New insights into the origin of life on Earth.

Being a spiritually inclined person, I have a big difference of opinion about the article on origin of life on earth that appeared in Digg.

Excerpts of the article:
"In an advance toward understanding the origin of life on Earth, scientists have shown that parts of the Krebs cycle can run in reverse, producing biomolecules that could jump-start life with only sunlight and a mineral present in the primordial oceans.

The Krebs cycle is a series of chemical reactions of central importance in cells — part of a metabolic pathway that changes carbohydrates, fats and proteins into carbon dioxide and water to generate energy".

What do you think of it?
