Have scientists created life? What is the meaning of the famous “Miller-Urey Experiment,” which produced amino acids from a simulated primordial atmosphere? Could life begin by chance in a "primordial soup"? Evaluate the theory that life began on mineral or clay surfaces in the ocean, perhaps around hydrothermal vents. How have developments in chaos theory and emergent properties affected our understanding of the origin of life problem? Has life been found on Mars?

Creation Week Banner, Day 6
Examples of design in land animals and humans
What are the "Genesis kinds?" How do we account for predators, parasites and poisonous creatures if animals originally ate plants? Aren't there limits to how much species can change? What is the taxonomic unit that best represents the originally created kinds? Can species change rapidly enough to account for present biodiversity in a relatively short time? How do we explain the genetic and molecular similarities of humans and chimpanzees? What unsolved problems about change in species are of greatest interest?
