Neil DeGrasse Tyson thinks life was inevitable considering the properties and ubiquity of carbon. Isn’t that like saying paintings would be inevitable if there was enough paint? Yeah, and an artist.
In Lesson 1 of the Great Courses’ Physics and Our Universe, it is important to lay the groundwork that evolution is the cause of everything and life spontaneously happens because scientists have figured out how to make a synthetic cell. I had to look up the latter and found this article.
Why so many people swallow this propaganda with so many obvious gaps is beyond me. And they say we’re lazy for believing God did it when we come across gaps! They believe evolution spanned innumerable gaps too! Firstly, amino acids are so far from dna, and even a coherent dna strand still needs an egg, unless you’re just talking about replicating-only mitosis. Complex organisms require differentiation of cells, which is largely the unreplicable job of an egg. They can’t explain these gaps. So not impressed with their accomplishments or their irrational fervor to disprove God, but the latter is obviously their #1 goal. They think we send our kids to school to gloss over what we don’t know and can’t do, so that they quit believing in God. Understanding what we do know about the universe is secondary and is meant for commercial application.
Over 100 years ago, Albert Einstein grappled with the implications of his revolutionary special theory of relativity and came to a startling conclusion: mass and energy are one, related by the formula E = mc2. In “Einstein’s Big Idea,” NOVA dramatizes the remarkable story behind this equation. E = mc2 was just one of several extraordinary breakthroughs that Einstein made in 1905, including the completion of his special theory of relativity, his identification of proof that atoms exist, and his explanation of the nature of light, which would win him the Nobel Prize in Physics. Among Einstein’s ideas, E = mc2 is by far the most famous. Yet how many people know what it really means? In a thought-provoking and engrossing docudrama, NOVA illuminates this deceptively simple formula by unraveling the story of how it came to be.”
