    It’s interesting that scientists haven’t been able to replicate their ground hypothesis of organic life originating from inorganic materials and natural processes.

      is it really that interesting that a process that was supposed to have taken millions of years and the entire ocean as a laboratory hasn’t been replicated in test tubes in a few decades?

        I would think that if organic life could arise out of inorganic materials that there would be a universally agreed upon model of how that could happen.

          Why would you think such a thing?

          Are scientists capable of determining every single physical phenomenon, no matter how complex, and no matter how remote in time, and no matter how little direct data they have, in your opinion?

        I also find it interesting that cosmologists posit space and time began with the Big Bang, but cannot answer whether the material that made up the Big Bang was eternal, or came into being at some point.
