The History of Life on Earth
Conditions on early Earth made the origin of life possible
1.Nonliving or abiotic processes create small organic molecules, like amino acids and nitrogenous bases
2. These small molecules form macromolecules, like amino acids and nucleic acids
3. These macromolecules are packaged into protocells, which can have a different chemistry than the rest of the surroundings
4. These protocells developed the ability to self-replicate
Synthesis of Organic Compounds on Early Earth
Every cell needs macro molecules including enzymes. Macro-molecules are questioned if they existed since the early days of earth. Simply by dripping solutions of amino acids on to clay or rock. This was without any need of an enzyme which is thought to be how the earth did it before.
