A scenario of the origin of the very first ribonucleoproteinoid virus-like complexes, which is based on their synthesis in the interlaminar spaces of clayish grain regolith of the primitive Earth, about 4 billion years ago when water in the form of liquid drops first appeared. The proposed model explains the origin of chirality of modern biopolymers as a result of preferential adsorption of biomonomers on such grains.
