Terrific effort there exchemist in expounding how clever and resourceful Nature has been to bypass ID in coming up with nifty chemical cascades such that: So with the discovery of chemical cascade reactions, cracking unguided OOL completely is perhaps just over the horizon? A few contra considerations: 1: Any accompanying homochirality and of the correct sign in any of these RNA/DNA units, amino acids, and lipid building blocks? If not Nature is still screwed. 2: There must have been many other reaction products apart from the desired ones. Will they magically hold off from reacting with and in effect poisoning the desired products? Hard to believe. A key observation of Edward Peltzer in 'Abiogenesis - The Faith and the Facts'. This issue bears heavily on the feasibility of e.g. RNA/DNA unit unbroken polymerization to the requisite large biologically active lengths. And did I mention homochirality maintained throughout? Which still leaves out the origin of information content required for cell reproduction and repair being somehow encoded in those (hopefully) long chains. 3: Peltzer also pointed out a simple lipid layer enclosing some notional primitive self-reproducing system (so many begging questions just there) may protect the protocell contents from environmental poisoning, but also works to kill the protocell anyway. That's because it would result in waste product buildup while simultaneously preventing new feed-stock from entering. In addition no feasible clever instruction sets and communications systems to allow protocell division are on offer. Or self-repair for that matter. What a pity - our miracle protocell evidently is doomed to die a very lonely death. But hope springs eternal that such 'minor wrinkles' will all be solved in the bye and bye and via purely unguided mechanisms. Keep on dreaming. Keep up the faith.
