What does he do? If only he had a ladder. Inspiration strikes! He realizes he’s got a ladder in the garage, so he goes home, gets the ladder, returns to the hole and leaps in, and then climbs out of the hole thanks to the ladder.

Meyer asks, “Can Pre-Biotic Natural Selection Explain the Origin of Life?” Watch and consider signing up for this great educational opportunity by going here
