2019: NASA Experiment Creates Life?

… it’s important to note NASA has not created life itself in [this or any other] experiment… [and w]e don’t have concrete evidence of life elsewhere…

Have Any Scientists Created Life?  Or Something Lifelike?
The type of things that these scientists are creating are really… extremely crude and extremely simply.  In a sense it’s almost laughable to call them cells…

Origin-of-life researchers [have, for at least 20 years] now acknowledge[d] the virtual impossibility of any natural explanation for life’s origin on Earth, on Mars, on any solar system body, or anywhere among the comets or interstellar clouds.

The scientific question about the origin of life is still unanswered: it is still one of the great mysteries that science is facing.

Pssst!  Don’t tell the creationists, but scientists don’t have a clue how life began.

There are so many problems with purely natural explanations for the chemical origin of life on earth that many scientists have already abandoned all hopes that life had a natural origin on earth.

[Though some continue to try…]

… the PNAS model lacks credibility for most of the same reasons that other RNA World models do… [because 1)] frequent impact of meteorites in such an early epoch would have sterilized the surface of the Earth and vaporized the oceans… [and 2)] RNA self-replication doesn’t explain the origin of the information necessary to getting natural selection going (let alone life).  Instead, RNA self-replication depends upon preexisting unexplained sources of information… [and 3)] The authors acknowledge that the nucleobases (adenine, cytosine, guanine, uracil, and thymine) essential to RNA and DNA could not have been easily produced on the early Earth.

The obvious answer to the origin of the highly complex smartphone is that it            created itself ex nihilo.

For the evolutionary paradigm to be true, macroevolution and chemical evolution must be unequivocally established.  And they simply haven’t been.

The probability that a random sequence of physicochemical events would lead to a bacterium by spontaneous self-organization of biomolecules is negligibly low.

‘Even the simplest microorganisms known on Earth are breathtakingly complex,’ with the result that the probability of a random series of events of physics and chemistry leading to a bacterium by spontaneous self-organization of biomolecules ‘is negligibly low.’

Even though [origin of life] experiments are designed to validate a naturalistic  explanation for life’s origin, they end up demonstrating the necessity of intelligent agency in creating life from inanimate matter.

The distributed nature of biological information leads Davies and Walker to introduce a principle that happens to be key to intelligent-design theory: the idea that information is a fundamental, non-physical property that can be expressed in disparate contexts without altering the message.
