Area 51 and the Origin of Life

You might be one of those Darwinist fools who imagines that life has some kind of natural explanation. If so, then you really need to pay attention to the latest post at the creationist blog of the Discovery Institute, It’s titled Physicist Brian Miller: Nanotech, Origin of Life, and Area 51, and it has no author’s by-line.

You’re wondering why Area 51 is in their title, aren’t you? Be patient, all will be revealed. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

On a new episode of ID the Future [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!] physicist Brian Miller and host Eric Anderson continue their exploration of a recent conversation between origin-of-life investigators Jeremy England and Paul Davies on Justin Brierley’s Unbelievable? show.

It sounds like the Discoveroids had an earlier post on whatever they’re babbling about, but we missed it and they don’t link to anything. It doesn’t matter. They say:

Miller begins with a quick survey of the many nanotechnologies essential to even to the simplest viable cell. A minimally complex cell is vastly more sophisticated than our best human nanotechnology.

You know you can rely on Miller’s opinions because a month ago we wrote about his brilliant contributions to the Discoveroids’ work — see Natural Origin of Life Is Decisively Debunked! The Discoveroid post then tells us:

What about England’s insistence that real progress has been made in origin-of-life studies since the 1950s? True, Anderson says, but the progress has been principally in better understanding how the simplest cells function, and in figuring out what doesn’t work to blindly evolve life from non-life. That is, the direction of discovery has been to throw cold water on one idea after another for the naturalistic origin of life.

Scientists who think they’re making progress are nothing but fools! The Discoveroid post continues:

Miller then makes an even bolder statement. [Gasp!] All the physics for us to have known this were in place more than a hundred years ago. [What?] The origin-of-life community just chose to ignore it, perhaps because they were dogmatically wedded to finding a purely materialistic explanation for the origin of the first life.

A hundred years, and nothing? Darwinists are really pathetic! In the Discoveroids’ final paragraph, they cleverly bring in Area 51 from their title:

To show why that’s misguided, Miller offers an illustrative story: Imagine that what looks for all the world like an alien spaceship is discovered in the desert. Two groups of scientists decide on radically different approaches to understanding the workings of this mysterious object. Tune in to hear the rest of the story. Download the podcast or listen to it here. [Link omitted!]

After all that, do you still think the origin of life has a natural explanation? Really? Then you gotta be an idiot! Isn’t it time you accepted the supernatural explanation of the Discoveroids? Life is the creation of the intelligent designer — blessed be he!

  1. The analogies for design of life so often turn out to be self-defeating. They point out that all of the designs that we have any experience with fall so short of the complexities of the the simplest life.

  2. About the physics of 100 years ago.
    In 1921, there was no idea of the overwhelming abundance of hydrogen and helium in the universe. What was the best guess of the size of the universe – it was not reaized that “spiral nebulae” were many millions of light years distant. It was generally accepted that the universe was infinitely old – maybe there was no beginning of life! Of course there was no evidence, one way or the other, whether there were planets of other stars. One could believe that there was life on Venus.

  3. Physicist Brian Miller. I never heard of a guy with the first name Physicist before. His parents must have been either really weird or really cool.

  4. Do these guys ever re-read what they just wrote? – “The origin-of-life community . . . dogmatically wedded to finding a purely materialistic explanation for the origin of the first life.”
    As opposed to scientists who have a handy device in THEIR toolkit: Supernatural stuff did it! No need for ‘materialistic’ stuff when you have a super power who did it. (No need, actually, for – what’s it called again? – science or research).

  5. We know it was their god because

    1) You can’t have something from nothing except for their god.
    2) It wasn’t another god because their god doesn’t create other gods… because it doesn’t. So it couldn’t have been another god that their god created.
    3) It can make donkeys talk, and there are many “begets”.
