DNA replicates itself. The DNA molecule is the "parent". What does that have to do with Creationism?
Biology is the science concerned with the study of life. ... The current definition is that organisms are open systems that maintain homeostasis, are composed of cells, have a life cycle, undergo metabolism, can grow, adapt to their environment, respond to stimuli, reproduce and evolve.
NASA defined life broadly as "A self-sustaining chemical system capable of Darwinian evolution." While this definition is open enough to include a wide range of potential life forms, it also makes it hard to design a simple test for life.
Where do you get that DNA is formed from amino acids? DNA is a polynucleotide. Amino acids are formed from peptides.
I think you have your sequence of events wrong.
