One of the greatest mysteries of all times is how life originated on Planet Earth. Even the most basic and primitive cells are incredibly sophisticated and complex mini-universes that defy explanation as to how they formed. Did life come from space, or did it appear spontaneously here on Earth? Is the origin of life unique to Earth, or has it happened many times before in other planets and moons of the Solar System and the universe? Did life start with RNA or DNA, or none of them? Did meteors carry life to Earth? Was Earth different than it is today when life started on this planet? Did life appear when there was no water on Earth? Life is truly a miracle. Investigate about the origin of life on Earth and write an essay about it. The questions provided above are to motivate you to investigate about this topic; you do not need to answer them one by one. The essay must be at least three paragraphs long, and each paragraph must contain at least five sentences (you can write more than three paragraphs and more than five sentences per paragraph if you wish to do so). The content of your essay must be written entirely in your OWN words. Use in-text citations in parenthesis, APA style, if you paraphrase information from other authors. Paraphrasing is not copy-pasting or copying and changing a few words from other authors’ writings – it is writing it in your OWN words to explain the authors’ writings. Only when necessary, you can quote, but these quotes do not count towards the last tally of the number of paragraphs and sentences required from your OWN writing. You must at least consult three references to investigate about this topic and must list these three references at the end of your essay (use APA style). You must submit your assignment using SafeAssign; your assignment will not be evaluated if it is not submitted through SafeAssign.
