The Unanswered Question of All Time: How Did Life Begin?

Updated on September 6, 2012

Being Human... and trying to talk about us...

A Question that needs an answer, and we are here to take this bull by the horns. We see people fighting for their most minimal rights or causes, and our mind with this inner '3D bio scanner' starts to figure... how and when did we start our own existence. Just thinking: our anatomy and how we reproduce ourselves sexually. How did we learn to replicate the most insignificant actions and feelings?

Is nature just a mirror of our actions? I might say, not quite; we are a product of nature and its evolution. But we try to deliver a logical and believable answer to the issue of life and its beginning. We did ask the experts on another site, and their answer was that they didn't know or were not sure after all.

Abiogenesis, was there for the academics and their P.H. doctor degrees. Studying amino acids and this Soup theory didn't convince us at all. How can you be certain of something that you never experienced it yourself? We could just infer from lab testings and theoretical models that life started from nothing... like the dust they talked about in the holly scriptures were hiding the clue.


We have to come up to terms with the Christian belief of our creation and we can accommodate our perception to a final convincing thought.

  • We come from other entities that eventually became our ancestors
  • Going behind those proteins and amino acids there is a mutual link that has not been disclosed yet, to our understanding.


Love and feelings

We were born out of love and those deep feelings. Where did all come from? There is still a link going back, that has been avoiding anthropologists and Biology. Explaining the unexplainable can be sickening, but leave traces of veritable facts. We know that behind this human race there was a past. Not pointing directly to a superior being that must've known of our weakness. But if we wanted to start life from amino acids, enzymes and proteins, we certainly needed some basic knowledge of DNA replication and' intelligence' to make these first molecules and somewhere down the line start twisting themselves to create the first living organism. Now, that was kind of easy... but where did love start? Can you imagine an amoeba kissing another amoeba for the heck of it? Where did we start to love then?

We need to eat but...

If we are made of organic products, we know that we need to feed our hunger. But who started the 'need' to put a piece of meat in our mouth? How was that proto paleolithic ancestor taught how to eat? Probably genetically we learned from those primary organisms from Precambrian era. There was a beginning to all, and there was some kind of director for this orchestra. We can think of some extraterrestrial intervention... of some kind.

Following the path to that past we find carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and other molecules. But we are walking back in time and grabbing important conceptual facts. What we are sure and any one will agree, is that life on earth was not a casualty. Some can say these out-of-this-world life starters brought these probes and let them have their own growing after our planet started to become livable. Others might give God the benefit of the doubt (creation) and forget about science.

When you see your hands next to each other. When you see a woman in front of a man, the eye to eye contact. we know there has been a natural 'replicating isomerism' from nature. Sex started somewhere, like life itself. Besides eating, our amoebas, learned how to procreate and reproduce themselves. Our anatomy was a product of million of years of trials. For some reason, eroticism and attraction came into play. Is hard to picture our caveman getting inspired to say or spell some loving words, after coughing off. Once a self-replicating molecule took form, sexuality was born. From the moment our ancestors knew that life was not forever, they started to 'learn' the process of mating. Nature was so complex from the beginning of all, that we boldly can declare that before us, there was a more complex being that took care of this evolution. Do you think that an alternator was engineered itself for its sole purpose of keep your electric system going?

The Big bang and stardust

Supposedly and theoretically, the Universe started with the biggest explosion, but how can we imagine our infinite space? Where and how can we actually reach the outer limits of space? By the time we finish this article, we will close our IPad and go to rest in peace. But again, we are not satisfied 'at all' with our concept of creation. If we were just a piece of stardust traveling from nowhere, how come or who was able to control gravity and a quasi-perfect universal evolution? Right now we are writing thoughts that our neurons think is the best. But Is there some intelligence beyond the creation of life? Would you build a house on your own in the middle of the Sahara desert? Where do we leave fate and spirituality in the picture?


7 billions and still unique

Every single human being is unique and we know it so well:

  • Zaleek is waking up in Saudi Arabia to check his father's Oil Corporation assets
  • Pedro from Argentina needs to save more money for college and is trying to sell more of his cattle.
  • Sarah from Dublin is finally playing the Violoncello the way she always wanted to
  • We ourselves are in the process of publishing our first novel
  • Armando from Ciudad Juarez Mexico has no choices and joins 'some' paramilitary organization.

So, is there a plan behind creation?

We think there is a plan and has been concocted million of years ago. We all are unique and different. Our earth is still holding on tight regarding our hopes. Wherever we came from and how life started it won't be fully explain during these generations. Our lab models cannot explain the real origin and we do not blame them. Not against science and its thermodynamics theorems, neither our religions, but intelligence was behind creation.


Science through bio-engineering and abiogenesis did attempt to recreate the time and moment when the first enzymes helped to break down the strands from the primitive DNA double helix information contained in those genes; the paradox in here is that we need proteins to produce proteins. Recent experiments suggest it would have been possible for genetic molecules similar to RNA to form spontaneously. And because these molecules can curl up in different shapes and practically act as rudimentary catalysts, they 'may' have become able to copy themselves...

If life started one time, when is it going to end? Our Sun is half way done, and we have to work on studying ourselves thoroughly. We cannot understand how our protocells started to learn how to hate and...kill.

    Hi Brian,

    God is love, and can hardly can go by his teachings. He is out there for every one. We can call him the creator, the beginner of all, but our love is limited. Religion is ours. His kingdom is for all. If we missed mentioning his name, well he doesn't have a name...that we for certain know. He is up there, and most call him God.

    Wow.. this is a unique approach at explaining the possibilities of evolution. Very interesting. I hope we get all the answers to these questions when we die. I don't think our human brains can fathom the true nature of science. Congrats on your upcoming novel. I am looking forward to that. Great hub!

    I find the theories interesting reading, but, how do you explain God into the whole of the picture?

    Hi There RealHousewife,

    We had some DREAMS for the last 3 nights, and we decided to get some answers. Thanks for your commenting and support!

    Wow! This is pretty heavy - but I loved it. They do say amino acids are the building blocks, eh? Very interesting writing and you are very knowledgeable about science! Great hub!!
