Ten Questions for Charles Darwin and His Followers-#6
By Dr. Chuck McGowen

How could the first primordial cell have survived in an atmosphere containing either oxygen or no oxygen?

At the moment of the appearance of the first master cell the atmosphere either contained oxygen or it did not. No one knows for certain just of what the primordial atmosphere consisted. Some have proposed a combination of hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), nitrogen (N2), water vapor (H2O) and small amounts of oxygen (O2). Others have added methane (CH4) to the mix.


If oxygen had been present then the first cell could not have evolved without first containing a highly complex mechanism called the cytochrome oxidase system. This enzymatic apparatus is the tool that a cell uses to process oxygen, metabolize its food and grow. Without this highly complex and intricately organized system a primitive cell would be “oxidized” or burned-up by the oxygen in the primitive atmosphere. Realizing the improbability that this complex enzymatic system could have randomly evolved in the first cell some evolutionists have hypothesized a primeval atmosphere devoid of oxygen. 


But an anoxic atmosphere creates another over whelming problem for the first master cell, the primordial source of all life. Without oxygen the atmosphere would be also missing ozone (O3), which is generated by the action of cosmic rays and/or lightning on oxygen. Ozone protects life on earth by filtering out some of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Without it, no life would survive very long on planet earth.  In the Darwinian model of biological macro-evolution, with or without oxygen being present, the primordial cellular origin of all plant, animal and human life would burn up: as soon as it “evolved” it’s toast. In Darwin’s words, it would not be fit to survivie.


No evolutionary scientist has yet shown in the laboratory  how any of those mixtures of gases could have produced and sustained self replicating life (a single living cell) when suspended over a liquid containing organic and inorganic chemicals. The entire theory of biological evolution is pure conjecture; an enigma, wrapped in a conundrum and clouded by mystery. Let’s stop telling our students that it is a proven fact. Let’s have an open, honest and unemotional debate on the observable facts that true science has to offer
