A question about origin: Where did I come from? Where did the origin of life come from?
(JBH) We do not know. Those who know the most about biochemistry say that at present their best guess is that the first replicators were RNA strands on the edges of undersea hot-water vents, when the chemistry was quite different from what it is today. Research into this question is continuing.

In a rather testy exchange today reporters grilled the White House Press Secretary about the current administration's decision to move from a civil to a criminal stance regarding people crossing the US/Mexican border.

I am looking for secular owned businesses. I can't seem to find anything online for anything like that. We launched Humanist One on June 1st and have put a directory listing link on it. If anyone is a secular business, please put a free listing on the site at humanistone.com. If you don't own a business (or have a product or service to sell), and know someone that does.... Please guide them to the site. Thanks, Sam
