Where do we come from? There are many right answers to this question, and the one you get often depends on who you ask.

For example, an astrophysicist might say that the chemical components of our bodies were first forged in the nuclear fires of stars.

On the other hand, an evolutionary biologist might look at the similarities between our DNA and that of other primates’ and conclude we evolved from apes.

    I’m happy that you’re making use of the word “might”.
    Otherwise I would totally disagree.
    Being an astrophysicist doesn’t automatically mean that your opinion of origin of life is different than that from an evolutionary biologist.
    In fact, if you’re knowledgeable enough on this topic, then you are well aware that we could have evolved from an ape-like species AFTER the original components of our ancestors’s bodies were forged in the nuclear fires of stars billions of years earlier.

    So, a smart Astrophysicist and biologist will both be fully aware of this.
