Intriguingly, the precursor molecules used by Sutherland’s team have been identified in interstellar dust clouds and on meteorites

Don't created things need a "Creator"..?

I mean if we could look at the earth before life emerged then I think our first impression would be "No Way" could you get a human from this. But that is exactly what happened.
I think the wider the view we take the more interesting and wondrous the place we live in.
However, a sacrifice first has to be made: we must throw on the fire all our comforting certainties, and be willing to accept what the universe presents us.
