    According to the bible, life is not natural, it is created.

    I myself see life natural.

    Now is that "natural" with intelligent design or without? 😛

    All of the members of the lowest order of creation (the temporal food chain pyramid) enjoy biological life.

    Human life begins and is defined by the imparting of an immortal soul at the moment of physical birth.

    Genesis chapters 1 and 2 contain four Hebrew verbs that depict God's activity of creating original human life. The male body was "yatsar"

    (formed). Interestingly, the female body was "banah" (built). God then imparted soul life. Adam and Isha were created. We were born.

    Doesn't matter. Life according to Genesis wasn't natural.

    Genesis says life is created, therefore Genesis says life is not natural.

    But you're right, life is natural, because it is not created, life has evolved.

    Sticking an artificial genome into a cell is not creating life. It's modifying it.

    My thought too at first, but then I started thinking. Give me some wood and allow me to cut it to
    resemble two ducks copulating. Did I "create" this (brilliant, for sure) art piece or (because the wood
    is a natural material) not?

    If scientists can control precisely what the end result will be, and the end result is nowhere to be
    found in nature, wouldn't you agree that it is in fact a synthetic form of life even though the building
    blocks were taken from naturally occurring life? They are after all manipulating the "wood" to
    become what they need it to become.
