One piece of information that scientists lack is the origin of information itself.


DNA is a complex code of information that codes for the formation of amino acids, proteins,lipids, and the assembly of these molecules into a functioning cell.

How and where this complex information code came into being is a mystery. Presently no theory explains how DNA, or RNA came into being. So the history of life does not have a coherent beginning.
