Simple question/thought in regards to Creationism and our future endeavour into creating an organism. But... Wouldnt Creating an organism absolutley prove Creationism as a possibility?

I mean wouldnt it be egotistical to think that only WE could create a synthetic organism?
Just as Egotistical as thinking we are the only species that lies in the universe?

So my thoguhts are that as soon as we create a synthetic organism... we then at that point prove that creationism is possible... considernig we may not be the smartest entity in the universe.. that a greater mind may be able to create greater organisms or even further, greater synthetic existences or realities. we work with what is within the fabric of our reality so therefore if we create an organism, it shows that things can be made...out of recycled parts of our existence, however if our fabric of reality is far more greater ( something unimagineable because we can only base our thoughts off what is alraedy existing currently) then we would have further boundaries and could work with more material possibly creating an entire reality.
Anyways with this line of thinking could it not be possible that if we create something that we prove creationism is a possibility?

Who made who, who made you?
Who made who, ain't nobody told you?

Seriously, who made the first organism that made the second?

...maybe, but it wouldn't contradict the mountains of evidence we have in favor of evolution and the significant evidence we have in favor of abiogenesis.

I don't think anybody thinks we're the only species in the universe. Most people are aware of dogs, fish, viruses, etc.

And there's no sign that humanity or any other species on Earth is synthetic in origin. The possibility of synthetic life doesn't lead to the conclusion that we are synthetic ourselves.



So my thoguhts are that as soon as we create a synthetic organism... we then at that point prove that creationism is possible...


Of course it's possible, but that doesn't mean that it's supported by any evidence.

It even creates regress. Who created the individuals that created us? Who created them? And so on ad infinitum.



considernig we may not be the smartest entity in the universe..


As of right now we have no evidence of entities smarter than ourselves nor do we have any evidence of entities other than ourselves outside of our solar system. Sure, it's possible. It's actually probable that we aren't alone in the universe. But the probability of intelligence arising isn't necessarily all that high.



that a greater mind may be able to create greater organisms or even further, greater synthetic existences or realities.


...the possibility of synthetic life (biology) doesn't lead the the possibility of synthetic reality (physics).



we work with what is within the fabric of our reality so therefore if we create an organism, it shows that things can be made...out of recycled parts of our existence, however if our fabric of reality is far more greater ( something unimagineable because we can only base our thoughts off what is alraedy existing currently) then we would have further boundaries and could work with more material possibly creating an entire reality.


Creating an entire reality would be...well, sort of useless. Imagine the energy requirements...



Anyways with this line of thinking could it not be possible that if we create something that we prove creationism is a possibility?


It's always a possibility. It's not proven, there's no reason behind it, and it automatically falls into logical traps...but it's still a possibility.

Us creating our own life doesn't add any weight to its claims.

Do you mean 'would it prove that living things can be created from non-living matter by an external, intelligent agency?' Yes, it would.

Or do you mean 'would it prove that the Bible creation story is possibly true?' No, it wouldn't. That's because the Bible creation story is a parade of scientific howlers that could never possibly have happened, even with an all-powerful God at the controls. It's just too stupid.
