Could "smokers" be the origin of life on Earth?

In the ocean's deepest depths, strange "chimneys" are at the core of an extraordinary ecosystem. They could even be the origin of life on Earth.

    Microorganisms are the earliest known form of life found on our planet. Some samples are from billions of years ago and found around those vents!

    No, this chimney is not be the origin of the earth because that chimney has to be created also.

    The vents eventually die out and the entire entire ecosystem goes with them... Then new ones pop up somewhere else and the process starts over again

    Life has been created there and through millions of years it created all the diversity we got today. If you cannot fathom this, you'll need to close the bible and pick up a science book.😉😉
