One of the dumbest science concepts in the press this year is the claim of “making life from scratch.”
Your building materials are shown below. Have at it.
Charles Darwin can be forgiven for having made the mistake of believing that there was such a thing as a “simple life form.” We now know that all life, all cells, all molecules, all atoms, and all particles are incredibly complex.
And the First Law Of Thermodynamics makes it abundantly clear that you can not make anything “from scratch.” Anything you build necessarily starts with preexisting materials.
