A conversation between a mom and her 12 year old daughter. "Hey, Mom."
"You have a minute?"
"Sure, what's up?"
"I watched another program on the Science Channel that was talking about how life began on earth. I'm good with what you and dad have told me, but I just want to make sure I have it down. Can you help me by going over things again?"
"No problem, glad you asked! You remember that there are really only a few ways that modern science thinks how life could have begun?"
"Yeah, uh, one is that over a long time, like billions of years, stuff that was all organic..."
"Erin, I think you mean inorganic."
"Right, inorganic, that means not having any life, Okay. then after a long time either because of heat, or electrical energy from like lightning, or something, the inorganic stuff became life stuff."
