As far as the origin of life, God explains all of creation in Genesis. And I reckon if I can believe God raised a dead man to life (which is outside the bounds of observed science), then I should be able to believe that he can breathe life into any other inanimate object. All of which is consistent with my deduction that life cannot arise from random chemical reactions over time. At that point, I began to study Genesis literally and found that the Bible’s story of creation is consistent with the world we see today. I am a more mature Christian now with a much deeper level of faith because of my search for the truth about the Bible’s story of creation.
