The first primitive living cells could appear in the waters of fresh lakes, which is heated and saturated with minerals prehistoric geothermal sources. Most geologists and evolutionary biologists believe that life on Earth in its modern form originated in the waters of the primary ocean that covered almost the entire surface of the planet.

It is believed that this ocean was a thick broth of amino acids and other “building blocks of life,” from which came the first living cells.

A group of geologists and evolutionary biologists under the guidance of a native of Russia, Evgeny Kunin from the National institutes of health in Bethesda (USA) has offered a new argument in favor of the alternative theory of the origin of life in freshwater lakes, in which water enters the steam and hot water from geothermal sources.

In recent years there have been a lot of evidence that the activity of volcanoes and other geothermal processes played an important role in the origin of life, reports ” RIA-news “.

So, in February 2010, British and German geologists have proposed a new theory of the origin of life, according to which the first cells emerged Continue reading
