Biology Textbooks Get It Wrong on Life’s Origin

Fuz Rana has a great synopsis on the Today's New Reason To Believe about the fundamental problem with the naturalistic origin of life scenario. Take five minutes to read it. I think you'll be glad you did.

Hmmm.... certainly Miller-Urey got it wrong about the earth. But it is possible if not likely that they got it right about a small gas giant of a pre-sol solar system. One whose sun went nova sending pieces of its gas giant as comets streaking towards the proto-solar system. Could the planetoid that struck the earth to create the moon have been a large "ice chunk"/cometary body from such a nova-destroyed gas giant carrying the builing blocks of what became life on earth?

So much conjecture, of course, cannot be taught as even hypothetical, but it can be a point of discussion.

For technical discussion on this issue, I will refer you to the book, Origins of Life by Fazale Rana. He explores many different theories such as the one you propose.
