    I`m sure if we hit peanut butter with radiation something would happen to it. Although, any sterilization processes would kill organisms attempting to live, wouldn`t they? Hey, wasn`t this the plot to The Blob?

    Yes, I know we all know the answer, but I still have to say it...

    random floating molecules collide with other random floating molecules and very rarely but occasionally create an organism that can self-replicate. It doesn`t happen often though, and when it does the lifeform usually dies out within a millionth of a second. Simply LOOKING at a jar of peanut butter and expecting something to just pop out at you is just... silly?

    Has there ever been anyone who argued against evolution *and who knew what it is*?

    Actually, that`s a silly question. Anyone who did so would be as insane as someone who argued against, for example light, as evolution is as obvious as light. Evolution isn`t a theory, it`s an observation. The theory of evolution is a theory explaining the observation.

    So...has there ever been anyone who argues against the theory of evolution and who knows what it is?

    These people are arguing against abiogenesis, which is a completely different theory. Although they obviously don`t understand that theory either.

    The sad thing is that they are good at propaganda and may well con some people with it.

    If I bought a jar of peanut butter today, opened it and expected life to just pop out of it in less than a day I wouldn`t be disproving evolution. I`d be acting like an idiot. Besides, evolution works slowly like "one million years at a time" slowly in some cases.

    Just in case anyone thinks these people, who are either liars or fools, are making a rational counter-argumnent to the theory of abiogenesis, here`s a link explaining what the theory actually is:

    Actual theory compared with creationist lies about it.

    In all of this bear in mind that the theory of abiogenesis has absolutely nothing to do with the theory of evolution and that the theory of evolution is not evolution. Evolution is, absolutely and unequivocally, a fact.

    So they`re creating a fake theory of abiogenesis that they know is wrong, pretending that disproves the actual theory of abiogenesis, pretending that disproves the theory of evolution and pretending that disproves evolution and every one of their pretences is ludicrous.

    There isn`t complete evidence for the theory of evolution (although there is a hell of a lot of evidence, far more than would be necessary to consider something proven in day to day life).

    I don`t think we have more evidence for evolution than for gravity, but I think dog-breeding should be enough evidence but whatever. And did he examine every single bacteria in the peanut butter before coming to the conclusion that there is no new life in his peanut butter?

    Yes, but that would have been introduced from outside. It`s life breeding, not life appearing.

    The actual theories of abiogenesis and evolution would have maybe a billion years between the two. Maybe more.

    I love how Christians constantly try to use the scientific method to prove their beliefs. Science and Religion are pretty much mutually exclusive. They must be incapable of interpreting time over 6,000 years. I can`t believe we are this socially and technologically advanced and still praying to an invisible man that is worried if you play with yourself or say a bad word.

    They need to get their facts straight before they start bashing evolution. Evolution is change in a population`s allele frequency over time. It has virtually nothing to do with "heat" and "energy".

    Too bad an ant isn`t going to evolve in five minutes. You know, perhaps random new single celled organisms have evolved in peanut butter, but were promptly eaten before the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF YEARS it takes to evolve into anything visible.

    Peanut Butter typically lasts for about two years. Evolution takes millions-billions of years.

    That`s like saying that you bought a puppy and raised it, but it never turned into a wolf.

    The food industry doesn`t rely on the fact that evolution doesn`t exist- it relies on the fact that life cannot exist in a vacuum.

    Leave that peanut butter sealed for 3-5 years and there WILL be life in it...

    Evolution deniers are morons...

    I am by no means an atheist, but it really gets under my skin when people make arguments against something, and they have no idea what they are taking about (I am looking at you crakrjak). What does an engineer know about biochemical processes? Here is something to think about: Science has proved that basic organic monomers can arise from basic elements and lightning. Science also shows it is entropically favorable for most proteins and lipids to aggregate in water to minimize its contact. Aggregation of proteins and nucleic acids within an aggregation of lipid is essentially the most basic of cells. My point being, don`t try to disprove a scientific evidence if you don`t know what the hell you are talking about.

    The guy in the beginning says "Any theory of the origin of life on this planet or any other one for that matter is a fairy tale."
    creationism still says that life originated from this planet therefore that guy says that his beliefs are a fairy tale.
    I am a creationist but i prefer st. thomas aquinas`s proofs and st. anselm`s ontological proof over the peanut butter proof.

    "I still fail to see how God cannot coexist with evolution."

    That`s a simple one Jason.

    You see, the entire Christian religion is based on the Bible. The Bible does not mention evolution; instead it mentions "intelligent design". It describes "God" as putting Adam and Eve, in human form, onto the Earth.

    The very core of Christian beliefs, is the reason that God and Evolution can`t exist. The one cancels out the other. If you believe in Evolution, then the Bible is false and then what are you basing your religious beliefs on?

