Coincidence qualifies as scientific proof, for atheism

RNA world easier to make
May 14, 2009

“So coincidental that one would have to believe it” qualifies as scientific proof, as long as no God is in the mix.

An elegant experiment has quashed a major objection to the theory that life on Earth originated with molecules of RNA.

John Sutherland and his colleagues from the University of Manchester, UK, created a ribonucleotide, a building block of RNA, from simple chemicals under conditions that might have existed on the early Earth.

Sutherland, though, hopes that ingenious organic chemistry might provide an RNA synthesis so convincing that it effectively serves as proof. “We might come up with something so coincidental that one would have to believe it,” he says. “That is the goal of my career.”
