The popular interpretation of science predicts that
since life arose spontaneously, it must exist throughout our
galaxy and all across the universe. (If it magically sprouted
here, then it must have magically sprouted everywhere).
This interpretation of science also predicts that death will
overcome the universe when the energy required to
sustain life finally flickers out of existence. This is expected
to occur in a trillion years, or so.

In contrast, the Bible describes how life arose on earth, but
gives no indication that there are living beings elsewhere.
The Bible also predicts that life as we know it will go away,
but in a very different manner than popular science
predicts.

Just how whacked is the state of modern science?
Ponder this:

Thermodynamics is a scientific field. The calculation of
entropy falls within the realm of thermodynamics. The
popular and well-accepted notions of the evolution of the
universe insist that high entropy states of the distant past
evolved into low entropy states of the present. Moreover,
the formation of life from non-living ingredients
represents the most extreme case of entropy change in
the observable universe. Every entropy change has an
associated probability of occurrence. It is easily
demonstrated that the formation of life by evolutionary
means is the most unlikely occurrence in the known
universe.

Thatís a proven scientific fact. No appeals to conservation
laws can rescue the ignorant from the immutable
principles of statistical thermal physics. Step-wise,
lengthy processes are no better than sheep bladders in
explanatory power.

Nonetheless, the Bible predicts that the vast majority of
people created by God will refuse to believe they were
created by anything. They will go to their graves sincerely
believing that the most unlikely occurrence in the known
universe is a dead-on certainty.

The Bible predicts they will even mock those that believe
otherwise:

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days
scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, where
is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell
asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning
of the creation.