    Sorry my friend. It`s science and reason vs. magic and fear.

    iseeingi2i, usually it doesnt start off as insulting. but when someone refuses to believe in facts and then tries to push a story back at you, maybe a little insult does roll off the tongue every now and then. i know because of countless arguments with my brother.

    evolution: yes, yes there is proof.
    creationism: no, no there is no proof. or evidence of that matter.

    Amazing that people think this guy is an idiot for this non-evolving peanut butter skit. So it`s ok that he believes in a megolomaniacal murderous narcissistic insecure deity... which apparently is ok, then he says something stupid about evolution and peanut butter and just NOW he`s an idiot???

    I don`t even see how the Theory of Evolution isn`t a Law. I mean, it makes more sense than gravity does. It`s common sense that the superior beings survive to procreate, and the weaker beings don`t. Thus, evolution. And i know i`m probably being ignorant to religion right now, but I don`t see what religion`s problem with this statement of Survival of Fittest is. Anyone care to elaborate for me?
    Please note, i`m sick with a high fever, so if i`m completely wrong in anything i just said, i blame the fever.

    I also find it funny how evolutionists feel a certain urge to inform creationists that they are wrong and will attempt to persuade the creationists to believe in evolution

    Because it costs human lives. Every person who believes in Creationism is another person that is threatening all of our lives. We are entering the biological age, where terrorists and rogue countries will use germs rather than nukes. Without an understanding of biology, you cannot hope to prepare and defend yourself from that threat. Evolution is the corner stone of biology. Biology works EVERY DAY and in EVERY biology lab WITHOUT FAIL because we have an understanding of evolution. Beyond defense, our understanding of biology is keeping people alive and healthy.

    Point blank, Creationism contributes absolutely NOTHING to biology. Biology would not exist without evolution. Modern medicine would not exist if evolution was wrong. That is all the proof you should need.

    Nice try, but the argument is specious. it takes lots of different gases made up of different trace minerals, and elements, and heat, and humidity, and time, you know, the primordial soup, for single celled vegetation, plankton, then sponges, then protozoa to happen. Not a jar of peanut butter! Either that or we were seeded from more advanced aliens, who are still experimenting on us today.

    the entire Christian religion is based on the Bible.
    Yes @patchouly, but what about us Deists? I don`t believe in the Bible, just the existance of God. And I don`t mean Yahwey, Jehova or Allah, just God the Creator of the Universe :)
    So it`s EASY for me to believe in both God and evolution, lolz! Being a Deist is easy in general...
    Also there`s lots of Christians who believe in evolution, they just think God `directs it` a little, now and then.

    @BBJellyFish: Gone are the dark clouds of evolution! It`s gonna be a bright bright creationist day!

    kryptonite, they dont make anything laws anymore. its just not the way science works. this is because new information is always found and would then have to be added to the law, which would have made it not such a great law to begin with. so now in science if anything is labeled theory in the scientific community, it is as good as being a law.

    Remember @Kryptonite - survival of the "fittest" means the most suited to their environment, not neccessarily the biggest or strongest (although they tend to do well overall). Now go eat some chicken soup!

Does he take the new anti-biotics that work and this renounce his claims against evolution? Or does he take the old anti-biotics as a stand and DIE cos they don`t work after TB EVOLVED to counter-act the old antibiotics? HMMM

    They have indeed created completely synthetic life from scratch. In order to make sure it was obviously synthetic they put their website and names of all involved into the genetic code. The potential of this is obviously ground-breaking. I still think that people will sigh and tut and go "those crazy evolutionists! Thinking they are right still, despite the fact that I FOUND NO LIFE IN PEANUT BUTTER. Explain THAT! Synthetic cancer curing cells go to hell" etc

    @CobraKiller - As a first year Biology major, I`m well aware that they don`t make Laws anymore. I was just using the contrast of the words Theory and Law to make a point. My biology prof told us that in biology, there are no laws. But if there was, Evolution would surely be the first to be accepted.
    @5Cats, I know it isn`t the strongest lol. But thank you! Though, i think my body needs a bit more than soup to fight pneumonia. Thank you Alexander Fleming and your wonderful contributions to science.

    "It took 6 billion years for new life to form on earth, so you would ave to leave the peanut butter sitting for 6 billion years to see if new life forms. It doesn`t for in a month"

    It wouldn`t because it`s sterile. Food companies don`t like taking risks that might surprise you (mould on lid anyone?) or indeed why would they give their products a short shelf life when they can extend it and remove all the bacteria? This argument is actually a fantastic representation of how little they know about science or even the basics of how food is packaged. Go go creationism!

