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’.
