The complex structure of the cell was unknown in Charles Darwin’s day. For that reason, evolutionists of his time imagined that chance and natural phenomena represented a satisfactory answer to the question of how life first came to be.
Darwin suggested that the first cell could come into existence in a small, warm waterhole. The German biologist Ernst Haeckel, one of Darwin’s supporters, examined under the microscope the mud brought up from sea bed by a research vessel and claimed that this was an inanimate substance that turned into living matter. This so-called life-assuming matter is known as Bathybus haeckelii (Haeckel’s mud); and those who first proposed the theory of evolution imagined life to be just such a simple matter.
However, 20th-century technology investigated life down to the very finest detail, revealing that the cell was the most complex system yet discovered.haeckel's classification, haeckel's drawings, haeckel's embryos, haeckel's embryos fake, haeckel's law, haeckel's margate, haeckel's three kingdom concept
