    The answer could be two Japanese scientists.

  5. "Matsuo and Kurihara created a non-living building block capable...."

    Matsuo wrote, "Synthesizing novel molecules, I construct artificial cells or life to explore universal answers to the questions of "origin of life" and "what is life?" from the perspective of supramolecular chemistry."

    There is clearly a creator, a designer involved in this study.

    I think her conclusion sums up the matter very well:

    In this case, the differences between a chemical-rich droplet and a functional cell membrane are numerous. For instance, the latter must distinguish between fuel and waste, allowing only the right molecules to pass into the cell and the right molecules to exit. Even the most generous calculations indicate that the likelihood of droplets coalescing with the needed properties around an extremely rare (nonexistent?) RNA molecule are essentially nil.

    In contrast, the appearance of a fantastically improbable set of molecules carefully configured together to achieve a function goal shows the unmistakable signs of intelligent design, a source of causation we know well from daily experience. Design, unlike unguided chemical processes, requires no strenuous exercise in imagination.​

    No, it was two creators (add another, and one could have called it a trinity).:)

    Clearly you did not get what I was intimating in my last post to you.

    Maybe this will make the same point but with more clarity?

  10. I don't think the same point is being made in the video you just posted AND the previous video you posted:

    But then, maybe, it just needs more of a stretch of the imagination than I am capable of?

    There is no need for a stretch of the imagination with Professor James Tour's video. It clearly lays out the scientific problems with abiogenesis.

    Did you even watch that video to try to get all his points?:)

    Here it is again, in case you missed it:
