In the past several hours, headlines have suggested that life has been created in a research lab. For example, MSNBC.com blared, “It’s alive!”1
Check back tomorrow morning for an analysis by Dr. Georgia Purdom (PhD, molecular genetics) of our staff about this bacterium that has been synthetically formed. For the moment, we will just state that all of the components required in forming this bacterium were already in existence. This research, while brilliantly executed, has nothing to do with evolution in the molecules-to-man sense. As we will reveal Saturday on this website (in the News to Note feature), the research of intelligent scientists working in state-of-the art labs has still not produced anything near a new life form from scratch. Moreover, the mindless process of evolution—even given billions of years—would not fare any better.

“Now that I have updated, revised, and expanded The Lie, I believe it’s an even more powerful, eyeopening book for the church—an essential resource to help all of us to understand the great delusion that permeates our world! The message of The Lie IS the message of AiG and why we even exist! It IS the message God has laid on our hearts to bring before the church! It IS a vital message for our time.”
