    This made me think of this.How did life originate? Evolutionist Professor Paul Davies admitted, “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.” Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard, said, “we don’t really know how life originated on this planet”. A minimal cell needs several hundred proteins. Even if every atom in the universe were an experiment with all the correct amino acids present for every possible molecular vibration in the supposed evolutionary age of the universe, not even one average-sized functional protein would form. So how did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?

      Whatever the answer … it’s amazing.

      Genesis 1:20-22:Then God said: Let the waters swarm with living creatures, and let the flying creatures fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens. And God created the great sea creatures and all living creatures that move and swarm in the waters according to their kinds……..And God saw that it was good. With that God blessed them…….
