Evolution Sinks to a New Low
As scientists search for water and evidence of life on Mars, other scientists are plumbing the depths of the ocean to get to the bottom of the questions: how and where did life begin? According to a paper being published today in Nature, the seafloor – once considered to be a barren plain – is teeming with microbial life, leading scientists to believe that this may be where life first began.
USC geomicrobiologist Katrina Edwards and colleagues found thousands of times more bacteria on the seafloor than in the water above. ScienceDaily reports that the newfound abundance of seafloor microbes makes it theoretically possible that early life thrived – and maybe even began – on the seafloor.
While Creation Moments supports the exploration of space and the ocean depths, scientists are on a futile quest if they're looking in those places for the origin of life. Yes, they can search high and low, but the only true answers can be found in the Bible. In fact, the answer is right there on the very first page!
