My father's name was Darwin. And he was never wrong.

Re: Was Darwin Wrong About Where Life Started?

The entire World came from "outer space" whether it formed by coincidence in a rock pool, or next to a thermal vent at the bottom of the sea, or whether a meteor was the final thing to bring an organism that could develop into an algae or what ever is pretty immaterial.

Either way the fundamentals of what Darwin proposed is pretty much bang on.

We are still debating quite what route Mankind travelled to become what we are today, it seems we on average have about 3% Neanderthal genes, but that is a very late development at 230,000 years ago. 55 Million years ago first primates evolve, 8-6 Million years ago Gorrilas and chimps arrive and Humans apparently diverge from that lineage around that time. around 5.8 Million years ago Orrorin tugenensis the first bipedal human ancestors evolves, and it has been down hill ever since. Around 2 million years ago we start to be more like "us".

Considering the leaps in understanding, and the fossil evidence and specific sites and partial bodies that have been found since Darwins time, he did a bloody good job with his Theory of Evolution.
