Adamic RNA World
Most likely Adam was constructed by RNA only but Eve completed the DNA double helix and from then on it was all DNA. I'll let ya know for sure when I get to heaven by faith in Christ.
Please update with: "A prebiotically plausible scenario of an RNA–peptide world"
I think it would be good to add some brief info about this to the article and/or the article abiogenesis. It's currently featured in 2022 in science like so:
Scientists close a missing link in the potential origin of life from a RNA world – synergistic formation of peptides and ever-longer RNAs or peptide-decorated RNA, leading to a protein world.
Concerning the first reference used there: the paper didn't say it helped grow "ever-longer RNAs" or did it?
Another thing that may be good to clarify is whether there were separate peptides, normal RNAs and peptide-decorated RNAs or just a few of those. The paper is so unclear about it, it may obvious/self-explanatory to some but I haven't read all of the study just to find that out.

Loads of prebiotic molecules found in Milky Way?
FWIW - (For being aware only of newly published relevant studies - not necessarily to incorporate into the main article) - On 8 July 2022, astronomers reported the discovery of massive amounts of prebiotic molecules, including for RNA, in the galactic center of the Milky Way Galaxy. - Stay Safe and Healthy !! - Drbogdan (talk) 13:09, 10 July 2022 (UTC)
