I would say that natural aboigenesis is a conjecture and that there are various hypoyheses about how it might happen. Such as RNA first, or protein first, or even metabolic processes first. These competing hypotheses might be half right, one might be right, a combination might be right, or they could all be wrong. None has been confirmed or rejected yet.<quoted text>
What is a hypothesis? Lets take this a step at a time this way no gets lost this time.
So you are right to make the point though its a bit nitpicky.
