    Philip Ball, author of the book, "Life's Matrix: A Biography of Water," says that liquid water is essential for the kind of delicate chemistry that makes life possible. Liquid water is a universal solvent, a mediator of life's chemical reactions, and it has a structure unlike that of any other liquid.   Franklin Harold's In Search of Cell History is a wonderful book. Harold has for 60 years been an intelligent and clear-minded researcher and observer in the fields of cell and molecular biology.

      Life’s Rocky Start is the story of Earth’s billion-year history, told through the eyes of a mineralogist who has undergone a sort of transformation himself. I began as a mineralogist. The Nature of Life and Death is a compelling mystery, an ode to the natural world, and an engrossing account of a female scientist whose passion, expertise, and deep curiousity created an entirely new branch of crime solving.” —Cat Warren, author of the New York Times bestseller What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs.

      2. “Whatever we are, whatever we make of ourselves, is all we will ever have—and that, in its profound simplicity, is the meaning of life.”―Philip Appleman. The Nature of Theories on Origins. On the other hand, the theory of creation and the theory of evolution are attempts to explain the origin of the universe and of its inhabitants. There were no human observers to the origin of the universe, the origin of life, or, as a matter of fact, to the origin .

repair of DNA damage. 20 It is a temptation to think of “life" as a protein-making gene system. But this could not have been the origin of life.

Not only is it far too complex to have developed spontaneously, there is a chicken-and-egg paradox: No proteins without DNA to code for. Until recent years the origin of life and its possible occurrence elsewhere in the universe have been matters for speculation only.

The rapid growth of molecular biology since has, to be sure, made it possible to discuss life's origins in far more precise and explicit terms than was possible earlier; and the subject entered a new experimental phase in the 's with successful abiogenic.

Get this from a library. Life its nature and origin. [Jerome Alexander] -- "The purpose of this book is to present in coherent order sufficient facts regarding material biological phenomena to show that life is dominated by catalysis--the direction of chemical change by.

Life in the state of nature was one of the peace and ease. Freedom and tranquility (harmony) prevailed. Men were bound by the law of nature and possessed certain natural rights, but there was the absence of an agency to interpret and implement the law of nature, so men agreed to create a common authority.

Life - Life - The origin of life: Perhaps the most fundamental and at the same time the least understood biological problem is the origin of life.

It is central to many scientific and philosophical problems and to any consideration of extraterrestrial life.

Most of the hypotheses of the origin of life will fall into one of four categories: Hypothesis 1, the traditional contention of theology.

In this stunning, magisterial, and surprisingly wide-ranging book, Eric Smith and Harold Morowitz approach the origin of life from first principles and bring together knowledge from astrophysics, geochemistry, biochemistry, information theory and statistical mechanics to show how all the hints and constraints we know so far about lifes start and the universal patterns of life weve found compel /5(5).

History is the study of life in society in the past, in all its aspect, in relation to present developments and future hopes.

It is the story of man in time, an inquiry into the past based on evidence. Indeed, evidence is the raw material of history teaching and learning.

In From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time, CalTech theoretical physicist Sean Carroll — who might just be one of the most compelling popular science writers of our time — straddles the arrow of time and rides it through an ebbing cross-disciplinary landscape of insight, inquiry and intense interest in its origin.
