The Darwinian theory of evolution is excellent at explaining how life evolved through the process of genetic mutation and natural selection. However that process is not adequate for explaining all of the changes that occurred to life, in particular how did life form from inorganic matter (water, rocks, molecules, etc..)plant-lifew

A new hypothesis may shed some light on this problem. Life tends to be better at dissipating heat than non-organic matter (a lump of carbon atoms for example). A plant absorbs energy from the sun and releases in the form of infra-red radiation. According to the laws of thermodynamics the universe always tends towards greater disorder (greater entropy). And while the appearance of life on earth may seem to be going against that trend (in life there is more order than in non-life), the overall entropy caused by the heat dissipation is still greater. The earth is an open system (energy…
