Textbooks include a picture of Miller-
Urey apparatus with caption claiming or
implying that the experiment simulated
conditions on the early earth
No mention of experimentís flaws
Leaves student with impression that it
demonstrates how lifeís building blocks
formed on the early earth.
: The Miller-Urey experiment probably did not
simulate the earthís early atmosphere; it does not demonstrate
how lifeís building blocks originated.
