According to the article, a molecule called AEG has been found to exist naturally. This would give weight to new and improved theories on abiogenesis.
Now, I'm no expert, but I was curious what this forum's more knowledgeable members would think about these developments.
Now most naturalists often still have to reply that ''we do not yet know for sure'' when pressed on this facet of the orgin of humanity. Is this a major step towards relative clarity on abiogenesis?
Seems like a orgin of life topic to me, but it's mostly a news topic, so other more relevant subforums also could work.
Title might also need rephrasing.

Adding a little more, evolutionists are fond of pointing out that the origin of life must have been a gradual affair involving copying with modification and selection, and looking over the article it presents the possibility that PEG might have preceded RNA as the basis for heredity, just it is RNA might have preceded DNA.
