What We Know About Abiogenesis (So Far)

This is one of the better abiogenesis videos that I'm aware of. Do not confuse it with evolution, as that is the mechanism for the diversity of species, not the chain of events leading from organic chemicals to the first life. This is what abiogenesis is. Remember, we know that with the Earth's composition at the time, we have already proven in the lab that we can go all the way from the basic elements through amino acids. Hint: Amino acids are the building blocks of DNA. Think we're nowhere near figuring this out? We don't need pixie dust or anything else supernatural to fill in these gaps any more, so why should we? I only ask if you are going to comment and argue with what I or the video say, at least WATCH it all the way through! If you have a similar video with an opposing viewpoint that you want ME to watch and/or critique, let me know and I will do my best with it!

Hilarious little completely unrelated clip:
