We hear a common argument from biblical literalists that life cannot arise spontaneously from nothing, as if the world before life was but a vast void of amorphous chaos with no rhyme or reason, no form, no laws of nature. Nothing. However, geology suggests otherwise. Can anyone logically call this nothing?
Other than the snowflakes, these are all minerals. They are not alive. Yet they look remarkably similar to living material. Let’s compare even further:
I could go on and on with comparisons like these. Are they just mere coincidences? Or is there more going on here than meets the casual eye? It appears the laws of nature required for initiating life were well in place long before life ever came about. All of the minerals, including the water, are highly organized crystals, a combination of chaos and order, just like life, itself. In fact, viruses, proteins, DNA and other biomolecules can be crystallized themselves.
