Ludicrous Conclusion by Scientist

I have lately read a very interesting book by Ward and Brownlee entitled “Rare Earth.” The book is about the origins and life of the Earth. In it, the authors posit their belief that the factors that allow life of complex animals (including humankind) on Earth are so rare as to be practically impossible to reproduce elsewhere in the universe. They believe that very primitive life forms, such as bacteria and certain other one-celled organisms can probably live on other planets in the universe. However, they are convinced that complex life cannot exist on other planets in the universe. So far, so good. I can buy all that reasoning.

After describing all the complexity of animal and humankind development and all the factors that have allowed life to evolve on earth, the authors come to an astounding conclusion. They conclude that life so complex and of such a high order could not possibly have come about by means of an intelligent creator! !) They believe that all this interwoven and extremely complex world of ours must have come about by means of random chance and natural selection. It is unbelievable to me that such sophisticated and obviously skillful observers as these two could come to such a conclusion. I think the logical conclusion that would explain all this interactive complexity we see on the Earth would have had to arise as a result of a super-intelligent being. (Guess Who)

The authors point out that scientists have still not been able to synthesize a molecule of RNA or DNA. I would not be surprised to see, some day, that biochemists have finally synthesized that molecule; but of one thing I am sure: If scientists ever do accomplish this task, it will not be done as a matter of chance or “natural selection.” It will be accomplished by means of intelligence.
