Marine abiogenesis seems also more economical than its terrestrial counterpart, which would imply early replicators migrating to the ocean, and lifeforms returning to colonise the surface much later (if I understand it correctly).

This discovery also deals a blow to the Clay Theory (clay is alkaline), which received Richard's support.
