Not belittling the achievement at all but it wasnt really from scratch if you consider that a lot of intentional designing went into it. Human intelligence on the basis of prior knowledge that it had gained till that point of time along with the technological advance  gave rise to that DNA ! what made the first DNA on earth in absence of all that !? A random set of events !!!?


But then based on that definition Angie, nothing could be cooked from scratch due to prior knowledge requirement. I think random course of nature created DNA in the first place. Although I have to think deeper on other facets. I've been away, but when I have time I hope to gather my thoughts and questions on how lifeless particles formed life and where consciousness as we know it comes from.

In any case, let's narrow down the possibilities. The possibilities are that we could have living, non-living and something in between. And that is exactly what we have. We have living (example: humans, animals and plants), non-living (example: rocks) and something in between (viruses).

The "law" seems straight forward. Start with void (or be void at all times). Now, is it possible for something to appear in void? It appears so. After that point, (for some strange reason) dualism took over. Particle, anti-particle. Attraction, repulsion. Living, non-living. Everything we know lies on that scale. Some are polar opposites while some are just shades in between the polar opposites.


Interesting point.
