“Reductionism means that with the smallest possible number of laws you can explain as many as possible phenomena. At the end we want one theory that would explain everything. In science, we don’t desire to have a theory for every phenomenon. We want one theory that would explain all the forces of nature, all the particles of nature and so on.”   — Mario Livio


“It does not matter whether they came here from another planet or not but an important thing is the origin of the first life. More important than even the matter is the information itself which is stored in the matter. But where did that information encoded in the DNA and RNA come from? We don’t know.” — James M. Tour 


We all have the general Oparin’ view, that life on earth originated from prebiotic molecules … There is no demonstration that life really started that way, as nobody has been able to replicate the process in the lab.
— Pier Luigi Luisi
