Hello everyone.
I've been a big fan of this forum for some time but this is my first post. So please be gentle.
I had a question pertaining to the creationist claims that science has not adequately demonstrated how life came to being on this planet.
Now back in high school (and during one semester of university biology), there were discussions pertaining to the Miller-Urey experiments showing how more complex molecules could form from rudimentary material. My question is, what additional key evidence do die hard creatists require? Is it the fact that experiments have not produced self-replicating life yet that is the stickler point?
Also, since this is not my field of expertise, are there currently additional experiments being performed that are looking to bridge the gap between less complex inorganic forms and organic life?
