    Primordial Soup Hypothesis: The scientist involved in the hypothesis was A.I. Oparin and J.B.S. Haldane. The year the hypothesis was presented was in 1920. The claim of the scientist was that life began in a pond or ocean and chemicals in the atmosphere mixed to form all the the species today. The evidence that was presented to the scientist was that the first organisms were autotrophs. The experiments the scientist did was they mixed methane, ammonia, water , hydrogen , and not oxygen. The reasoning the scientist gave to support their theory was the result was nothing because they had problems with their theory like the early atmosphere had different chemicals and that amino acids have to become proteins. The Primordial Soup Theory. (n.d.). Retrieved September 12, 2015. Iron-Sulfur World Hypothesis: The scientist involved in the hypothesis was Gunter Wachtershauser. The year the hypothesis was presented was in the 1980s. The claim of the scientist was he postulated the evolution of chemical pathways as fundamentals of the evolution of life. The evidence that was presented by the scientist was The energy released from red ox reactions of these metal sulfides is not only available for the explanation of organic molecules, but also for the formation of oligomers and polymers. The experiments involved in testing the hypothesis was one that Stanley Miller did , in the experiment he mixed methane, ammonia, and hydrogen to form basic monomers. The reasoning the scientist gave…

    Francesco disproved the theory of spontaneous generation through his controlled experiment with the maggots and the meat. Redi hypothesized that maggots did not magically appear from the meat, like the people at the time thought, but rather hatched from the objects deposited by the flies. He tested this by placing meat in two jars, one with no lid (the control group) and the other with a cloth cover (the experimental group). If spontaneous generation was valid, then both jars would’ve had…

    The Systematic Destruction of Imagination Modern educational systems in the United States encourage students to conform to the status quo and to never challenge the way things are done. Students attend classes of little real world value, kids either become disillusioned with learning or lose their imagination through conformity. Many classes discuss artistic works, but never consider that there can be more than one meaning or deeper purpose to be gleaned from them. Ignorant parents contribute…

    proven observational science. As Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell from an article in Answers in Genesis says, observable science is testable repeatable, and a person could use the five senses as evidence. Scientists might say we have a huge fossil record to look towards which is observable. Yes, but there are still many missing links to the fossil record and having a fossil of each organism does not mean that monkeys and men have the same ancestor. Multiple fossils simply state there are many different…

    Evolution There have been many arguments on the topic evolution. In the Qualia Soup video: Evolution, the topic will be broken down and the truth will finally be revealed. The scientific theory of evolution explains how living organism develop and diversity over generations. It not explains the origins and development of the universe as in cosmogenesis. It also does not explain how life first began such as abiogenesis. What it does explain is how new varieties of life form emerge from earlier…

    The people who are not overweight it might show another part of type 2 diabetes. Human diets are complicated however no clinical evidence indicates that certain diets are more effective at getting rid of weight. However, certain diets can be harmful, and others can be helpful. Data of this shows that food choices, energy intake, and BMI are the results of problems in the adipose mass. Also, taste and food patterns are affected by genetics as well, but this evidence does not affect type 2…

    Abiogenesis is the process of life coming from inanimate chemistry, the first indication that this was possible came in 1952 when Stanley Miller filled a flask with water heated it enough to evaporate and had a tube with which water could evaporate into another flask filled with methane, hydrogen, and ammonia, along with an electric spark in the flask with the gases in it, and a second tube leading to the flask with water so the evaporated water can return to the original flask of water again…

    Naturalism is the "idea or belief that only natural (as opposed to supernatural or spiritual; God) laws and forces operate in the world." This correlates to Evolution describes a mechanism by which living organisms change and differentiates over time. That process says nothing about where the first living organism came from, the notion that it arose from non-living processes is abiogenesis, something creationists frequently confuse with evolution. This theory which has been scientifically…

    was based on Darwin’s research so there are facts and figures to support the theory, and Darwin was a famous scientist who developed the ‘Theory of Evolution’ which the fundamental base for our modern science. In a documentary that I have watched on Discovery Channel, it shows that the origin of species was from the microorganism in the ocean that evolved through time by growing limbs to adapt to the environment. They diversified through millions of years and became living species that we can…

    They worked on disproving spontaneous generation. Also known as abiogenesis, spontaneous generation is the belief that living things could arise from nonliving things. Worms and flies were often seen on decaying meat, which led many to believe that that’s where they originated from. Francesco Redi was the first out of the three to try and disprove this theory. He proved that flies and maggots do not come from rotting meat, but from the eggs laid on the meat. His experiment, however, did not turn…
