Will we ever create life in the lab?
What will it mean? Will it mean that God isn’t necessary? I don’t think that’s necessarily so.
A basic cell is irreducibly complex. It can’t be created step-by-step. It needs all of it’s parts at the same time in order to work at all. Some say we will find a way, but I don’t think so.
And what is the component called “life”? What is that special thing that separates the living from non-living matter? Is there really an elan vital, an essence, that makes living things?
We can all feel it, but people deny it. I know it is there.
This is one component we will never be able to create. That is God’s domain.
