comment What is Luc Montagnier's research on electromagnetic signals from DNA about?
@TomD Being a Nobel laureate doesn't make him immune from criticism. I read the paper a while back, and it is just extremely bad. He makes an absolutely extraordinary and implausible claim, but the experiments and setups described in the paper (rather badly and without enough detail) are prone to noisy results or contamination.

This question is rather broad, I'd suggest to read the papers and make your question more specific. On the other hand you might not bother with this topc at all, the entire thing is complete nonsense.

comment Large scale reverse transcription?
Can't you use the template you used to synthetize the RNA? You'd need two restriction sites to remove the parts you don't want, but using DNA to synthesize RNA and then using that RNA to synthesize DNA again seems a bit cumbersome.

comment Is Zymase, A Complex of Enzymes? Which ones?
The linked german paper is a reproduction from 1935, so I don't think it is evidence that the term is still used

comment Is evolution true as Darwin said?
You're using some rather strange terminology, your first 4 points are generally not called evolution, the Big Bang and abiogenesis are not part of the theory of evolution. And the division into macro- and microevolution is misleading, it is exactly the same process.
