What are the views put forward by scientists about the beginning of life?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,



It is possible to summarize the views put forward by scientists in geology and biochemistry books related to the origin of life as follows:

The universe occurred 15 to 20 billion years ago with an explosion. As a result of the explosion in which elements such as helium (He) and hydrogen (H) were formed by explosions, planets and the world formed in a very short period of time. Then, elements occurred; after that, compounds were formed as a result of the combination of elements in a period of billions of years. Life started on earth 4.5 to 5 billion years ago.  It is put forward that the first atmosphere of the world consisted of water vapor, methane, other hydrocarbons, cyanide acid, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. It is stated that O2 joined the atmosphere as a result of the photosynthesis of plants, that organic substances were synthesized as a result of continuous electrical discharges and that animal organisms were synthesized from those organic substances. Some of those views are worth supporting. However, many of those views of scientists are baseless.1
