Gerald Joyce, quoted in commentary in Science (1992):Obviously, Harry [Noller]'s finding doesn't speak to how life started , and it doesn't explain what came before RNA. But as part of the continually growing body of circumstantial evidence that there was a life form before us on this planet, from which we emerged - boy,it's very strong!
