In the beginning …

18 March, 2006

I mean, take the theory of evolution. (Yes, It’s just a theory.)

Over millions of years, living creatures evolve and diversify because mistakes in genetic replication cause them to have new features that make them better adapted to the enviornment in which they live.

So they prosper, and the whole evolution and diversification things rolls on.

Neat, huh?

But at some early stage, there was no DNA, even no RNA to facilitate this process.

At some early stage, there were just chemicals.

What caused them to bundle together into amino acids, the so-called ‘building blocks’ of life?

How did it benefit those inanimate chemicals to work in that way?

Did all this happen by chance?
