It should be obvious: if you are controlling the mutations and selecting the outcomes, you are not doing Darwinism.
If you “listen to the experts,” or anyway some of the experts, cells are “little bags of garbage” and Miller-Urey is a “true simulation of prebiotic chemistry.”
Elaborate schemes to explain the origin of the genetic code from the laws of physics and chemistry miss the whole point about codes.
Oparin is back. Some origin-of-life researchers are using his coacervate theory without giving him credit or realizing they are retreading dead-end ideas.
