IMO, they are a rebellion against the very powerful churches, and the clergy, who claimed exclusive knowledge of the Creator. It's not so surprising, considering the state of Religion back then. The quandary for 'science' is, having rejected 'creation', it has only 'random chance' left as an alternative. The modern theory of evolution depends on random mutations, yet mutations are seldom beneficial to an organism, and, again, there's no way to prove or disprove the theory. The subject of probability was well covered in previous posts. It's not _impossible_ for anything to happen, it's only impossible based on current understanding. Personally, I tend to lean away from the 'random chance' theories, since I don't believe the extraordinarily complex machinery of a single cell could arise spontaneously. The role of energy is paramount in living systems, and there has been little research in this area. Energy is the key to understanding how living systems arise. Creation is merely a property of the Universe, any 'intelligence' we see there is our own imagination. No God required. Albert Listen to 'Strange Days...
