New publications from The Center for Chemical Evolution elucidate how peptides can form bilayer membranes with some interesting properties. Could these structures be enlisted to service Darwin's theory? Evolutionists believe life arose spontaneously and so they search for ideas of how this could have occurred. They require several scientifically unlikely events to occur, one of which is the formation of a microscopic compartment in which to hold and safeguard the unlikely chemical combinations that are needed.
Could not the peptide bilayer membranes have provided the compartment? Furthermore, there is the hint that such a membrane, constructed from protein building blocks, could actually perform some protein functions. Perhaps we’re seeing a new pathway to solve thorny problems of how life originated.
Actually what we are seeing is the same old misappropriation of good research—this time with potential nano machinery applications—to junk science. It is yet another in a long list of absurd speculations of how life arose. Did it come from a warm little pond, from the bottom of the sea, or from outer space? Was it DNA or proteins that started things off. No early evolution must have occurred in an RNA world, except that this new research suggests that peptides were the panacea. As one evolutionist explained:
Our studies have now shown that, if you just add water, simple peptides access both the physical properties and the long-range molecular order that is critical to the origins of chemical evolution.
Did you know the most complex thing of all is a piece of cake? Just add water and everything else spontaneously occurs. Religion drives science and it matters.
