The RNA World hypothesis…


The RNA World hypothesis is a difficult one to accept. It seems to improbable that RNA evolved alone into that elaborate mechanism of self-copying. We prefer believing that other enzymes catalysts evolved separately. (1) Sure. It is like we do not like the idea of a DVD Recorded evolving alone. And we break it up into pieces so that we can imagine its self-evolution better…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!

  1. Erik Andrulis – I am a scientist with experience in cell and molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry. I have a proven track record of pioneering technologies and ideas to dissect the living cell. I am a theoretician who compiled a unified theory of life, one third of the complete and consistent theory of the universe. This theory proves that I am the theoretician and theory in one.
    Erik Andrulis says:

    As someone who is an RNA biologist, I am unaware of any “RNA hypothesis.” Do you mean the RNA World Hypothesis? If so, the notion of RNA’s self-replication (“self-copying”) is a misguided one (i.e. Eigen’s hypercycles, ribozyme-mediated self-templating), as RNA does not replicate itself.
