Info - Do Prions Exist?

I don't have the time or interest to go through the whole article right now. It seems that, if they exist, Prions — short for proteinaceous infectious particle — are infectious self-reproducing protein structures. One thing that I found interesting about the bits I skimmed is that the whole model of looking at things from each side seem different. The fellow arguing against the existence of prions seems to be starting with observations and talking about them. The fellow arguing for the existence of prions talks about the prion hypothesis and the evidence for it and the lack of evidence that would disprove it. I'll be curious to read it later and see if it's really the case.
