Abiogenesis – Proof of Concept

In what some people are referring to as a sort of ‘proof of concept’ for abiogenesis, a group of scientists have managed to create chemical replicators that are closer in function to what may have existed during the ‘RNA world’ phase of the Earth’s history. (Look it up on Wikipedia.) I like to keep an eye on scientific developments in certain areas, and this is one of them. It would be incredibly if somebody could actually confirm not only that abiogenesis was responsible for the rise of life, but offered a solid case for precisely how it happened as well. Obviously that’s not likely to occur any time soon (if ever), but experiments like this are small steps in the right direction.
