Is everything we know about how life began wrong? New theory claims DNA and RNA 'rose together' at the same time

A radical new theory claims that how we thought life began on Earth could be wrong.
Most scientists back the  'RNA world' hypothesis, a well established theory for how RNA molecules evolved to create proteins and DNA.
However, a new study led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute instead says RNA and DNA evolved simultaneously four billion years ago.
