Massachusetts physicist and assistant professor at the prestigious Massachussets Institute of Techology (MIT), the 31-year old Jeremy England, claims that he solved the mystery of how life emerged from matter. According to Professor England, the origin of life, often attributed to luck or labeled as some kind of miracle, actually is predictale under the right conditions. Under these conditions, the creation of life is predictably unavoidable, affirms Professor England.
“You start with a random clump of atoms, and if you shine light on it for long enough, it should not be so surprising that you get a plant, or any other form of life," Professor Englad explains. Initially sceptical, the scientific community has been steadily warming up to the theory. As a consequence, Jeremy England has been the speaker most prestigious universities around the World or academic conferences would like to have.
The theory developed by Professor England includes energy dissipation as the fundation of the multiplication of life: "from the standpoint of physics, there is one essential difference between living things and inanimate clumps of carbon atoms: The former tend to be much better at capturing energy from their environment and dissipating that energy as heat."
From that perspective, the various forms of life seen on Earth, would be various manifestations of energy dispersion, rather than the narrow view of natural selection as explained by Darwin's natural selection theory. Hence, Professor England's theory views "Darwinian evolution [as] a special case of a more general phenomenon.”
Professor England summarizes his theory about life as follows: "the origin and subsequent evolution of life follow from the fundamental laws of nature and should be as unsurprising as rocks rolling downhill.”
If the theory is right, the implications are huge: life would exist on the infinite number of planets and universes in the Cosmos. That would be both a major challenge and a boost to both the creationinst and evolutionist theories.
