|I saw on an other forem that www.lifeorigin.org have offered a million dollars for scientific proof of how life started spontaneously. Why would anyone do that? Hasn't it already been proven?|
My nose is on duty for the scent of a troll here, but anyway....
Nope. Nothing in science is "proven." The only facts we know of are found in math. To answer your question more specifically, Abiogenesis is one of many holy grails within science. Among cures for Cancer, AIDS, and self-perpetuating machinery, there is the cause of life. Scientifically, it's not nearly as widely accepted a theory as, say, Gravity or Evolution. However, the conclusions out there fit, and until one of them is shown to work under the circumstances that existed back then, we'll only approach the topic with an open mind and assume several of the differing ideas are possible.
