  1. Probing analysis presents a problem

    I congratulate Kim and Caetano-Anollés for a very probing analysis. But I think the conclusion presents a problem. A precellular "urancestor with functional complexity similar to that of extant life" is very hard to understand within darwinism. I expand upon this point slightly in an entry, "...more functional protein domains than the first cells!," and suggest another explanation on my blog about panspermia.

    I have no competing interest. (But I advocate a competing theory.)
