Sorry, but I don't go. Scientists can re-create natural phenomenon by re-creating what they did not create to begin with, i.e. lightning. They can just re-create that too. "Re-create" being the key word.<quoted text> I watched the Carl Sagan series 'Cosmos' on PBS when I was young. I now have it on dvd. Anyway, in one part of the series they recreated the earth as it was back when it had first form into an actual planet. Then they introduced a spark (lightning) into the picture. Amino acids (building blocks of life) formed on the glass inside. There you go.
One amino acid in a controlled and contained environment doesn't re-create the miracle of all life on the planet or the mysteries of the universe.
