Do you dispute that amino acids can be created in the lab?
Do you dispute that amino acids have been found on meteorites?
Do you dispute that proteins have been created from amino acids in the lab?
Again, making it in a lab doesn't really convince me of anything. Amino acids are a very far piece away from making life.
I really don't know what would be convincing. Both ID and Abiogenesis are wildly remote possibilities, with firm believers on both sides of the debate. I still have no problem deciding on what to have for lunch without solving that little dilemma on a daily basis.
I can comfortably live in the present without picking sides on that one.
