Theory of evolution says matter combined with energy can create life. Guy takes a jar of peanut butter and says, here is matter. When it's exposed to light it doesn't create life, fortunately. The entire food industry is dependent upon matter not turning into life when it's exposed to energy.
Uh, how many bacteria are in the peanut butter?
They're alive. And there are 10 times more of them inside of you than there are human cells. If it wasn't for bacteria, we couldn't digest the peanut butter.
What about viruses?
Are they alive? Science can't give us a definitive answer. But they do have DNA and RNA inside of them, even though they cannot reproduce on their own, they know how to reproduce really well, and evolve. The fact we can't "cure" the common cold virus, because it adapts too quickly to changes, should be ample evidence of that.
Life from non-life?
If a virus contains all the DNA code necessary to create life, yet isn't really alive, couldn't it be like a tiny sperm, which combined with another half of a DNA double helix from another virus, create life from non-life?
