Where did life come from?

The cell is the basis of all life. It has many life support systems. These systems are dependent on each other and cannot exist without each other.

One example is that cell walls are only made by enzymes. And yet the enzymes cannot do their job unless they are kept in place by the cell wall. It is difficult to see how the first cell appeared unless it was complete and fully functional. This implies it was created.

The laws of physics

The laws of physics are very precise. For example, the volume, pressure and temperature of the air in a car tyre are all interrelated in a very accurate way. When the temperature goes down by a certain amount, the pressure in a particular tyre will always go down by the same related amount.

The existence of these exact laws implies a "law giver".

The universe "seemed to know we were coming"

Well known writer Professor Paul Davies wrote in his book "The Goldilocks Enigma":

If almost any of the basic features of the universe, from the properties of atoms to the distribution of the galaxies, were different, life would very probably be impossible... a biofriendly universe looks like a fix - or 'a put-up job', to use the pithy description of the late British cosmologist Fred Hoyle. It appeared to Hoyle as if a super-intellect had been 'monkeying' with the laws of physics. He was right in his impression.

There are a large number of features about planet earth that are "just right" to support life. These critical things include:

  • distance from the sun
  • stability of the sun
  • size of the sun and earth
  • angle of axis tilt
  • speed of rotation
  • proportion of land and sea
  • composition of the atmosphere

It looks as though the universe and our earth have been "arranged" to support life.
