METAPHYSICAL QUOTES — The L I F E Series — # 1

*** The presence of divinitybecame almost palpable.  I knew that life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes.  This knowledge came to me directly, noetically.  It was an experiential cognition— Edgar Mitchell, former astronaut Apollo 14 after seeing the Earth from Moon

 

***Does it sound to you as though it would need a miracle to make randomly jostling atoms join together into a self-reproducing molecule?  Well, at times it does to me too—Richard Dawkins, biologist/atheist/skeptic

 

***…merely to create a bacterium would require more time than the Universe might ever see if chance combinations of its molecules were the only driving force…..In short life could not have started by chance—Gerald Schroder, physicist

 

***Life is the transmutation of energy and matter.  Solar fire transmutes into the green fire of photosynthetic beings—Margulies and Sagan, biologists

 

***The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a print shop—Albert Einstein, physicist
