Wow. Just...Wow.

I haven't read all of the article yet, but that is pretty amazing. And it seems to me that it should have some real implications for abiogenesis research.

Of course, the creationist will ignore it. First, they have zero curiosity. Second, it won't fit in with their world view. Sad.

But...Cool, chemistry in action.
