Soup or Milk?

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

(Isaiah 28:9-10) KJV

Popular science (SciPop) came up with the theory of abiogenesis in a primordial soup many years ago. Then amino acids were made from simple precursors in a lab and SciPop decided that it had proven its theory.

See how many [leaps of faith] are necessary to impute the results of the lab experiment to the supposed primordial soup.

A [simulation] of the conditions which [may] have existed [if] the [speculative] model of earth formation is correct, [but] which is [not] a testable hypothesis so it’s [not] scientific.

– the Miller-Urey experiment

We realize that atheist science trolls (ASTs), scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISW), and SciPop devotees will complain that Miller-Urey IS the test of the hypothesis, but that’s sleight-of-hand. The conditions of the early universe aren’t known, and that’s what can’t be tested. Miller-Urey is a test of the hypothesis that you can make amino acids in a lab. That’s all.

It may be SciPop sleight-of-hand but it took the theory of abiogenesis to center stage. Either way it’s great for us, Matty’s Paradigm, because we can easily plug it into the creation narrative. But here’s some nuance: was it primordial soup, or was it the milk of the word? The universe at the end of the first day was a watery suspension that teemed with life. If we want to know something about what this may have looked like we only have to look to the Bible. So what did this watery suspension look like? Milk. Milk has to come before solid food in the growth of babies and in the spiritual growth of Christians. Milk, in zero-G, is what the previously formless and void waters of the deep became.
