“But what if polypeptides and other biopolymers had formed in the prebiotic soup?”
“Biomonomers presumably linked together to form the first proteins, nucleic acids and other biopolymers.”
“Finally, in this brief summary of the reasons for my growing doubts that life on earth could have begun spontaneously by purely chemical and physical means, there is the problem of the origin of genetic, i.e., biologically relevant, information in biopolymers.”
