Re-reading this, I just noticed that he also claims to have cracked abiogenesis! After all his "creation of bacteria" starts with inorganic compounds and ends up with... well, bacteria. Someone should call the Nobel Prize committee!

Reminds me somewhat of Atomic's Bible, another book reviewed on this illustrious site:
"You can take an acorn apart and see two of its structive [sic] components, the hull and the kernel. You know there are the three components in all, the third being the life-giving image of the kind of oak that acorn will grow. Then that image has to come from the atom, so we shall study the atom parts and find the life-giving image within the atom."
It's bananas all the way down, begorrah!

We need to roll Benjamin Zarr out for the creationism crowd. Not only is life not what observable, tested-and-confirmed science says it is, it's really nothing more than pollen and water and heat. Kind of like a big ball of bread dough but without, you know, yeast, which would be alive, which would sort of defeat the whole argument (if it's an argument) by this writer (if we can reasonably call a bull goose loon a writer). Sic the creationists on this. They need something to do besides hammering on their tautology gong.

The secret is in the phrase 'reduce the whole [fruit] to an ash...' - been smokin' them banana skins again, Ben?
