Primordial soup idea overturned?

Post by Sirius_Alpha on 2nd February 2010, 2:37 pm

From Physorg.

"New research rejects 80-year theory of 'primordial soup' as the origin of life"
http://www.physorg.com/news184336191.html

It is proposed that life was kick-started through chemiosmosis at volcanic vents on the ocean floor.

I have to wonder... why cannot all of these theories be valid?

As I understand it, once you get life started through a certain mechanism, that first life is automatically dominant. Life emerging through another mechanism later on will find itself unable to compete with the life already present. This may be why we do not see bio-genesis today.
