The current view of most planetary scientists is that Earth's early atmosphere consisted of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor - not water, methane and ammonia.



A Miller-Urey type experiment using the "correct" early Earth atmosphere, as understood today, produces nothing in the way of amino acids or any other organic "building blocks"



The Miller-Urey experiment was invalid.  Of historical interest, no more.

Expertise

I can answer questions about evolutionary mechanisms and theory, including genetic drift, mutation, natural selection, etc. I also can clear up misconceptions about evolution as it's sometimes talked about by those not well-versed in the subject (e.g., some politicians and many religious fundamentalists).

I have a Ph.D. in Biology, and presently teach Evolution and Biodiversity, Genetics, Botany, and Zoology at the University of Miami.
