← Protein flaws responsible for complex life, study says

The title is so misleading. It suggests that ALL of complexity arose by protein flaws. I am not denying that protein structure can contribute to complexity, but these "small" flaws however cannot be passed on from one generation to the next, unless these "flaws" themselves are a result of gene mutations. Otherwise, occurrence of dehydrons will be totally randon, and won't have any 'meaning'.
