Word For The Day : Abiogenesis

The Origin of Life

 Miller-Urey Experiment.

Stupid Questions : Is there any fossilised ( or any other form ) of evidence of the first types of cells ( or protocells or the earliest traces of the necessary organisation of molecules ) / life on Earth? If not, is there any specific reason why not ( if you are able to find relics of slightly more evolved species ) ? Did the fact that life subsequently evolved to cellular form ( as we recognise it ) necessarily terminate the process by which life arose from non-life? And at the same time destroyed the earliest evidence ( or rendered it unrecognisable )?
