The New Genesis Foundation
The New Genesis
The author aspires to achieve an almost impossible objective, to explain one of the deep mysteries which man has always wanted to uncover: the origins of life and man on Earth. He tries to provide an answer if life on Earth is such an improbable phenomenon and something very unique. The main tenet of this book is to show that life on Earth is such a complex phenomenon that it could not have arisen spontaneously driven by random events and could not evolved into intelligent organisms. Such life could only have arisen as the result of a purposeful design by intelligent beings. I propose that the arising of intelligent life on Earth was the result of a well planned long term experiment. It is not the outcome of supernatural forces but the product of beings which are very different from us. These beings are not only intelligent but also very powerful as measured by our standards. However, regardless of who they are, they have to obey the universal laws of physics. This book takes a holistic approach to the subject of life on Earth and the arising of man. Life is such a complex phenomenon depending on so many parameters that all of them should be studied and evaluated. The actual process of genesis is not as described in religious literature. Quite the opposite. It is a very long and protracted process lasting about 4 billion years. It can be divided into several stages as a very logical sequence of interdependent events. It starts with the selection of a suitable planet and ends with the arising of intelligent modern man, an ultimate apex of creation. The first stage of genesis was the preparation of Earth for life and bringing water to the planet. When Earth was ready for life it was seeded with single cell organisms which generated oxygen. When there was enough oxygen, a more complex cells were introduced and about 520 million years ago multicellular life has emerged. During a very short time this life diversified into many different body plans which exist up to now.  The apex of the development is man and his brain which design was finalized about 6000 years ago. The hypothesis presented in this book, although solely scientific, do not undermine the existence of God. They do not rule out the existence of a Creator who does not interfere in the day to day running of the Universe. The book explains the origins of life and man using rational methodology, but by not rejecting God, it should be acceptable to both the atheists and the religious persons.
A chapter by chapter summary
Chapter    1     describes    the    selection    of    a    planet    suitable    for    supporting    life.    One planet,   chosen   from   millions,   had   to   be   in   the   right   place   not   only   in   its   Solar System    but    also    in    the    Milky    Way    which    guaranteed    suitable    environmental conditions.   This   planet   also   had   to   have   several   unique   properties   such   as   tectonic plates   and   a   magnetic   field.   When   Earth   was   selected,   her   orbit   was   adjusted   to secure her position in the habitable zone. Chapter   2    explains   how   water,   which   is   the   most   important   ingredient   for   life,   was delivered   to   Earth.   Water   was   needed   in   large   quantities   but   did   not   exist   in   this part   of   the   solar   system.   Water   has   very   peculiar   properties   not   shared   with   other liquids and therefore provides a unique contribution to life. Chapter   3       gives   details   of   the   first   organisms   on   Earth   which   were   small,   bacteria like   cells.   These   organisms   were   already   very   complex   employing   several   huge molecular   structures   which   laid   the   foundation   for   future   designs.   The   minimum genetic    requirements    for    a    living    cell    are    estimated.    The    processes    of    making proteins   and   metalloproteins   are   briefly   outlined.   It   is   shown   that   even   the   simplest bacteria   have   a   very   sophisticated   control   system.   It   is   explained   that   in   order   for   a cell to exist there must be a mother cell.  Chapter   4    provides   information   about   the   complex   cell   which   arrived   about   2 billion   years   ago.   The   arising   of   this   type   of   cell   cannot   be   explained   be    Darwin ’s evolution.   This   type   of   cell   is   the   basic   building   block   for   the   edifice   of   more complex    life    including    man.    The    purpose    of    DNA    introns    is    explained.        It highlights   that   the   cell’s   architecture   and   its   functions   are   not   coded   by   DNA therefore are not affected by mutations. Chapter   5    explains   the   cell’s   energy   system   which   includes   photosynthesis   and respiration   processes.   The   key   to   life   and   energy   generation   is   the   proton   pumping process.   The   first   cell   was   in   reality   a   very   sophisticated   biological   system   with fully   developed   energy   generation   and   transformation   processes   which   are   still used   in   all   organisms   on   Earth   today   including   man.   It   highlights   the   mystery   of the water splitting process. Chapter   6    deals   with   the   most   important   period   in   history   for   the   development   of life,   the   Cambrian   explosion,   which   lasted   about   20   million   years.   All   the   major body   plans   of   living   organisms,   including   vertebrates,   were   developed   during   this brief   period.   Incredible   increases   in   complexity   of   organisms,   including   the   arising of   a   large   number   of   different   cells   forming   new   tissues   and   organs,   also   happened at   this   time.   The   most   important   development   was   a   gene   control   mechanism   and Hox genes controlling growth of embryos. Chapter   7    elucidates   the   mystery   of   why   life   moved   from   water   to   land.      Water   has been   the   most   protective   and   friendly   environment,   but   in   spite   of   this   life   moved onto   land   which   was   an   inhospitable   habitat.   This   move   was   needed   for   future development    of    intelligent    life    on    Earth.    To    accomplish    it    were    necessary      significant body changes in animals as well as plants. Chapter   8    presents   the   history   of   the   development   of   man.   The   official   evolutionary explanations   are   challenged   and   a   new   genesis   of   man   is   proposed.   The   mystery   of the Neanderthals extinction is revealed. Chapter   9    .   The   brain   is   probably   the   most   complex   construction   that   ever   existed in   the   Universe   and   as   such   we   know   very   little   about   it.   Several   properties   of   the brain   are   described   and   the   complexity   of   signal   processing   in   human   vision   and hearing   is   outlined.   The   latest   scientific   discovery   -   the   brain   positioning   system   is explained.      The   development   and   genetic   modifications   of   the   brain   took   place   in several   stages,   the   last   one   occurring   about   6,000   years   ago.   A   few   of   the   most amazing    properties    of    the    human    mind    such    as    consciousness    and    abstract thinking are explored. Chapter   10 .   Public   perception   and   understanding   of   Darwin’s   theory   is   not   always correct,   and   so   this   chapter   provides   a   more   detailed   explanation   of   evolution.   The functions    of    the    two    fundamental    pillars    of    evolution,    mutations    and    natural selection,   are   clarified   and   their   limitations   are   exposed.   Genetic   variation   resulting from   the   sexual   reproduction   process   is   shown   to   be   responsible   for   changes   of minor body characteristics which are used as proofs of evolution. Chapter   11    describes   the   intelligent   design   theory   which   provides   an   explanation of   the   arising   of   complex   molecular   structures   and   advanced   life   forms.   A   new theory    of    directed    evolution,    which    is    responsible    for    the    generation    of    new species, is proposed and its mechanism is explained. Chapter   12    shows   that   biological   structures   obey   the   same   rules   as   engineering structures.   Two   engineering   rules,   unity   of   design   and   tolerances   are   discussed   in more   detail.   The   principles   of   the   cell   control   system   are   outlined   and   a   cell   control model   is   presented.   It   is   proposed   that   higher   organisms   do   not   contain   body design ‘blue prints’ but only assembly instructions. In   chapter   13    all   the   major   genesis   events   are   reviewed   with   the   conclusion   that they   could   not   have   happened   by   chance   and   therefore   had   to   be   organized   by intelligent   beings   as   part   of   a   special   experiment.   Identification   of   the   designer responsible   for   the   genesis   of   life   is   the   key   element   in   this   analysis.   The   purpose   of this greatest experiment on Earth is suggested. Chapter    14     provides    the    most    controversial    hypothesis    about    the    presence    of intelligent    beings    on    Earth.    Three    unusual    events    are    discussed    which    should provide plausible proofs that in spite of what we believe ‘they must be on Earth’.
