God made a natural order that acts according to it’s own nature
From the time of the big bang up until the present we see the natural formation of different kinds of physical natures and elements which eventually lead to the formations of planets.
Our planet was fortunate enough to form in the Goldilocks zone, allowing for chemistry to ensue and the formation of water which is needed for life.
All these processes happened naturally, and most Christians when faced with the question of science versus genesis will say that genesis is not an historical representation of how the universe was formed over time, but rather it is a theological representation of God’s sovereignty over the universe. Hardly anybody argues with this point.
The Picture i get from science is that, apart from the theory of evolution, there has been a kind of cosmic evolution. It appears as if the universe is a system that manifests according to the intrinsic principles put there by the Creator and is not something that is tinkered with. It’s a universe that creates new forms through it’s internal interactions.
Given the four premises above is there any good reason to think that God didn’t allow complex life to form naturally from chemical interactions? More importantly is there any good reason to think that there is any logical contradiction in thinking that single celled organisms were the result of a chemical soup, and in fact this same process might have occurred elsewhere?
