    Drunkenness and gluttony are both sins in Scripture, yet Jesus said those who are whole do not need a physician, but those who are sick (Luke 5:31). So indeed, it does seem to be both.

    I believe the ribozyme was part of a system, not a self-replicating standalone replicator.

    And I did respond to your question in my response to TheLurch here.

    Now we are nitpicking, you know that is not what I meant. But I need TheLurch to post probability calculations with the time frame before the events.

    Good point, though then you need two ribozymes, one to do the replication, and one to replicate. And the nucleotide sequence was included in the paper, in figure 1A.

    No, but I can allow +/- 10% and still find it improbable.


    Though allowing each nucleotide to vary, and the length as well, would seem to include multiple structures too.

    That's a good point, So let's say all the nucleotides are flexible, it's twice as probable that a given nucleotide will work, and calculate 297 cubed, which is 1 in 4 x 1087.
