What a great idea, Rod! Thanks for the link. (And what's the FB Evolution group? I'd love to take a look.)

Thanks Bob I found 'Darwins's Dog' to be just what I was looking for.

Yup, it has only been up a month. I set it up but there is  bunch of us  from a Facebook Evolution Group  that are contributing to it. Much of the inspiration comes from creationist Facebook Groups that we keep getting banned from! :)

Heh, nice. What is that site, something like The Onion, only mostly leftist-leaning?

@Justin

 

On the subject of whether or not polypeptides have a function on their own, keep in mind that polypeptides are largely what enzymes and coenzymes tend to be. And you basically pointed this out where you said: "There is some very interesting chemistry on using simple polypeptides as catalysts for different chemical reactions." By saying that, you basically illustrated the exact function of enzymes and coenzymes.
