What caused living organisms to come into being? Many scientists have tried to discover the answer to the mystery of life’s origins.
In 1952, scientists demonstrated how amino acids could emerge from ammonia, hydrogen, methane and water. However, while amino acid formation is easy, building proteins is practically impossible if left to chance chemical reactions.
Dr. Paul Davies suggests that the answer to biogenesis lies not only in chemistry, but also in information.
