Modern Myth # 1 — Life Produced Itself

As ancient and tribal societies have had their myths and their gods, even so, our modern society has its myths and its gods. Our contemporary gods my not be thought of in human form like the Greek and Roman gods, yet our modern myths powerfully impact our culture.  I am going to post a series of blogs about myths we moderns believe.

Modern myth #1 is: A one-celled life form created itself and all other life forms on earth evolved from it.

This idea is so far fetched that it is difficult to imagine that it is widely accepted in an intelligent society. However, in reality, if you don’t agree with this myth you are considered “unscientific” or “unintelligent”. It is the only theory of the origin of life allowed in American public schools.

But where is the proof? There is none. No one can show scientific proof that life can create itself. No one has ever created life in a science lab, even under the most favorable conditions possible. So if highly intelligent human beings cannot create life, how is life supposed to have come into existence by itself?

Without proof, the idea of life being self-produced from non-living matter is only a theory.  So why is this theory baptized as “scientific,” presented as fact, and made the official faith of America, while other ideas about the origin of life are forbidden in our class rooms?

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
