One simply used a different spark generator. The second injected steam onto the sparks.
In other words, they still required some kind of intelligent tweaking.
If you consider volcanoes intelligent, then yes.
From post #8: “All you need is a means of assembling these into proteins.”
That’s like saying, “ Here are some metal ores and crude oil. All you need is a means of assembling them into computer parts.”
I just love how scientists claim that sparks and lightning created life considering all the evidence of what lightning does to rocks, trees, and people these days.
Abiogenesis is the theory that under the proper conditions life can arise spontaneously from non-living molecules. One of the most widely cited studies used to support this conclusion is the famous MillerUrey experiment. Surveys of textbooks find that the MillerUrey study is the major (or only) research cited to prove abiogenesis. Although widely heralded for decades by the popular press as proving that life originated on the early earth entirely under natural conditions, we now realize the experiment actually provided compelling evidence for the opposite conclusion. It is now recognized that this set of experiments has done more to show that abiogenesis on Earth is not possible than to indicate how it could be possible. This paper reviews some of the many problems with this research, which attempted to demonstrate a feasible method of abiogenesis on the early earth.
