The origin of life on earth is one of the oldest questions to ever plague the mind of man. Innumerable theories have been proposed to answer this question; each theory with as many plausibilities and improbabilities as the last. The Origin of Life symposium was held in 2007 at Mcgill University, bringing together four experts in their chosen field of study to discuss four intermingled yet opposing theories of how life arose on our home planet. At the end of the lecture the audience is not left with answers but rather a larger tool belt to attack this question head on, themselves. When attempting to tackle a problem as large as “where do we come from?” it is useful to start with what you do know rather than what you do not. What the scientific community can agree on is that the young earth had a plethora of organic compounds lying about, and that life as we know it requires water. That is about all that the scientific community can agree on.
