It has become axiomatic that life naturally evolved out of nonliving materials billions of years ago. Given enough time and the chemical opportunity, living cells self-assemble.
However, the experts on the development of complex molecules from simpler ones, the synthetic chemists, do not know how this process actually occurs. There are no known pathways to create the components that make up a living cell from nonliving matter. They have no idea how amino acids (the building blocks of proteins and enzymes), nucleotides (the building blocks of DNA and RNA), saccharides (also called carbohydrates or sugars, the scaffolding for DNA and RNA, energy sources, and much more), and lipids (the main constituents of cell membranes) can be formed naturally on a prebiotic earth, especially before the formation of biological enzymes, to catalyze many of the requisite chemical reactions.
Life arising naturally out of nonliving materials not only cannot be proven, it contradicts synthetic chemistrys practices, which comprise of very strict purity and environmental controls as well as experimental and sequential methodologythe exact opposite of what happens in naturebecause contamination, water, sunlight, oxygen, heat, and impurities all degrade complex molecules or prevent them from forming.

The only way complex life can come into existence is to have a Creator create the plans for things the same way as a computer programmer creates the Object Types in a computer program. Then the Creator instantiates the types as real objects. The two creation stories in Genesis describe this process. Note: When the Object Types are created, they are ALWAYS GOOD! ;-)
A wild assumption with absolutely no basis for belief. It's like saying, "And then a miracle happened!"
Which is actually fine if you are both a Believer and a Scientist. But secular humanists, who see only a material world, should not be allowed to "do science" on the basis of "And then a miracle happened!"
Philosopher Gabriel Marcel often describes a mystery as a problem that encroaches on its own data (Marcel 1995, p. 19). Such a problem is, in fact, meta-problematic; it is a question in which the identity of the questioner becomes an issue itselfwhere, in fact, the questioner is involved in the question he or she is asking. Empirical science cannot answer such questions, there must be another way of answering. But scientism seeks to claim that any questions science can’t answer are invalid.
Sagan said that all the time “and then quite by accident, life appeared.” All that brain power and that’s the only conclusion he could draw.
Ask some atheist/secular humanist sometime:

“It has become axiomatic that life naturally evolved out of nonliving materials billions of years ago. Given enough time and the chemical opportunity, living cells self-assemble.”
I believe the reply is “God”.
The Almighty Hebrew God of the Holy Scritures spoke this all into reality from nothingness outside His Presence. And set schedules for everything.
I’m done parsing words and playing nice.
That's the same fallacy as "Given enough time and 100 chimpanzees with 100 typewriters will produce the plays of Shakespeare."........
Man goes to God and says, “We don’t need to you anymore, we can create Life from dirt just like you.”
God says, “Ok show me.”
The man picks up some dirt, when he’s suddenly interrupted by God, “No, go make your own dirt.”
And John 3:16...everything else is BS.
I’m in Savage Mode.
“Given enough time and 100 chimpanzees with 100 typewriters will produce the plays of Shakespeare.”........
They may not be able to produce Shakespeare but they sure are effective at producing DNC media talking points.
Yup. My understanding is that there are a great many reputable mathematicians (people who understand probability) who will tell you — “For that to happen, your 12 billion year old universe would have to be about a trillion times older.”
Imagine this. We go to a planet and find a working computer with a complex program running it. is the first thing scientists postulate is that these materials just self assembled and started working on its own?
Literally laughed out loud at that...f’ing classic
