TASC Meeting: Abiogenesis and the RNA World Hypothesis

Thursday, August 13, 2020 - 7:00pm

Due to coronavirus concerns, TASC is currently meeting online.

Abiogenesis and the RNA World Hypothesis

Dan Reynolds, PhD will discuss the new book The Stairway to Life: An Origin-of-Life Reality Check written by Change Tan and Rob Stadler. Stairway, published this year, has penetrating insight into the various layers of information found in living cells, revealing the complete explanatory bankruptcy of abiogenesis. The book discusses the various “steps” on the “stairway” from chemistry to biology, citing the most recent and relevant research. After showing why chemistry and physics cannot account for a given step, the authors introduce the next step giving abiogenesis the benefit of the doubt for all previous steps. The authors bring to light many of the paradoxes and irreducible complexities in life that are inexplicable by evolutionary processes. Stairway shows why the RNA World hypothesis does not work.
