That theory is plausible, considering that life on Earth definitely originated and first flourished in the oceans -- whether the first sustaining life forms began in tidepools at the oceans' edges or from around geothermal vents deep within.

well I wasn't going to post this before because of all the other stuff that went on forever in the other "God post", but now that this post was posted here it goes,,

some 3 or 4 weeks ago I saw a Science TV show whereby a Scientist took a Sterile Test Tube and froze it and ran Electricity threw it and a Dark Goo started growing in it, the Scientist said "proof of life from nothing", nothing but a Sterile Environment and the Electricity that represented Lightening..

Wasp, here you go...

http://www.nasa.gov/topics/technolo...res/uracil.html
NASA scientists studying the origin of life have reproduced uracil, a key component of our hereditary material, in the laboratory. They discovered that an ice sample containing pyrimidine exposed to ultraviolet radiation under space-like conditions produces this essential ingredient of life.

Pyrimidine is a ring-shaped molecule made up of carbon and nitrogen and is the basic structure for uracil, part of a genetic code found in ribonucleic acid (RNA). RNA is central to protein synthesis, but has many other roles.

"We have demonstrated for the first time that we can make uracil, a component of RNA, non-biologically in a laboratory under conditions found in space," said Michel Nuevo, research scientist at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. "We are showing that these laboratory processes, which simulate occurrences in outer space, can make a fundamental building block used by living organisms on Earth."

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

So you're saying my great great great great great great great great great great grandfather was a black smoker?

Pretty fascinating and makes life in other places a whole lot more likely.

I think the world (our world) is ready to meet our 'neighbors' as they say.

When in doubt...auto out

No but he may have starred in one.
