I have often seen stated in these forums that no scientist has ever created life in the Lab and this somehow disproves or sheds doubt on the Theory of Evolution.
This shows a clear misunderstanding of the Theory.
First of all the petri-dish that got life going was the whole earth and a lot of time (millions of years). There is no way to recreate those c ...[text shortened]... random stuff self reproducting patterns can most definately occur without outside intervention.

Please explain furthur.
I am not aware of any hickups. I hope you realise that DNA does not equal life.
Originally posted by HalitoseSo you believe that God is deciphering DNA in every living Cell all the time and without him life comes to a stop ? Interesting.
Exactly. It is also just a mumbo-jumbo of nucleic acid combinations without some form of intelligence to decipher it.
The only way DNA is 'created' is within a DNA controlled cell. A lovely circle for which I see no beginning.
Originally posted by OmnislashActually, based upon the chemical composition of old rocks we can pretty much say that there was probably relatively little oxygen in the early atmosphere. All oxygen in the atmosphere was 'liberated' from water during photosynthesis.
While the problems with dead chemicals creating life are numerous, the most interesting one (for me) is the atmospheric conditions.
Our current atmosphere consists primarily of oxygen (21% ) and nitrogen (78% ). The presence of oxygen in a primordial atmosphere creates a problem for notions of self-assembling molecules. If oxygen is present, there woul ...[text shortened]... rocks and the distribution of minerals in early sedimentary rocks.

I repeat DNA is not equal to life nor is it a requirement for life. Of course the definition of the word life is debatable, but nevertheless there are very simple things like Viruses and structures within the cell which repro ...[text shortened]... ense".

I never asserted that God is deciphering DNA, a shameless strawman and red herring on your part. The cell itself deciphers the DNA, hence you need an already functioning cell.
