I am not aware of another thread like this exist, so I am going to start a new one. I am wondering do we know how the first simple organism is created yet? I remember when I was a young child, I heard about scientists who tried to create a simple organism by creating an aritificial early earth environment with exact atmospheric composition, a protein soup, lightning strikes, and etc... but still can't form any kind of simple organisms. Do any of you know anything new in this topic? I recalled someone theorized that the first organism is not formed on earth but maybe another planet. There is a big difference in complexities between proteins and the oldest single cell organism found. If that is the case, scientists can't create life because there are missing steps they don't understand.
