to sustaining organic life, but, significantly, it does not presently generate new forms of life. If new forms of life could today arise by chance, as many scientists aver must have happened originally, such life in its fragile initial stage would immediately be destroyed by the abundant presence of oxygen. (1)
And so, in order to explain how life on earth originally arose, science is forced to postulate a stage when there was no or very little oxygen and the “compounds essential for the origin of life” could have been formed (2). Clearly those compounds were very fragile. They must also have occurred simultaneously everywhere on earth, for everywhere we see life. Of course, that is impossible by chance.
What science is further driven to postulate in respect of the millions and millions of compounds involved is that they all, at substantially the same time, were ripe for the next stage of their development into plant and animal life, and that all had survived until that point. All of this too is impossible by chance.
There are further impossibilities. At exactly the point of transition from compound to organic life, which transition would have to occur simultaneously throughout the earth, abundant oxygen would have had to occur to sustain the new life. If it occurred too soon it would destroy the compounds; if it occurred too late all of the new life would die.
The cumulative effect of all these impossibilities is, overwhelmingly, that the only rational explanation for the ubiquitous existence of organic life is a Creator.
