In an article published on online recently the readers were made aware that,
"The new study — in the journal Nature Communications — suggests trillions of lightning strikes spanning about 1 billion years helped create phosphorous, a key ingredient in the formation of life." (Lightning strikes as a major facilitator of prebiotic phosphorus reduction on early Earth, by Benjamin L. Hess, Sandra Piazolo, Jason Harvey, March 16, 2021) (axios.com)
They assume things all the time, could have/may have, because they either have no idea what happened, or they do not want to share with the public what even they know. Evolutionists are confidently throwing around such non-factual concepts as abiogenesis, something supposedly describing the spontaneous birth of life forms from chemicals and other amorphous material, pretty much another definition for miracle, and speciation, which is gradual evolution spelled differently. In reality, as basically even the authors of this study admit no one actually knows how life has appeared on our planet, a reminder of the fact that Darwin's On the Origin of the Species does not address the question of the origin of species and that the title of his book is a false label placed on an empty box.
To have a life form, any life form, you would first have to have its DNA, and the origin of the DNA is a capital problem for the theory of evolution, another something no one wants to talk about. Someone did talk about the origin of the DNA, though, and that was no other than Francis Crick, its co-discoverer and a Nobel Prize recipient for that very reason. According to him, and he stated this in his published book, the DNA was produced outside planet Earth by an advanced civilization. Considering that the DNA contains coded information, this is something Lady Evolution and Aunt Natural Selection, two imaginary characters in a fictional story presented as fact in schools and universities, precisely how the six-day fictional creation story in the Bible is described to trusting churchgoers would be incapable of putting together. On the other hand, according to both genetics and field theory, Crick's assertion makes perfect sense.
As publicly admitted even by some of those on-again, off-again supporters of Darwinism, with American evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould being one of them, there has been a code of silence imposed on scientists on this subject, something similar to the UFO phenomenon and the contacts we made for thousands of years with extraterrestrials being a taboo topic for the media. Albert Einstein, for example, would often weigh in on all sorts of topics of great human interest. He has never discussed though evolution publicly, one way or the other, and yet we know for a fact he was well-aware of the controversy.
The code of silence imposed by or rather reinforced through the academia resulted in the fact that only scientists that happen to have a very intimate association with what some would call religion, belief in some kind of deity that is not always one and the same with the god of religion are being heard speaking against evolution, and even though some of them are Nobel Prize recipients in all sorts of science related fields, the evolution propaganda machine calls them creationists and invites the public to dismiss on account of that their otherwise valid scientific argument against gradualism.
