Loren, I very much appreciate your two articles, and have saved them
for profitable rereading.

As I have noted in other postings, I am skeptical about the RNA world
hypothesis.  However the hot mineral springs [or thermal vent] hypothesis
and the arguments for it are persuasive.

Thanks for the postings.
