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.

    Point of origin? 4.3 billion year old fossils? Ha Ha Carbon dating is not reliable or been proven and besides it might be able to go back 5000 yrs. Makes sense in a world that is only about 6000 yrs.old.

    The illuminating stars we see at night were, just as was the whole universe, in that ‘smoke’ material. God has said in the Quran: “Then He turned to the heaven when it was smoke...” (Quran 41:11) Because the earth and the heavens above (the sun, the moon, stars, planets, galaxies, etc.) have been formed from this same ‘smoke,’ we conclude that the earth and the heavens were one connected entity. Then out of this homogeneous ‘smoke,’ they formed and separated from each other. God has said in the Quran: “Have not those who disbelieved known that the heavens and the earth were one connected entity, then We separated them?...” (Quran 21:30) Dr. Alfred Kroner is one of the world’s renowned geologists. He is Professor of Geology and the Chairman of the Department of Geology at the Institute of Geosciences, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany. He said: “Thinking where Muhammad came from . . . I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years, with very complicated and advanced technological methods, that this is the case.” https://www.islamreligion.com/articles/212/quran-on-origin-of-universe/
