According to Erika DeBenedictis, “one of the big limitations of biology are the basic building blocks themselves.”
Dr. Miller explores more problems facing the idea that life began as strings of RNA.
Any evolving system of RNAs would quickly include almost exclusively RNAs that performed no biologically useful actions.
Without all of the described investigator interventions, a system of replicating RNAs could never emerge or even sustain itself.
I suspect this challenge will not be widely heeded. Studying these issues will lead researchers toward a conclusion they simply are not willing to accept.
