Life on Earth came from other planets. So concludes a major scientific article which will appear in the inaugural issue of the online science journal, Cosmology.com
For thousands of years scientists and theologians have debated the origins of Earthly life. Surprisingly, most scientists and the Catholic Church are of the same mind and embrace the theory of "abiogenesis" also known as the "organic soup."
In the Judeo-Christian Bible, the story of Genesis, it is stated: "And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so." As summed up by Church Father St. Augustine: "The earth is said then ... to have received the power of producing life," which is also the belief of many modern-day scientists. Therefore, both the Church and most scientists believe that in the beginning the Earth had special powers to generate life.
There is, however, no evidence to support the theory of "abiogenesis," which has been repeatedly disproven and discredited. Every attempt to create life from non-life has miserably failed and up until now every theory proposed to explain the origin of life has been found wanting. The early Earth lacked all the essential ingredients for creating life, and even so called "prebiotic" substances would have been immediately destroyed by the harsh conditions which initially prevailed on this planet.
As summed up in a scientific paper to be published in the premier issue of Cosmology.com: "If life were to suddenly
appear on a desert island we wouldn't claim it was randomly assembled in an organic soup or created by the hand of God; we'd conclude it washed to shore or fell from the sky. The
Earth too, is an island, orbiting in a sea of space, and living creatures and their DNA have been washing to shore and falling from the sky since our planet's creation
