No one has synthesized self-propagating RNA. No one.
Hmm, maybe you should inform Bio- Synthesis their RNA polymers don't exist.
Today, using improved synthetic and biochemical methods, DNA polymers, long and small double stranded DNA and RNA molecules, RNA polymers, small and large peptides and small proteins can now be routinely synthesized.
Or, perhaps you would like to custom order your RNA?

Not scientist created RNA, but RNA that evolved on it's own in an environment.
If you have to rely on an outside force to create it, then you continually prove intelligent design.
My argument hasn't changed.
