Re: Convergent evolution? How much convergence?

It sure is hard to find topics sometimes that one has been posting within...

Starting with the bacterial single cell to where we are now. One could say that we have had many cradles of life which have been caused by the environmental changes which has caused life to adapt or die.

Earth first origins project seeks to replicate the cradle of life

Re: Convergent evolution? How much convergence?

Very hard topic to find but here is my post to it.
New Study Says That Life May Have Started in Ponds; The new MIT study discusses how a 10 centimeter pond would be the ample environment for the creation of life.

Nitrogen is the harbinger of life. In the shallow ponds mentioned in the study, nitrogen takes the form of nitrogenous oxides. Within these ponds, the substance would have an easier opportunity to accumulate the compounds to bring about life, compared to the much larger and deeper oceans. So high enough concentration of all the necessary ingredients needed to create life.
