Every species of living thing can make a copy of itself by exchanging energy and matter with its surroundings. One feature common to all such examples of spontaneous “self-replication” is their statistical irreversibility: clearly, it is much more likely that one bacterium should turn into two than that two should somehow spontaneously revert back into one.

Sorry to be a bore, but there are at least two threads on this subject already.
One of them was started by me (ahem).

How can we be so sure that this isn't Gods way of creating life?
God isn't some man in a cloud, God is woven into the very fabric of the universe. Maybe life forms without religious gods but not without the true God.

I don't see any new science here, nor anything for anyone to be scared of.

Religious fundies won't be worried about a scientific theory. Myth is untouchable and therefore perfect. That's the attraction.

The title is cute.......Christian right........
Like Christians and the "right" are the only ones that believe in a God.......like there arent how many other religions out there?
Even spiritualists believe in a creator.........so do Pagans, Hindus, Muslims etc etc etc.......
Pretty interesting what this guy has to say. I think the gist of what this guy is saying is that the Universe itself is life and that it's already conducive to create living things, and that life on Earth probably started at several places and not in just one place. Pretty cool idea. I had a similar idea years ago when I was speculating on the origin(s) of life. Still cool though. What says ATS?
