A New Bold Theory on the Origin of Life [3:01]

Description

This video briefly mentions two competing theories for how life started on Earth, and then discusses a new thesis of abiogenesis, which describes how life arose from non-life.  The idea is based on mathematics and the Second Law of Thermodynamics, and already has some empirical evidence behind it.

Discussion Questions

  • What is the Panspermia hypothesis?  What about Primordial Soup?
  • What is the new hypothesis being proposed?  How is the Second Law of Thermodynamics involved?
  • Do you think life in the universe is rare or everywhere?
  • Without conclusive proof that life started via natural causes, is it more reasonable to believe that it did or that God caused it?  or maybe some other option?

Keywords: life, abiogenesis, evolution, nature,
