Faith & Science: The Mystery of The Origin of Life

This course does not provide continuing education credit. 

Previously recorded on September 9, 2021 Dr. James Tour speaks on the origin of life.

r. James Tour is one of the ten most cited chemists in the world, has over 700 research publications and over 140 patents, was named among “The 50 Most Influential Scientists in the World Today,” and was ranked as one of the Top 10 chemists in the world over the past decade. Dr. Tour will speak on abiogenesis, the prebiotic process wherein life, such as a cell, arises from non-living materials such as simple organic compounds. An opinion will be rendered showing that current theories and assumptions for how life began are not substantiated, and that the strongest evidence against the proposals of current prebiotic research is the researchers’ own data.
