Information had to come first in order for a molecule to replicate into a continuous species over time and along the way natural selection and random events caused the structure of the molecule to change and thus evolution occurred. Random events, information and natural selection are all relevant to the origin of life because they provide a starting point as to how life manifested on earth and continued to thrive in existence up till now. Life first had to require inherited information to encode genes so that cells could replicate and continue survival. DNA, RNA, transcription and translation made the pro- cess of encoding information into genes possible.
