"Self-Replicating RNA"?????

A recent culmination of research provided the following paper:

Self-Sustained Replication of an RNA Enzyme by Tracey A. Lincoln and Gerald F. Joyce.

It was touted as evidence for self-replicating RNA and "evolution in a bottle" (SciAm).

The research is leading edge stuff and should give us a glimpse at the reducibility of living organisms.

If this paper is any indication, origin of life research isn't looking so good.

I say that because all the synthesized RNA did was make- catalyze- ONE connection.

It took two pre-synthesized sections and joined them together.

The "evolution" came with variance of sequence but the new sequences still performed the same function (the original sequence "died out").

This is a start and I hope they continue to see how far they can go-

Sooner or later the "mainstream" will come to realize what IDists have been telling them- living organisms are not reducible to matter, energy, chance and necessity.

    Why did you close the comments of the thread where you were threatening everyone with meetings?

    Aren't you a retiree? You should be taking it easy, not getting too excited...

    What thread?

    What threats?

    What does your comment have to do with the topic of the thread?

    Or are you just making sure that no one forgets that you are an idiot?

    How else should one interpret "You are a piece of shit Kellogg and you had better hope we never meet even though I am going to try to make that happen."? You should take it easy, keep the blood pressure down and all that, Joe.

    I'm posting here as I can't put it on the other thread because comments are closed. Thanks!

    Rich,

    When you invited me for a beer, was THAT also a threat?

    No, it's an offer of a beer, or sherry or whatever retirees drink ;-)

    There's no "You are a piece of shit [insert name] and you had better hope we never meet even though I am going to try to make that happen." involved.

    Offering me a beer is a threat.

    And I am coming out of retirement to open a bakery- specializing in cakes.

    But anyway if [insert name here] is a piece of shit and deserves what it gets, is it still a threat?

    It's only a threat if it's miller, joe ;-)
