Genesis Bomb, explanation

by Richard Ong

This is the last of the four images I worked on the past month. The title of this artwork is "The Genesis Bomb." What if, just like in the movie Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, life on Earth appeared as the result of a controlled explosion made by an advanced civilization? The single planetary crust begins to separate, releasing a gaseous mixture into the atmosphere, boiling the otherwise lifeless sea with a mixture that will transform it into a primordial soup rich with all the basic nutrients essential to the formation of life.
