How did life start on earth? What was the first life?
Well the way I see it (and I'm not an expert, so there might be other ways out there)
There's evolution and creation...
I believe in evolution myself...that we all evolved over time from a single celled organism etc. I don't really believe in God at all, but everyone's free to their own opinions.
we could be decendents from mars, we could of evolved, we could of been out here a more powerful being, we could have mutated from an older race that was living on earth. if you can think it, its a possibility. the first life was probally single celled organisms
Odd, 7 hours and no one's chimed in with God?
Well they claim basical compounds (H2O, CH4...) combined to form basic biomolecules and eventually formed cells, odds are the first life was a single celled organism
I am interested in the idea that a meteorite crashed into earth carrying some type of basic replicating molecule. But then you have to wonder where that thing came from. Ah, the possibilities...
a molecule (or even something else) gained the ability to make copies of itself– replicate. and evolution bagan. the replicating function was replaced with DNA.
God Created it. . . . on purpose. . . other wise we are all a big accident.
