Miracle #12: Humility
Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny....
Please, don't draw us any more diaphrams.
Its the yeast you can do.
Your 'self-replicating' molecule is a bust:
This molecule had no capacity to build itself from scratch out of neucleotides.
They had to provide an artificial 'soup' of half-beasts. When the supply runs out it stops. Thats obviously dead in the water in minutes, not a program that can run for 3.5 million years.
The main point is that the molecule CAN'T replicate itself.
It can only make a couple of lucky connections by being a landing-zone for half-pieces.
In the second place, crystals aren't compounds, they are just self-organizing surface structures that only work typically by submersion in a salt solution. You can get the same result in a room full of rubber balls at McDonalds.
Not at all. It only demonstrates self-repair, in a collective, communistic sense.
Not even one strand of RNA was manufactured out of singular nucleotides or other basic materials. Instead, conveniently, RNA strands were synthesized, broken in half, and repaired again by jostling them onto receptor-sites.
This isn't RNA generation at all, which is what "replication" would and should mean,
to a real scientist.
This is just RNA pre-synthesis and assembly.
Its as if you had a favourite son who was a hopeless retard,
unable to fall out of a wheelchair, let alone tie his shoe:
So you build a thousand copies of the Eiffel Tower out of Lego.
Then you carefully break them exactly in half.
Now you pass two halves to your idiot-son,
and after a struggle, he manages to stick two halves together every few hours.
You keep it up until most of the towers are re-assembled.
Now you announce to the world that your idiot-son
can build the Eiffel Tower out of Lego! You get him on America's Got Talent.
You aren't booed off the stage instantly,
because the whole crowd cries with you from pity and compassion.
No one dares shout "Fake! Fraud!"
Instead, everyone donates $10 to your favourite charity,
Oh yes, its a miracle! But not the kind you meant.
