Did a series of huge explosions on the sun shoot blobs of gaseous matter into deep space which turned out to be the solar system and life in it's earliest form, ever changing form?
I read about such explanations many years ago, but it never sat right with me. Any explosion big enough to send planet-sized blobs of solar matter millions of miles from the sun would likely send those blobs on a one-way course beyond the sun's gravitational pull.
An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Newton's first law. For the sun to spew out a Jupiter-sized blob that just happens to come to rest in Jupiter's orbit, it wouldn't have been an explosion, it would be more like the sun having a bad case of constipation and expelling a big poop... in slow motion.
