In Progress

How Did Life Begin?

  • Question 01
    What is the Law of Biogenesis and how can it help us understand where life came from?
  • Question 02
    In your life and experiences, what instances have you seen that confirm that life in the natural world comes only from previously existing life of its own kind?
  • Question 03
    What scientific experiment stood out to you in this lesson? What does it teach us about our world?
  • Question 04

    Genesis 1:12, 24
    12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

    24 And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so.

    Read Genesis 1:12, 24. How do these verses fit into a discussion of life and biogenesis?
  • Question 05
    What problems arise when atheistic, evolutionary teachings about the origin of life are compared to what we actually see happening in nature?
  • Question 06
    Does the idea of biogenesis prove the existence of an intelligent Designer who lives above and outside the natural world? Why or why not?
