How Did Life Begin?

 

How would you complete the following sentence?

LIFE IS THE RESULT OF ․․․․․.

  1. EVOLUTION

  2. CREATION

SOME might assume that a scientifically-minded person would pick “evolution” and that a religious person would pick “creation.”

But not always.

The fact is, many educated people​—including a number of scientists​—question the validity of the theory.

Consider Gerard, a professor of entomology who was taught evolution at college. “When I took tests,” he says, “I would give the professors the answers they wanted​—but I did not believe it.”

Why is it that even some scientifically-minded people have trouble accepting evolution as the origin of life? To answer that, consider two questions that baffle many researchers: (1) How did life get its start? and (2) How did living things develop?
