The Story of Life
Once upon a time there was time, more time than the human mind can imagine, billions of years, time enough to do the impossible, time enough for things that seem like magic to occur.
That is the incredible story of life, how it began and how its inception was more astounding than god and almost as unlikely.
Step by slow step the unbelievable happened. The slowness, unlikeliness and wonder of it, is beyond our conception. We would rather believe in dragons, magic and supernatural creatures who are spawned from nowhere, just like the universe itself.
But life did not come from nowhere. It formed ever so sluggishly by chance through more time than we can understand because it had all the time in the world.
In the primordial seas the chemicals accrued. All they needed was chance, the way molecules naturally develop, and time beyond imagination.
That is hard to believe.
We know it happened because we are here to tell the tale.
