Cornelius Hunter notes at his blog that whatever the 21st century theory of the origin of life turns out to be it will still be called "evolution" and it will still be true, no matter how incompatible it may be with the evidence:
Evolution may make no sense, but it will always be true. It must be, for god would never make this world. So evolution will flit from nonsensical idea to nonsensical idea in its never ending attempt to make sense. Who knows what the theory of origins will be in the future, but it will be called evolution. And it will be true. Religion drives science and it matters.
Hunter arrives at this conclusion after commenting on a book written by two atheistic evolutionists titled What Darwin Got Wrong. In the book the authors essentially claim that none of the current theories of abiogenesis make any sense, that they are, in Hunter's words, a melange of false predictions and unfounded speculations, all contrived in the absence of any credible mechanisms. But that nevertheless we know it happened.
And how do we know it happened? Because since there is no God there's no other way it could have happened. As Hunter says: Evolution may be all wrong, but it is still true. That we know.RLC
