Pasteur’s Last Laugh On The Origin Of Life
About 150 years ago, many people, including scientists, believed in what was known as “spontaneous generation” of life. They would look at how mold or other organisms seemed to spontaneously generate in decaying material and they thought that by some mechanism life was being formed.
However, Louie Pasteur didn’t believe this was true. So in 1864, he conducted experiments to show that when all microorganisms were killed by sterilization (pasteurization), no life spontaneously generated. Pasteur said, “There is not a single known circumstance in which microscopic beings may be asserted to have entered the world without germs, without parents resembling them. Those who think otherwise have been deluded by their poorly conducted experiments, full of errors they neither knew how to perceive, nor how to avoid.”
Yet our public schools today teach our children that life arose by “spontaneous generation” from primordial ooze. Pasteur would be laughing at us. We should know better by now. Life begets life, always.
Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let us make people in our image, to be like ourselves …” So God created people in his own image; God patterned them after himself; male and female he created them.
