I'd never heard that quote before. Interesting one indeed.

But actually we all came from unliving proteins, din't we? :)

Yes, or else the whole primordial soup hypothesis would be incorrect.

Can you prove it? Stanley Miller cannot prove it yet ;)

Not yet, but sometime in this life-time, hwo knowes ?:D
I know many experiments concerning this are conducted, and some of them succesfully.
And that is the most plausible hypothessis, isn't it?

It seems like everyone ask me to create some time-machines and go to the past...hahaha... :lol:
Just wait and see who will break A.J. Oparin and J.B.S. Heldane's hypothesis... :wink:

victor: this reminds me of your SPMB test. Miller's experiment referred to Urey's theory, not Oparin's. That's why I answered the statement as "false" :wink:

Actually the Miller/Urey experiment as done before the discovery of black smokers. And there have been experiments where the black smoker environment has yielded some interesting organic chemistry. Anyway, the abiogenisis question has a lot of differing theories so there's more work to be done in that field.

They are hot hydrothermal vents (under the sea), which release black 'smoke', mainly composed of sulphur and iron.

Lol... My mind went to a black person that smokes... And i kept thinking what has this to do with biogenesis?
