Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... goes on These changes, called inversions - constituting a flip of the order of DNA sections - tally with latitude and, by implication, with ambient temperatures. So these inversions are proportional to average temperatures. This of course means that random mutations are clearly not involved ...
