Meme: Evolution can't explain how life
This is a rather disingenuous
response. Once again we see evolutionists trying to hide the failure
of evolution to explain the origin of life behind definitions.
It is correct that Darwinian evolution necessarily begins with two
reproducing members of a species; without which natural selection
has nothing to select from. As noted neo-evolutionist
Theodosius Dobzhansky put it: "Prebiological natural selection is a
contradiction of terms." Put another
way: without pre-existing life, Darwinian evolution is impossible.
There are only two options for the origin of life: Either God
initiated it or some material process initiated without God's
intervention. The process apart from God - whatever the details may
be - is called
"evolution." Aside from these two options, there is no other option
for the origin of life. Darwinists
don't believe God initiated all life. Thus they are left with the
only other option - some process - typically called
abiogenesis - as the origin of life; but these terms are included as part of the
generic term "evolution". Thus to say "evolution"
doesn't attempt to explain the origin of life is to equivocate on
the meaning of the word "evolution": pointing to
Darwinian evolution while denying they believe in
Chemical evolution aka abiogenesis - which they must believe in to
explain the origin of life since they deny God's intervention.
Note also the propensity to claim evolution as a "fact" - another
equivocation on micro vs. macro evolution (see the
above meme on that).

9. Darwinists who are
purists are in view here, not those who are confused and believe in
10. When not trying to
hide the fact that evolution has no explanation for the origin of life,
evolutionists freely admit they have no idea how life originated. As one
documentary notes: "Man continues to seek answers to this extraordinary
mystery of 'How Life Began'"
