This scientific theory sounds so far-fetched that it might not even make a campy cosmic movie. It seems a couple of scientists are pushing a theory that the first earthlings migrated from Mars on a rock.
According to Space News, in an article published Sept. 9, 2013, these two are as serious as phosphate, a nutrient that serves as the backbone of DNA. In laymen's terms, supposedly there is a stumbling block called "boron" (it rhymes with moron) that shatters the notion that life could have ever started on Earth. The problem appears to be that Earth never did have enough boron to give life a start; but hold for it, Mars did.
Boron is a vital element precisely because there's no way RNA can develop without it. RNA is scientifically accepted as both the "earliest expression of genetic replication" and an "essential precursor to life as we know it." In a nutshell, the theory is that it is possible that life form microbes migrated to Earth on "rocks kicked up when a meteorite struck Mars," took root and earthlings bloomed.
If folks don't quickly buy into this latest scientific notion, it could be because scientists have been trying to find a provable theory about how life began since, well, since the first scientist. None have proven any theory yet.
Still, they keep trying and some think this latest development is as likely as previous scientific hypothetical theories, from the Big Bang to evolution. What's your favorite?
