Science Uprising Episode 5 — Origin of Life: Intelligence Required

Continuing the Science Uprising series: Episode 5: Could life arise spontaneously from chemicals? Scientists like Stephen Hawking have said that’s the case. No God or intelligent mind required.

“The origin of life community has not been honest,” Tour said.

Philosopher of science Stephen C. Meyer argues that the only thing we’ve observed that can create the functional, digital information responsible for the origin of the cell is a mind.
