Earlier this week, Bill Nye debated Ken Ham in a little museum in Kentucky. Buzzfeed, ever delighted to turn pop culture spectacles into listicles, asked 22 Creationists to write questions they would ask a person who believed in evolution (and here’s the parallel article of 22 messages from evolutionists to Creationists).

Here are my responses.

9-question 9-response(Note: entire books can be written on the answer to this question, but it’s likely that the formation of DNA preceded the formation of the first single-celled organism, but this answer focused on how a cell-like structure might “spontaneously” arise without the intervention of a Divine Creator. To clarify: organic compounds that are hydrophobic will aggregate together to form large bubbles rather than mixing with water — similar to micelles which can be created in your kitchen by mixing oily/fatty substances with water — which probably formed the basis for the first ‘cell’, although that cell would be pretty primitive. However, if it formed around pre-existing RNA and nucleotide monomers (which this theory postulates pre-exists), it would have all the building blocks for creating a proto-cell.)

(The real answer is because both humans and current monkeys are related descendents from an ancestral primate. We didn't evolve from modern monkeys.)
