Ribozyme experiments suggest that for life to originate, what was needed was a goal in mind, an agent in charge, with the means to implement a preconceived plan. We have a name for that.
Writing at ENV last month, I explained why proponents of intelligent design are justified in using the term “molecular machines.”
Researchers at the University of Illinois used phylogenetic modeling methods to evaluate the evolutionary history of the ribosome.
Jet Propulsion Laboratory has the burden of showing that Coppedge engaged in “harassment,” that he “targeted” co-workers.
Much of current origin-of-life research suffers from a myopia where researchers hone in on solving a particular problem without contextualizing their solution.
