A Review of Exobiogenesis Theories

Jerry Bergman, Ph.D

Many evolutionists have concluded that all existing naturalistic origin of life hypotheses are highly untenable. Consequently, some prominent evolutionists have hypothesized an alternate origin of life theory called exobiogenesis, or the theory that life evolved elsewhere in the universe and was carried to earth. Those who reject both the theistic world view and the possibility of abiogenesis on the ancient earth must assume that conditions existed elsewhere in the solar system or the universe which were more favorable for the origin of life or biological molecules. Recognizing that conditions on earth historically precluded the spontaneous origin of life forces exploring exobiogenesis to maintain the naturalistic world view. This view has also motivated the reintroduction of an intelligent design theory called directed panspermia. Nowhere does the literature reveal as vividly the impossibility of a naturalistic origin of life on the earth than in this field. The fact that an entirely hypothetical scenario has been proposed in a theory which is supported by virtually no empirical evidence forces a review of the major exobiogenesis theories.

Stone Mountain, Georgia: A Creation Geologist’s Perspective

Carl R. Froede, Jr., B.S., P.G

Stone mountain has an exposed granitic pluton, located in Northeast Georgia. Uniformitarian estimates suggest that the granite was intruded into overlying metamorphic rocks during the last stages of the Alleghenian Orogeny. Later the mountain became exposed at the earth’s surface. The uniformitarian model for the formation of Stone Mountain remains unsolved. This paper presents an interpretation, using the young earth Flood model, for the origin of Stone Mountain which would predict its formation and exposure during the Flood event.

Fossil wood of Big Bend National Park, part IV: Wood Structure, Nodules, Paleosols, and Climate

E.L. Williams, Ph.D.; G.F. Howe, Ph.D.; G.T. Matzko, Ph.D.; R.B. White, B.A.; and W.G. Stark, A.S.

The various charcoalified and petrified wood samples collected from the Dawson Creek region of the Big Bend National Park were examined optically and by scanning electron microscopy. Possible past climatic change in the Big Bend region is discussed.

Physiological Evidence for Creation

D.A. Kaufmann, Ph.D.

A brief review of the academic discipline of physiology is given, including a discussion of similarities: 1) of design and function in organelles and organs; 2) between the negative feedback mechanisms of the heating-cooling systems of our houses and of our bodies; and 3) of the homeostatic functions of a giant airport and our body’s hormonal system. Six body systems are examined with respect to their precise, purposeful functions. A look at the evolutionary beliefs of physiologists, and at vitalism versus mechanism reveals that evolutionism is on unstable foundations. The exceptional arrangement and precise operation of its physiological systems clearly indicate that the human body was created by a Divine Designer, and raise serious doubts about whether such systems could have arisen by chance.
