Flaws of Life in a Tube

... near deep-sea hydrothermal vents in modified Miller-Urey experiments. In recent analysis of the vials produced by the experiments, far more biochemicals were uncovered than previously thought, including 23 amino acids rather than just 5. Also acknowledge the fact that the Miller-Urey experiments ...

Why a I hving a hard time with Biology

... out (eg, that red blood cells carry oxygen they've picked up in the lungs to the organs) - all cells are made up of an immense range of complex biochemicals, mostly made up of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen, plus some 'trace' elements like sodium and phosphorous. - when genes randomly ...