    If I hadn`t done research to find if this vid was legit when I first saw it three years ago, I would have called Poe`s Law. Unfortunately, yes, people are this stupid.

    I say I have to agree with Kryptonite, Evolution does, at its most basic level, make far more sense than Gravity. Seriously, which is more readily apparent; the diversity of life through natural selection of mutations caused by transcription errors in the RNA synthesis process, or the dilation of space-time caused by densely packed atoms?

    "I still fail to see how God cannot coexist with evolution."
    Well, it IS possible for a deity to exist but,
    that is not what the speaker is focused on.

    He specifically argued against evolution and, by extension,
    in favor of intelligent design,
    by stating that it was impossible for new life to be
    produced,
    using the peanut butter as source matter ignoring,
    first, there being billions of cells in any organism
    that is large enough to be seen with a naked eye and,
    second, the conditions of the packaging being intentionally
    unfavorable for microorganisms.

    Even if neither of these are true, I`m fairly certain that he`d
    be hard pressed to find a jar that had been subjected
    to a lightning strike at the same time any required
    chemical, as well as environmental condition is present.

    "Over a billion experiments every year, and we`ve done that for virtually a hundred years."

    These people have no sense of scale.

    The earth is 4.54 billion years old.
    The oldest life (we know of) is 3.5 billion years old.

    Now, I`m being very crude an inaccurate here, but that gives just over (1.04) a billion years between the formation of the earth and the start of life. Even remembering that the earth spent a lot of that time in an inhabitable state, that still gives well over the "hundred years" this guy is talking about.

    When he comes back after having performed his peanut butter experiment for a few hundred million years, then we`ll talk about his findings.

    @Musuko42: You`re forgetting that the people who support this hypothesis also believe that the universe (as created by God) is no more than a few thousand years old.
    On that premise they would also dismiss your argument.
    If the issue of evolution vs. creation were to be solved on the merits of logic and empirical observation, resolution would have been achieved a long time ago.

    Sadly christians believe the earth was created in seven days. The original translations never mentioned "days" but "lengths of time" (or something like that). It could have been 7 million years like 7 billion years, but obviously not 7 days. I personally believe that god would have created "evolution", which took us all the way to how we are now.

    if you subjected the jar of peanut butter to the heat they are talking about like lightning, there wouldn`t be new life cause the jar of peanut butter would be gone. all he`s really proving is the absence of spontaneous generation which we already proved with that meat experiment that one guy did whose name i cant remember right now. haha but i don`t know its so weird that they just grabbed peanut butter out of no where and were liek `THIS IS WHAT I WILL USE TO DISPROVE EVOLUTION"

    What im saying is, i dont know what created the first living creature, im saying its not your god, and i dont need to sit in a church for one hour to get life lessons from a guy that doesnt drat (little children in occassions)
    Deniying evolution is just stupid, you can claim that your god started life at the beggining of the universe, but dont tell me adam and eve were the first humans, its just stupid...
    Besides, if they were the first ones on earth, and they had children, how the hell did they have grandchildren??

    @MauserTM
    In Genesis, it tells you how they had grandchildren... they just had more kids, and those kids made more kids. With each other.
    The defense is that supposedly, incest wasn`t bad until after the Flood.

    Great, so we dont evolve from monkeys but from our uncles and aunts... Its reasonable
    Also, in the arc, did they put inside a poodle, a doberman, a beagle, a golden retriever, etc? Cause if they dont believe in evolution, these kinds of dogs should not exist

    its sad to see adults so caught up in fairy tales of a magical celestial being which supposedly created and runs our lives.

    if that were true, why do the prayers of little children in extremis go unanswered? why are there rapes and killings of innocents every minute of every day? do some of those people not cry out to a merciful god for deliverance? and if one exists why is there no intervention to save them?

    because its all a fairy tale, that`s why.

    ts funny how u say u believe in anselms ontological proof AND st thomas aquinas proof.. thomas aquinas REJECTED anselms proof haha

    Neither of them are proof of anything anyway.

    I don`t care if people decide that their faith requires them to deny reality. I do care if they pretend it`s rational. I do care if they try to abuse science by pretending their utterly irrational delusions are science. I do care if they try to force their faith on everyone by making it compulsory in schools in science classes. Those people are lowlives who worship ignorance and are trying to corrupt and destroy science by deception and propaganda.

    Wow... I can feel my self gettting dumber from watching this. I belive in God, but I also don`t blindly dismiss evolution. Seeing that there is proof that things have evolved. I`m not saying that we came from monkeys but who knows what Adam and Eve looked like?

    NOBODY is saying that we came from monkeys. It`s just one of the many lies that Christian creationists spew out about anyone who doesn`t mindlessly agree with everything they say. Sometimes it fools people, as it appears to have fooled you. That`s the main point of propaganda - to fool others into getting a false impression of the people being targetted by the propaganda.

