Sorcerer Posted October 1, 2004 Share Posted October 1, 2004 It would be very interesting if scientists could repeat... umm, know what's it called in English *checks dictionary* abiogenesis? Well, what I mean is the event where lifeless matter became living matter (or an early stage of actually living matter). If the evolution theory was a wooden tower, creating life from lifeless matter / repeating the abiogenesis would indeed be like steel girders to fortify that tower... Ok, lousy metaphor but you get the idea. I think its more likely to observe it happening on another planet than be able to recreate the environment needed to do it here. This is because in my opinion there were a variety of micro-climes which contributed to the chemical evolution of life, each had a particular role to play, chance also had a role to play, I don't think staring at a vat for eons will get you any kind of practical experiment.
