Atlan 19: Piraten der Sterne (Blauband) eBook by H.G.


Francesco Redi by his experiments demonstrated that meat placed under a screen of muslin never developed maggots. The works of Schulze, Schwann, von Dusch and Schroeder provided significant challenges to heterogenesis, and finally in 1864 Louis Pasteur’s famous swan-neck flask experiment sounded the death knell for this theory. Pasteur famously stated that “ Never will the doctrine of spontaneous generation recover from the mortal blow of this simple experiment ”.[1]

Abiogenesis was popular for years as an explanatory theory of self-assembly as the starting point for chemical evolution. Recently however, the abiogenesis hypothesis has been experiencing critical shortcomings and rapid advancements in cellular biology have led biologists to seriously doubt the veracity of this hypothesis. The present article aims at summarizing a few crucial scientific facts, which are leading us towards a paradigm shift in our understanding of the ontogenesis of life.

Charles Darwin (1809 –1882) proposed an elucidation for life’s origin that complimented his evolution theory. In a famous letter[4] to his botanist friend Joseph D. Hooker in 1871, he stated

Consequently, numerous new speculations are attempting to provide different explanation for the location of the origin of life on earth. There are several suggestions ranging from life beginning in deep sea thermal vents to bacterial life arriving from other places in the universe (Panspermia). Some of these hypotheses may be more credible than others, but it is an astringent fact that scientists have no existent evidence about the possible location for the first life on earth. Science magazine also outspokenly substantiated that science has no concrete answer to the question of how and where did life on earth arise?[9]

Polymerization yields water molecules as one of the end products along with polymers. Le Chatelier’s Principle explains that the presence of a product (in present case, water) in the reaction medium will substantially slow the reaction. Darwinists proclaim that first life originated in water over a long span of time by a self-organization of molecules. The equilibrium concentration of biological polymers is sufficiently low and thus they have a propensity to break apart in water, not organize.[46] Consequently, an increase in time will only facilitate water to destroy the polymers. This crisis is one of the biggest headaches for the Darwinists.[49]

To overcome this problem, polymerization in primordial earth requires dehydration synthesis. Because, the polymerization process needs an input of energy, some researchers proposed heating as a means to get rid of the water. However, many researchers including Miller himself reported that a hot prebiotic environment would accelerate the breakdown of biological polymers and hence this is not a suitable option for primordial biochemical synthesis.[50],[51]
