how did the life itself appear ? Let's leave the theory of the origin of life on
the Earth from any extraterrestrial
intrusions, as that which do not answer the question: how did life itself appear
?To be more exact, how did from the scientific point of
view from nonliving matter appear living one?
1864 the experiments of Louis Pasteur* proved
the impossibility of reproduction
of life by a lifeless matter. However in 1920 the theory of the Russian
scientific biochemist Alexander Oparin became
popular. It followed from this theory that the primary elements of the earth
transformed into a group of molecules under
the influence of a specific initial atmosphere, then - in larger molecules and
at last - in the first alive cell. Then these elementary molecular forms were
washed off in an ocean, where with the course of time, they joined with sugars,
acids and other components and formed proteins, DNA.
the middle of the 50th scientist Stanley Miller
decided to check up the correctness of Oparin`s theory. He made a laboratory
experiment simulating an atmosphere of a newborn planet. As a result of it a
reddish deposit was received which as Miller defined was rich of amino acids
-the basis of protein. Thus the theory proved the origin of life from lifeless
substances**. After Miller`s experiment other scientists unsuccessfully tried to
make proteins and DNA from the synthesized amino acids. Later it was proved that
from known 100 amino acids only 20 play the main role in the construction of
proteins and these two kinds of amino acids should be in the certain proportion
to each other otherwise proteins will not be formed therefore it was impossible
to get it during experiments. To make it clearer : the whole complex of New York
is less complicated than the device of the simplest microscopic cell. The chance
for an appropriate combination of molecules in amino acids, and then in proteins
with the properties of life as a result of an accident - is absolutely
impossible. And for
the scientists –atheists the question on the origin of life remains a puzzle.
Bible says that God « created everything what is on the ground and under the
ground all what is visible and invisible...
» (Col.1:16). There are many people who ask a question, how
were all the things created from nothing? In XVIII century the scientist Antoine-Laurent
a law –conservation of mass or matter
according to which any substance never loses its weight. In 1920 Encyclopedia
Britannica explained it in such a way: « a matter can neither be created nor
destroyed ». For example, the weight of ashes and gases received after burning
a paper in oxygen will be the same,
as the sum of the initial weight of the paper and oxygen.
the experiments with nuclear explosions showed that during an explosion of
supercritical mass of uranium different types of matter form but their combined
mass is less than that of the original uranium. Why the loss? It is because some
of the mass of the uranium was converted into an awesome flash of energy. So,
each second in the sun approximately 564 million tons of Hydrogen turn into 560
million tons of Helium .This means that 4
million tons of matter are transformed into solar energy.
return process, i.e. the transformation of energy into a matter is also
possible. The World Book Encyclopedia explains: «Energy
changes into matter when subatomic particles collide at high speeds and
create new heavier particles ». The scientists have already reproduced the
given experiment in some limited scale using
huge machines named “ as accelerators of particles ”.
«We’re repeating one of
the miracles of the universe – transforming
energy into matter », - explained Nobel laureate, physicist
Dr. Carlo Rubbia.
it is not difficult to understand how Creator –the
source of inexhaustible energy – created life on the Earth from
came from his name.
Many scientiests did not accept the Miller’s theory, so professor of Biology
Lynn Margulis wrote on this occasion: « a step
from a bacterium to a man is
lesser than a step
from a mixture of amino acids to that bacterium ».
