Rehabilitating the Miller-Urey Experiment?

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines a new claim by origin of life theorists who seek to rehabilitate the now-discredited Miller-Urey experiment. If life didn’t originate in a “vast primordial soup,” did volcanoes perhaps play a role? Listen in as Luskin explains how far “plausible prebiotic conditions” are from making life.
