Re: Earth could hold more water (Mike Kremer)
And in any case there was no Oxygen around on early Earth. Latest thinking goes that it has all been produ8ced by Algae, or green vegetations.
the "latest thinking" of many may well (does in fact) go that way...but not due to any evidence
it is due to a philosophical commitment to the billions of years evolutionary scenario...in that scenario, such had to be the case or "simple" life forms would never have gotten started because the amino acids would not have linked to form proteins in the presence of oxy (free)
in reality...the geological evidence and implications suggest that free oxy has virtually always been present
