Re: New Cellular Evolution Theory Rejects Darwinian Assumptions (Sparrow)
it is interesting that when a new idea is presented, sometimes, some people call the new idea 'waffling'.
some scientists realize that new ideas are what makes science vital.
to hold onto an idea, just because, does not serve the idea of science as a search for information.
back in the nineteen eighties, when i was taking microbiology, the idea of Woese about Archaea was new. the professor that taught the class i attended said that he thought it was a great idea.
i was glad that i was taking a class that was up-to-date about new ideas.
the article says that Woese's argument is built around evidence from transcription, translation, and replication.
in this forum, i have seen no discussion about the mechanisms of transcription, translation, and replication in relation to this theory.
i have seen comments about this information not addressing the question of the original stimulus for life.
the question of the original stimulus for life is a separate topic.
the question of the relationships between the three groups; prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and archae is a separate topic.
