As we proceed into the 21st century, secular scientists are still attempting to eke out a purely material explanation for the origin of the universe and life on this planet. They will not succeed.

New Scientist magazine is a popular British publication for scientist and layman alike. In July 2011, it asked “Why does the universe exist at all?” and “Why is there something rather than nothing?”1 Biblical explanations are not tolerated, of course, which leads evolutionists to suggest unsatisfying alternatives such as “perhaps the big bang was just nothingness doing what comes naturally.”2 But the supposed Big Bang itself has a host of problems.3 In fact, the most basic of all scientific laws—the law of cause and effect (no effect can be greater than its cause)—becomes so much rubbish if the cosmos is the product of chaos, appearing and then evolving by chance.

Not only that, but what is the universe made of? Secular science doesn’t know: “Trouble is, we still haven’t a clue what most of the stuff is made from.”4

Science reporter Amanda Gefter says, “It’s lucky you’re here.”5 But not surprisingly, the Bible teaches a purposeful creation with man created in God’s image to have dominion over the rest of creation (Genesis 1:26-28).

Attempted explanations of organic life springing from inorganic non-life (abiogenesis) fare no better. Currently, evolutionists envision a primeval molecule called an RNA (ribonucleic acid) replictor that somehow assembled itself in Darwin’s “primordial soup.” But there is no geologic evidence for this soup or for how such reactive nucleotides could begin to accumulate and organize themselves.

Indeed, Michael Marshall reported, “But there is still one huge and obvious problem: where did the RNA come from in the first place?”6 and “Life must have begun with a simple molecule that could reproduce itself.”7….
