Origins of Life Links

  • Links
  • Broken links
What is the earliest evidence for life on Earth? If you click on the links at this site, you’ll discover it is a “page not found.” If you move on to read about life beginning on Earth 3.85 billion years ago, you’ll find the same information. Basically, the earliest information about life on Earth is not found. Could that be a perverse joke? The site’s evolutionary timeline is not so consistent with an actual running tally of major events in the history of life on this planet. Apart from the early oversights of the page, Origins of Life has an abundance of info relating to early life on Earth. The famous Stanley Miller experiment is another “page not found,” but other important information in links can be found through Access Excellence. Sadly, the “page not found” is the most common page on the site, so be prepared to be frustrated as you navigate through the impressive sounding links of the site. Though the annoyances are large, the Origins of Life Links page does have several interesting pages of content.
