Apparently, life on earth is one of the most debatable and contradicting idea that many people seek to proof. From religious beliefs, non-religious beliefs to the scientific level, much has been done to determine the origin of life (Behncke 56-57). Many theories have been put forth to explain this phenomenon, but still, every day there will be a different and probably not related to previous researches on how life began. Every day there is a new life on earth, be it aquatic or non-aquatic, plants or animals including human beings. It is clear that life began million years ago, given the history of people, rather scientific findings too that seek to support life’s origin. For this reason, this paper will focus on the meaning of life, but most importantly, how it came about.
Our planet is full of living organisms that might be taken for granted, but it raises one of the most important questions, where did life on earth come from? Where is the origin of life? Many people different meanings to life, while others assume it is by lack, others take it as a miracle living. However, as it is known, life can be described as a molecular system capable of reproducing itself from one generation to another. The most fascinating fact is that life is only present on planet Earth, whereas another planet just like Earth there exist no life. This fascinating fact is what leads to the research, which seeks to determine the chemical composition, mass, physical and astronomical parameters on Earth planet. That might proof the origin of life and its cause as well as explained in the paper (Emiliani 371).
Some theories, panspermia, explains the origin of life different from the “spontaneous” origin, which explain the origin of life being another place from the universe that came to Earth on a rocket. Arguably, there are many theories and hypotheses showing life’s origin, which all seek to explain an understanding and a possibility. However, the possibility of God Factor, Soup factor and Galactic factor will be explained in details.
It is always clear that everything with an end surely has a beginning. For life, people often know how it ends, rather, it is always clear that its end is death, but what is kits origin? Despite many efforts surrounding the urge to know and understand life’s origin, still, it is clear from research that it only exist on Earth planet only. By focusing on all the theories stipulated in the paper, from the assumption that life has an origin and specifically on Earth. Much understanding will be gained with an almost sure idea of where life began on Earth.
