"All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."
Though Louis Pasteur proved that life comes only from life, the myth that life can come from non-life – or abiogenesis – is still defended by evolutionists today. They now claim that while Pasteur disproved spontaneous generation, he did not prove that life comes only from life.
Confused? Here is how one evolutionist explains it: "Spontaneous generation held that life in its present form today could form from non-life, and did so all the time – for instance, aphids sprang from dew on plants, maggots emerged from rotting meat, and mice were created from wet hay. In 1859, Louis Pasteur … proved definitively that life does not spring, fully formed and unbidden, from any recipe of inorganic or dead organic matter."
Notice the words "fully formed" in that statement? Like most evolutionists today, he believes that life came from non-life, but such life came into being not at a fully formed creature level but at a chemical level. According to the evolutionist, "Abiogenesis predicts that … the constituent components of life can self-arrange given certain conditions" and that "there is some point in Earth's early history wherein a chemical chain reaction went runaway and breached the fuzzy barrier between chemistry and biology."
Though evolutionists admit they have zero evidence for this, they still cling to such a rescuing device because evolution and their atheistic worldview depend on it. Unlike evolutionists, though, creationists can hang their hat on the established Law of Biogenesis – that life comes only from life!
