Re: DNA

Yes, these atoms must have held a conference to decide whether, if they clung together, they could do so with or without a permeable membrane to hold them all together. Obviously they decided a membrane was a good idea, so they popped along to B&Q and bought one. It made replication so much easier. And then they started knitting together all the information needed for self-replication since they didn't like the idea of an outside design influence messing up their independence.
