Yes, I do have reason to doubt this.
The complex chemical compounds found in living things could not be made in the presence of oxygen. There is NO place in the world where they could be
made, except within living cells. Each cell organizes which parts will not have oxygen, so the compounds can be made there. Aside from this, there are
plenty of other points that should be made to counter the whole "religion of evolution" belief system -
1. There is no evidence Earth ever had a non-oxygen atmosphere.
2. There is no explanation of how oxygen could have even been kept out of our atmosphere for long periods, then suddenly placed inside of it.
3. Geologists have found oxidized rocks (containing rusted iron) that were supposed to have existed when life was still forming and the atmosphere was
supposed to have no oxygen.
4. It is known that there were oceans and seas back then. This is the possible explanation, or the "medium" in which life must have been made - the
"primordial soup" - except water also requires an oxygen atmosphere and itself is 1/3 oxygen.
5. As soon as living creatures would have arrived, it would have had to have oxygen in order to survive - yes, you cannot have oxygen to create life,
but life requires oxygen to lie.
6. An atmosphere without oxygen would not have the protective ozone layer required to sustain life, by protecting it from UV rays.
7. An atmosphere with oxygen would have deadly peroxides, which would kill life forms.
8. An instant atmospheric change (mentioned in point 2, of which we have no explanation for), example non-oxygen to oxygen, would be required the
MOMENT even one living creature was formed. For each life form. Lol!
And we have also never been able to create life - some people will mention the Miller Experiment. He succeeded only in creating a few random amino
acids in a red gel that was mostly toxic, and didn't even have the fully required amount of amino acids that we have today.
