Coacervate Formation Evolution and the origin of life are not necessarily parts of the same process. Mechanisms operating when life came into existence may be quite different than the mechanisms which cause and control evolution. In addition, every indication is that life began billions of years ago, left little if any evidence of the process (no "molecular fossils"), except living organisms, and has not taken place since. In contrast, evolution (which provides an explanation for the diversity of life) has left fossil indicators of past lives, and shows every indication of going on today and into the future. Therefore, evolution is much easier to study, with an abundance of various types of evidence. With the continuation of research going on today, we may indeed eventually have enough circumstantial evidence to describe a plausible scenario for how life began. Under certain conditions, proteins, carbohydrates and other materials in a solution can

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
