Primordial soup” is a term introduced by the Soviet biologist Alexander Oparin. In 1924, he proposed a theory of the origin of life on Earth through the transformation, during the gradual chemical evolution of particles that contain carbon in the primordial soup.

Biochemist Robert Shapiro has summarized the “primordial soup” theory of Oparin and Haldane in its “mature form” as follows:[1]

  1. Early Earth had a chemically reducing atmosphere.
  2. This atmosphere, exposed to energy in various forms, produced simple organic compounds (“monomers“).
  3. These compounds accumulated in a “soup”, which may have been concentrated at various locations (shorelines, oceanic vents etc.).
  4. By further transformation, more complex organic polymers – and ultimately life – developed in the soup

  1. Great composition, colour and texture Deb, I really like this one! Looks like some form of paint stick on heavy textured paper? Can I request you list size, colour and medium to your work, I’m interested and I’m sure others are too. Thank you

    1. Wow, coming from you John, I take that as a compliment. I needed a shot of validity today, so thanks for stopping by and commenting!! For this piece I used paint sticks over a colored ground on 9 x 12 stretched canvas.

      1. thanks for the information Deb.
