Misinformation and The Origins of Life

There are many bold claims that are made in regard to scientific discoveries and research and how they should be understood.

Atheists in the mainstream will often argue that science has disproven the existence of God, while there are philosophers, even the occasional atheist philosopher, who will say, “Not so fast.”

So, I find it refreshing when I’ve been noticing an issue and someone else comes along and sees the same thing, especially when that person is a relevant authority on the topic. That’s why I think that video below is worth sharing with my readers.

From the video description:

According to a nationwide survey, more than two-thirds of atheists and one-third of agnostics believe that “the findings of science make the existence of God less probable,” while nearly half of self-identified theists believe “the findings of science are neutral with regard to the existence of God.” But what if there is another option? What if the discoveries of science actually lend support to belief in God?

In the video, Dr James Tour gives a presentation that anyone from the professional chemist to a complete novice can understand. From Dr. Tour’s bio,

James M. Tour is an American synthetic organic chemist, specializing in nanotechnology. Tour is the T. T. and W. F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Materials Science and NanoEngineering, and Professor of Computer Science at Rice University in Houston, Texas, United States.
