I question the idea that the cell arose before DNA, as a sort of
blank proteinoid sphere that sat around waiting for DNA to take
advantage of it. Aren't all real (not '-oid') proteins synthesized
via DNA? It seems more reasonable to theorize that DNA was
reproducing haphazardly and then subsequently hit upon the
cell structure.