    You could, if you wanted, simply decide to believe that Adam and Eve were the first homo sapiens. Or the first who left Africa (i.e. Africa as the garden of Eden), because life would have been very hard indeed for those people.

    I don`t even see how the Theory of Evolution isn`t a Law.

    Theories and laws are quite different things. One cannot become the other. A theory is a wide-ranging *explanation* of things. A law is a narrow, precise *description* of what happens under specific circumstances.

    For example:

    A theory of gravity would explain, completely, how gravity works.

    "The force of gravity exerted by an object is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from that object`s centre" is a law about gravity.

    @ JahLiveChild - "Food is created in a sterile, controlled environment. The universe wasn`t."

    What was there before the universe which could contaminate it? Some would argue it was controlled, by God.

    Why do atheists so vehemently deny God, and why do most Christians so vehemently deny atheism? Why can`t they coexist? It is naive and retarded to take the King James translation of the Bible literally, however the Christian/Jewish/Muslim/Hindu/Aboriginal etc faiths all describe the scientific process of the world, in ways that could be understood before nano-experimentation was possible.
    Big Bang - there was a singularity, then there was universe
    Creation - there was God, then there was universe
    14 billion years of geology and evolution
    7 time periods (clearly days were not the 24 hour cycles we know back before time was a concept) of creation
    A Great Flood - Many historical and geological records support the theory of extensive flooding in

    Here`s my 2 cents: The universe is eternal. Not the current cycle of it, which starts from the Big Bang, but there is some form of existence that has potential to form into a universe like our own that has been around forever. Spinoza called this eternal being God, but that`s really a matter of semantics.

    Evolution is not the same as the origin of life. Evolution is the manner in which life changes over time. However, the Miller-Urey experiment took common non-living matter, pumped it full of energy, and within a week, there were amino acids present in the container. Amino acids, for those of you unfamiliar with biochemistry, are the building blocks of proteins. Proteins are the chemicals that are responsible for every single function that occurs in your body.

    Of course it took quite a bit longer than that the create more complex life forms, but, given that it doesn`t take that much to link together amino acids and create a sequence that could be a functional protein, it`s not unlikely that more complex life would eventually form.

    @green_batman - unfortunately those experiments are invalid, as they involve the interference of a higher power (scientists). I`m not going to deny that science created life and evolution formed it, I`m suggesting that science and God are one and same.

    I have no opinion on what came before the Big Bang, or whatever the kids are calling it nowadays, but the stories presented by humans have to start somewhere, and the beginning of our `cycle` as you put it, seems a good place to start.

    The experiments referred to don`t require the scientists` involvement. The scientists are not the creators. None of the scientists involved created the amino acids by the power of their will, magic spells or whatever. There was no-one saying "Let there be amino acids" and lo! there was.

    In order to prove your assertion that the experiments are invalid, you would have to prove that the conditions could not have occured naturally at any time, not that the conditions were set up in this case by people. If I build a machine that creates lightning, does that prove lightning is created by gods?

    Three flaws in his theory. 1) The amount of energy says is required to form new life is never applied to the peanut butter. 2) The type of matter that science says is necessary to form is not in the peanut butter. 3) The type of life science says is formed by the right amount of energy applied to the right type of matter is microscopic, and you would never see with the naked eye.

    Not that I`m arguing for or against evolution, just that I`m pointing out that his argument is invalid.

    Every canned food is a life form which has been thoroughly killed and preserved by the food industry for a rather limited amount of time, if compared to the age of the universe. In fact, every jar of peanut butter contains plenty of microorganisms which, if left alone long enough, will multiply and colonize it.

    As Athelstanrex pointed out correctly: If this proves anything, it`s that ressurection does not happen. It seems like none of God`s creatures which have been murdered by industry has ever found mercy in his eyes. You better don`t believe you will ...

    "None of the scientists involved created the amino acids by the power of their will"

    Um sorry Angilion, but that`s a reach, eh? Do you know all the `laws of the universe`? ALL of them? Can you explain "non-locality"?
    I can`t either!
    So until then, lets keeps "science" and "speculation" widely seperated, eh? Like Eskimo9 said, those experiments don`t "prove" squat... and I don`t think it was "alive" anyhow...

    1. New life cannot emerge because life originally formed through specific processes, which are difficult to re-create and even more difficult to validate.

    2. If that`s not enough, they`re also ignoring that current life on all scales hinder the creation of "new" life so as to make something which is almost impossible even more unlikely.

    3. Macroevolution is not the same as microevolution. While macroevolution arises from microevolution, disproving microevolution or the non-divine creation of life would still ignore the similarities between life-forms that macroevolution is based on.
