Was the emergence of the first self-replicating organism a result of design or the blind forces of nature?

Adam Rutherford is an atheist scientist whose new book “Creation: The Origin of Life” claims to show a naturalistic explanation for how life arose. Fazale (Fuz) Rana is a biochemist with Reasons To Believe. He values scientific research into origins but believes that Rutherford’s explanation is a dead-end. Design is still the best explanation.

The first of two programmes dealing with cellular biology. Next week they discuss “Creating life in the lab”.
