I’m recreating my series of 15 organic gardening lessons in 2016/2017.
We don’t know exactly how life on earth got started.
Some people believe God created it all about 10,000 years ago.
Others believe it evolved – starting 3.5-4 billion years ago – as bacteria, microscopic organisms that are composed of only 1 cell.
(For comparison, our current best guess is that the average human body has over 30 trillion cells, and incidentally, there are in the neighborhood of 40-100 trillion microorganisms living in our bodies – more of them than cells – most of them bacteria, and most of them probably integral to our health.)
