ALL life is made from non-living chemicals. None of the water in your body is alive. None of the atoms in your body is alive. And yet you, a living thing, are made from these non-living things.<quoted text>Let me know when you have created life from nonliving materials.
No, we do not have the technology to arrange non-living things on our own and make a living thing. But we can look at living things and understand that their fundamental components are not alive. Life is a matter of how the non-living matter is arranged and how it interacts and not of anything added on to the atoms.
