Evolutionists Do Not Understand the Origin of Life

Renowned Chemist Says Evolutionists Do Not Understand the Origin of Life

October 13, 2014 | ChristianNews.net | By: Garrett Haley

A prominent chemist who was recognized this year as one of the 50 most influential scientists in the world says most scientists do not understand how evolution could explain the existence of life.

Dr. James Tour is a well-known professor at Rice University, specializing in chemistry, nanoengineering, and computer science. Over the last 30 years, Tour has authored over 500 research publications, and he was recognized as one of “The 50 Most Influential Scientists in the World Today” by TheBestSchools.org. Tour has also received awards and recognitions from the American Chemical Society, Thomson Reuters, Honda, NASA, and others.

In a video released in late 2012, Tour explained that he has had extensive experience studying the origin of life.

“I will tell you as a scientist and a synthetic chemist,” Tour said, “if anybody should be able to understand evolution, it is me, because I make molecules for a living, and I don’t just buy a kit, and mix this and mix this, and get that. I mean, ab initio, I make molecules. I understand how hard it is to make molecules.”

You Can Answer The Harshest Critic You’ll Ever Face

Dear Michael,

Let me tell you why every church needs to care about apologetics—about defending the faith—other than that Scripture commands it, Jesus and the apostles practiced it, and it works. (I’ll set those points aside for now.)

Ask yourself a question: If you had Jesus standing beside you at this moment—not spiritually present, but really, physically there—would it have an impact on how you live?  Do you think your conduct would be different? Would it affect your sense of peace and confidence in God’s control over your life? Would it rid you of timidity and fill you with boldness?
