How Life Began

Today on Far Future Horizons we explore the origin of life on Earth. How was non-living matter transformed into life and sentience? What was the firing pistol that started the evolutionary race to ever increasing complexity from simple organic matter to matter that has become alive and aware?

Roughly 4 Billion years ago a strange and mysterious phenomenon occurred. Non living matter became life and eventual evolved into consciousness. 

Ever since then nothing has been the same on Earth. How could something as complex and astonishing as life just happen? 

A Timeline for the Origin of Life
