For example, I have before me a book titled DARWIN IN THE GENOME, by Lynn Helena Caporale
She holds impeccable credentials, with a Ph. D. from the University of California; in addition, she has taught at New York University, Kettering Cancer Center, and Georgetown University.
However, no where in scientific writings do I find scientists and skeptics requiring her
to explain where or how life began before the evolutionary process that she
describes, could take place.
The very first sentence of her
PREFACE reads: "Long ago, consciounsness began to emerge within life on earth.
The first sentence of her
PROLOGUE states: "There was a moment in time when the dust itself edged, in slow motion, over a boundary into life."
Therefore, even though many skeptics accuse the believer of not offering good evidence and reasons for their belief in a Grand Designer, Dr. Caporale
launches into her
sermon on the evolutionary development of genes without a trace of evidence that dust can become alive though the magic of time.
offers no reason and no support for such an Alice-In-Wonderland position.
