Methane and hydrogen sulfide aren't energy rich molecules? You might want to tell the modern-day organisms that rely on these molecules for energy that they're doing it wrong.

You're talking about a sophisticated organism. The subject of this post is the initial life form. Completely different issues.


That's not quite true. Arguably one of the most important processes for modern cells, glucose transport is mediated by diffusion through a passive transporter in the vast majority of cells.



How is that any different than selective diffusion...which is passive. "Transport" would seem to suggest active. Active requires coupled energy.

Wait, are we talking about the Bible (particularly the Genesis account) again? Or maybe the definition of "irreducibly complex"?

I said nothing of either of those.

But, yeah, you are all open to non-bias discussions.
