Evolutionists have worked hard for decades to offer a logical evolutionary explanation for the origin of life and unsurprisingly their explanations have failed each and every time. Most recently, their ‘RNA world’ hypothesis failed spectacularly in another major disappointment for its supporters.
Evolutionists claimed that first, RNA emerged coincidentally in the primordial earth and then through entirely coincidental events, ultimately evolved into DNA. First of all, RNA is a very complex molecule with no room for coincidences in its construction. DNA, on the other hand, is a breathtakingly complex molecule, comprising of six billion letters that are placed exactly in the right location, with definitely no room for errors. To put things into perspective, let’s remember that an unwound DNA strand is four meters long, but can marvelously fit inside an incredibly small space (10 nanometers, or 10-6 m) even though it contains information equal to that is written on 1,000,000 encyclopedia pages. This is 40 times more information that the one found in world’s biggest encyclopedia, yet is stored in every one of your 100 trillion cells. Furthermore, in this massive databank, every letter has to be in the right place. In case of the slightest mistake, there will be no DNA and consequently no life.
For this reason, claiming that coincidences played a role in the construction of these flawless structures is ridiculous.
According to the fictitious tales of the evolutionists, after RNA ‘somehow’ came into being and supposedly turned into the DNA, ‘natural selection chose’ DNA because RNA had rather unstable structure and poor catalytic features. However, evolutionists have no answer as to why RNA was not eliminated by natural selection up to that point, despite its instability and generally poor catalytic features. Furthermore, primordial Earth was too harsh to allow for the formation of such sensitive molecules.
A recent study has revealed this truth one more time: A team of chemists from Scripps Research Institute in California decided to try a different approach to prove the RNA World hypothesis and used DNA-RNA chimeras to this end (RNA and DNA artificially joined in the lab).
However these chimeras had stability problems. Yet, unlike these chimeras that the scientists built in laboratory, in nature pure DNA and pure RNA could stay together. This incompatibility of the artificially joined RNA and DNA, compromised the molecules’ ability to hold and replicate genetic data.
In addition, in nature, if the RNA nuclease mistakenly joins a DNA strand in an organic structure, very sophisticated enzymes –which are proteins themselves- quickly fix the problem. However, such complex proteins could not have existed at that time, according to the RNA world hypothesis. Therefore, such a chimera, living only in the imagination of the evolutionists, would never survive in primordial Earth’s conditions.
Seeing the impossibility with the RNA world theory, the Scripps researchers admitted their problem and said, ‘These results point to the difficulties for the transition from one homogeneous system (RNA) to another (RNA/DNA) in an RNA world,”[i]
These findings actually confirmed what many other evolutionists found before. Biologist Jack Szostak, a Nobel Laureate, had already shown that when RNA and DNA are mixed, there would be a loss of function.
Then what was the suggestion of the Scripps researchers to this dilemma? Offering something even more impossible: They claim that the RNA and the DNA might have emerged in tandem. This actually was their acceptance of creation, because the only explanation for the emergence of these molecules at the same time in a miraculous manner, is that they are created by Almighty God.
DNA, RNA and proteins were created at once by our Almighty Lord. The fact that they cannot be built artificially despite all the guided, sensitive and controlled efforts and the expertise and knowledge of the scientists working to achieve it, clearly shows that they could have never emerged by chance in primordial Earth.
In other words, the evolutionist’s efforts to prove the RNA world one more time verified the fact of creation.
