Yes, it seems "U.C.L.A. geochemists have found evidence that life LIKELY existed on Earth at least 4.1 billion years ago" (emphasis mine). The article quoted below (www.cbc.ca/news/technology/study-finds-evidence-life-on-earth-arose-much-earlier-than-thought-1.3280114) states that "Life existing 300 million years earlier than science thought is the most logical and simplest explanation." But... as Mark Harrison, geochemistry professor, University of California, Los Angeles, puts: "this is not smoking gun evidence." And Stephen Mojzsis, scientist, University of Colorado says that "This is what transformative science is all about. If life is responsible for these signatures, it arrives fast and early." (Mmm... But isn't there a "consensus" among scientists?! Don't they all agree? Oh, but, well, I guess that applies only to "global warming," right?)

“Study finds evidence life on Earth arose much earlier than thought – If theory bears out, life on other planets would be more likely too”
