Who would have thought that the answers to the mysteries of the universe lie at the bottom of a jar of peanut butter? Well, they do if you believe creationist Chuck Missler’s ‘educational’ video.
Missler, who is billed as an engineer and author, tries to disprove claims by evolutionists that energy plus matter sometimes results in the creation of life.
His theory is that, since no-one has ever found spontaneously-generated life in a jar of peanut butter, matter plus energy from the sun could not have caused life on Earth.
Missler explains: “A jar of peanut butter contains matter and is exposed to light and heat but we never find new life inside unless an outside life contaminates it.
“If the theory of evolution is viable then I should, occasionally, by subjecting this to energy, end up having new life.
“If I open this jar of peanut butter, maybe not often but on some occasion, I should find new life inside but when we open the jar of peanut butter and look in there, there’s no new life.”
