Are barbituates the missing links to the origin of life?To read the read the rest about this downer "research", click on "Barbiturates in Darwin’s Warm Little Pond". Also, you may want to read "OOL Without Bluffing Is Nothing".
Nick Hud (Georgia Institute of Technology) is a respected scientist in origin of life research, receiving funds from NASA and the National Science Foundation (NSF) for his work. His latest paper, published in Nature Communications, claims you can get nucleotides that pair up, like nucleic acids, spontaneously – if you mix the right ingredients. What works, his team found, is a mixture of barbituric acid and melamine (more on those molecules below). These are the “missing links,” the Georgia Tech press release suggests, that could have been “brewed in primordial puddles”. Ben Brumfield’s prose tempts the reader’s imagination with imagery out of medieval alchemy:
An evolutionist is up to doing lousy science, bad logic, and even dishonesty in a vain effort to speculate what happened to cause the origin of life.
