claims, then how did life start? Did
the first living organism just come

(an idea known as abiogenesis)?
More and more scientists are ad-
mitting that there’s just too much
scientific evidence against abiogen-

even the evolution-based biology
and life science textbooks openly
admit that the work of Pasteur,
Spallanzani, and Redi disproved
abiogenesis. But if life did not
create itself, it had to come
