I forgot to say that there is another possibility in an atmosphère composition wich was completely different. Maybe some other kind of molecules wich support life were be present and stable, and it is after that all the organic molecule that we know appeared.

I don't think it's the human cell because human cell is the type of cell that can live if supported by the tissue which surrounding it...while cell's ancestor is believed kinda live solitary (I mean without tissue support..)

@Pitch
ancient atmosphere is different from now because at that time, there's not much oxydator like Oxygen..

Don't be rude please. We are scientists, civilised people not primates(not monkeys either ;) )

Who said we are NOT primates? We ARE! Human, monkeys, and apes ARE primates! :) Check your taxonomy book 8)

OF COURSE their DNA IS different to each other because they ARE different species :)
