Please pardon this digression in the name of the Almighty Science. Its ways are multitudinous, its adherents are just, ethical, loving, kind, and smarter than you (1). And then did some of the more intelligent beings on the planet, come to believe that life did arise from outer space. Not from E.T. (2) did it arise, or perhaps it did (3). Before we do become confused and think that real scientists could ever believe in space aliens, we must retract our statements (4). Let us not be misunderstood. We were feeling magnanimous to the IDiots that day. Sorry about that…we are no longer feeling that way. Since the ‘warm little pond,’ has been so hard to find, we turned to the cold rock in space. There, some of us did find what we were looking for, the key to the beginning of the life form to which we all owe our existence (praise Science). But as for certain DO we know, life did arise from non-living matter. So, we do not now think in silly little ways like either/or (Earth or Space). We do know that the early conditions of the Earth and Solar System were quite chaotic. The Earth did become bombarded by meteorites containing organic compounds (ahhhh….life-to-be units). The young little Earth did receive more complex molecules from space that we know were well on their way to becoming biology. Not actually biological themselves of course, but to-be-life units. Or perhaps, they could have been biological units, which arose in a more favorable soup such as Mars (already-life units). So, we do admit this is a bit of digression, and we do know it may be just as false as every other idea we’ve had, we also do know, that everyone who does have even half a brain (5), knows that abiogenesis did occur. So, soon, soon indeed, we will tell you how it happened.
