Did complex life originate on Earth … did any life “originate” on Earth!?
My guest tonight, Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe, firmly believes that it did NOT.
His model (along with the late Fred Hoyle) is that “life” originated “a long, long time ago …and [maybe] even in a galaxy far, far away ….”
And, yes, that Octopi — so the best genetic evidence currently suggests —
did NOT evolve on Earth!
Join us … for a totally fresh look at “where did we [biology] REALLY come from ….”
