The book includes an updated version of the classic text The Mystery of Life’s Origin by Charles Thaxton, Walter Bradley, and Roger Olsen, and new chapters on the current state of the debate by chemist James Tour, physicist Brian Miller, astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, biologist Jonathan Wells, and philosopher of science Stephen C. Meyer.5/5(7).   For those interested in the history of science, Oparin's "The Origin of Life" is a must-read. First off, this is an excellent English translation of Oparin's work. The translator earned his pay trying to make this book readable. And most of it by:   Using evidence from biochemistry, genetics, and human origins, he writes and speaks on the powerful scientific case for God's existence and the Bible's reliability. He is author of multiple books, including The Cell's Design and Creating Life in the Lab/5(41). The theory that life on earth came in a simple form from another planet has had small currency, although the discovery by Melvin Calvin of molecules resembling genetic material in meteors has given it some force. The oldest confirmed fossils of living things on earth are of stromatolites in Australia that date to c billion years ago.

From award-winning science writer Paul Davies, The Origin of Life reveals the remarkable new theories set to transform the understanding of our place in the universe. Is life written into the laws of nature, or just a bizarre accident, unique in the universe?/5.   When Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species years ago he consciously avoided discussing the origin of life. However, analysis of some other texts written by Darwin, and of the correspondence he exchanged with friends and colleagues demonstrates that he took for granted the possibility of a natural emergence of the first life by: The Origin of Origins Most historians would say that the modern era of experimental research in origin-of-life studies began in a basement laboratory in the chemistry department of . Nevertheless, the book gives a quite up-to-date review on both theoretical and practical aspects of research about origin of life. Part of the discussion is rather A comprehensive review of key events that are proposed by the two authors during the evolution of life/5.

The Origin of Life on the Earth covers the proceedings of the First International Symposium of The Origin of Life on the Earth, held at Moscow on August , This symposium brings together numerous scientific studies on the evolutionary principles and the different stages in the evolutionary development of matter. Alexander Ivanovich Oparin (Александр Иванович Опарин ; March 2 [ O.S. February 18]  – Ap ) was a Soviet biochemist notable for his theories about the Fields: Biochemistry. The origin of life on Earth is a scientific problem which is not yet solved. There are many ideas, but few clear facts. Most experts agree that all life today evolved by common descent from a single primitive lifeform. It is not known how this early life form evolved, but scientists think it was a natural process which happened about 3, million years ago. This is in accord with the philosophy of naturalism: only . In , Oparin published his book The Origin of Life. In it he set out a vision for the birth of life that was startlingly similar to Darwin's warm little pond.
