This is how I respond to correspondents who ask, get a very specific, unequivocal answer, and still pretend that I was "unresponsive". There was a very specific quote from the discussed source, stating that natural selection appears AFTER self-replication.
And that very specific quote was not referenced in my post to you. I specifically referenced a different quote in your post, Anyway, no sane biologist/biochemist would confuse origins of life with evolution of species, and directed your attention to that. You ducked, pretending it never happened (speaking of just a little intellectual integrity to discuss with a minimum of honesty).
But . . . if thats the best you can do . . .
