October 1, 2000 Los Angeles, California - Geologists recently announced the discovery of the oldest known life in earth rock on Akilia Island, Greenland not far from the capitol, Nuuk. That early carbon trace indicative of metabolic processes is probably residue from microbes such as bacteria. The strange truth is that all the oldest sedimentary rocks found so far have evidence of life in them. No one has yet found a sedimentary rock devoid of carbon traces. So, when exactly did life begin on Earth?
