What Are We Doing Here? Part One
Over these two weeks, our hope is to overcome Sleigh Track Logic, sorting through all of the things that make sense and determine what makes the most sense.
Richard Dawkins, one of the most prominent voices in the atheist movement has written a very popular book called "The God Delusion", in which Dawkins aims to prove how the world we see today could be created through naturalistic means.
These naturalistic explanations are very compelling, fleshing out Darwin's theory based on the newest science available to us.
But, this only takes us to a point. The point in which everything came out of nothing.
In a recent interview of Dawkins, the journalist didn't try to make the mistake of picking apart Dawkins' science from a completely uninformed perspective, but instead asked where this first "life" came from that naturally replicated and evolved over time into the world we see today? Dawkins could not answer, because it is not something that science can tell us, at least not yet.
The origin of species does not explain the origin of life itself.
