Venus volcanoes may be powered by long-ago violent impacts

Looks like plenty of catastrophism in the early solar system, perhaps when life appeared via abiogenesis from non-living matter too. Charles Darwin in his 1871 and 1882 letters on the warm little pond did not integrate early solar system catastrophism into his model to explain the origin of life on Earth using the warm little pond scenario. In fact, Charles Darwin depended upon the law of continuity operating where catastrophism would be avoided to explain the origin of life on Earth so the warm little pond could remain stable and not destroyed.
