SJ: More likely when their "biases" are so different and they still agree on the
lack of "relevance of the experiments of Sidney Fox" the reason is that
Fox's experiments *are* irrelevant!

A mere personal opinion which allows you to ignore Fox's work on protocells.

SJ : I would expect that Behe thinks that *all* origin of life experiments to date
have been implausible, but the Fox proteinoid microsphere experiments
have been particularly implausible, because they don't even impress the
majority of researchers in the origin of life field.

Poor argument which focuses not on what Fox did but on what others think of it. I guess using that logic, it is clear that Behe's arguments of IC are not impressing the majority of researchers either.
