Beginning of Life
A few years ago, off the coast of Greenland, an amazing
discovery was made possibly the beginning of life on Earth.
Although the subject is anatomically deteriorated because of its age, scientists
believe its biochemistry was similar to that of every life-form that has evolved
How did it get here? Scientists look to the sky. Comets seem to be one of the
keys because of their chemistry. Comets are sometimes made of water, ammonia,
formaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide. These are all key ingredients that form
amino acids. And what are amino acids? They are proteins necessary for life!
Millions of years ago, comets hit the earth leaving their mark and debris on
Earth. These days, scientists seem to think that the “stardust” that fell from
the sky may have been what propelled the creation of life.
The dust from comets, meteors and comets themselves could have possibly seeded
the planet. This would have led to the creation of the first organisms on the
planet. This also would have proved that Darwin's theory of evolution was
The Father of Prebiotic Chemistry, Stanley Miller states, “Organic compounds
organized themselves into something that was self-replicating. Once that
happens, away you go. You’ve got Darwinian evolution!”
