Early bioenergetic evolution

Their definition of life:
"The harnessing of chemical energy in such a way
that the energy-harnessing device makes a copy of itself
."

Most definitions of life do not take into account the evolutionary steps
that led from inorganic matter evolving into organisms that we recognize as alive.
This definition, however, recognizes that life is a process:
it is just one direction that the evolution of matter can take.

1953

When Stanley Miller created amino acids from inorganic compounds
in his lab in 1953, the religious world went nuts.
For over 60 years they have furiously and desperately fought back
with feeble and humiliating attempts to discredit his discovery.

Well, it's time for Ghost Worshipers to go nuts again.
In addition to Miller's work, they will now have to tackle this new discovery:
amino acids can also be created by comet and meteor impacts.

This is the best example you will ever get,
of the logical fallacy known as "Moving the Goalposts."
Creationists are forced to retreat ever further each time science advances.
The goalposts are no longer on the field; they have been moved into the stands,
out of the stadium, and are currently located somewhere outside the state.
Yet they will never give up.
They will go to their graves holding on to their childish, ancient fairy tales.

Pascal asked "what have they got to lose ?"

Nothing; if you don't mind living, the only life you will ever know ...

Another abiogenesis breakthrough ... "Urzymes"

Scientists continue to zero-in on the origins of life,
and every time they do ... the Bible fades ever farther into oblivion.

Yet another abiogenesis model enters the race: proteins before RNA

I emailed the author, Michael Blaber, and he clarified one statement in the article
regarding the contribution of green plant life to the Earth's atmospheric oxygen,
by adding that plants would have contributed to an 'increase' in atmospheric oxygen
which was already present as a result of the Great Oxygenation Event, 2 billion years earlier.
