Bible beats scientists to another ‘discovery’ – Life may have arisen from clay, just as scripture says

Posted by Joseph on 13 November, 2013

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – A Cornell University study has revealed, more or less by accident, that clay hydrogels could provide the perfect environment for primitive life on Earth.

A clay hydrogel is essentially a fancy way of saying mud, although of a particular type and consistency-in this case, wet clay.

Researchers were trying to find better ways to produce complex proteins for drug manufacturing when they realized the conditions found in clay hydrogels were quite good for biomolecules and biochemical reactions. In other words, in their finding, the building blocks of life might more easily assemble within clay.
