CREATION: The Miller Experiment (Part 2)

Today, we’re talking about apologetic evidence from creation. Many evolutionists cite Stanley Miller’s 1953 experiment, which supposedly created life in the laboratory by mixing chemicals and zapping them with electricity, as proof life arose spontaneously. But there’s a BIG PROBLEM with the experiment.

You see, the structure of amino acids comes in two forms: the “left-handed” and “right-handed” varieties.  Every time (without exception) that Miller and later scientists produced amino acids in the lab, equal numbers were left-handed and right-handed. The reason that’s a problem is because every living thing is only made up of “left-handed” amino acids. A 50-50 mix could never produce life. This obviously leaves modern scientists stumped as to how life could have ever formed randomly.

And the answer to that is … drum roll please … IT COULDN’T! Think about it … it actually makes far more sense to believe GOD created all things like the Bible says than to believe life happened randomly.

Another event, the Cambrian Explosion, gives us even more great evidence for creation, but we’ll address that another time. Until then, find more apologetic resources at Stay bold!
