Origin of Life: Nature or Miracle?

Once I was listening to an NPR radio station and someone called in on the phone and asked the famous atheist, Richard Dawkins, where did life come from? He glibly replied “It was a happy chemical accident.” Then he and the show host went on as though the person was asking what flavor of jelly he prefers on his toast.

I was aghast at his answer. For years, I was inclined to categorize life’s origin as the furthest from a “chemical accident” as you could possibly get; a literal divine miracle. Honestly, I think that’s a better answer than “happy chemical accident” but, in time, I became dissatisfied with that too.

After the Unbelievable? show posted a discussion between Jeremy England and Paul Davies, they asked me to write a blog describing how I see this issue now as founder of the world’s largest science research award.

INFOGRAPHIC: 5 Most Popular Evolution Books are 40 Years Obsolete

The world’s 5 most popular evolution books are: College textbook Evolution by Douglas Futuyma; Selfish Gene, Extended Phenotype and Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins; and Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne.

Stage 4 cancer patients are not much better off today than in 1930 despite the US Government spending $250 billion on cancer research.1 We’re also losing the antibiotics arms race against bacteria. Bugs evolve into superbugs in minutes; we don’t adequately understand why.

These problems stem from an inadequate understanding of evolution. A prime reason cancer treatments fail is that tumor cells evolve at tremendous speed by a self-governing process. Chemotherapy and radiation often trigger more aggressive cancers because cells evolve actively; not passively, slowly or accidentally.

Yet today’s five best-selling popular evolution books say little about these high speed systems, omitting some of the most valuable discoveries of the last 100 years.
