Note:“Scientist created,” the DNA didn’t self create. Then scientist injected the man made DNA into a cell. The DNA then replicated itself. This is a case of forced assembly.<quoted text>
Actually, scientists have created life from non-living material. http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2010/05/sci...
Life is not incredibly likely to form randomly. Doesn't mean it's impossible, however - there are countless planets out there which are very similar to earth.
Oh, and one hypothesis is that life actually started on Mars and was transported to earth via meteorite. We've only just begun to research the surface of the planet, though, so we won't know for quite some time.
Man-made DNA has booted up a cell for the first time.
In a feat that is the culmination of two and a half years of tests and adjustments, researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute inserted artificial genetic material — chemically printed, synthesized and assembled — into cells that were then able to grow naturally.
