If scientists cannot create a living cell, then how come the first living cell has been created by chance?

Scientists have not created a solar systems or galaxies either but there are countless solar systems and billions of galaxies in the universe. Scientists have not created gold or copper using hydrogen but stars can do that on their own. Scientists have conducted experiments that simulated early earth conditions. These experiments have yielded many organic chemicals found inside living cells, such as amino acids, fatty acids and carbohydrates. It shows that there is no need for a designer or creator because under natural conditions that existed on earth 4.5 billion years ago, many of the materials found inside cells were abundant naturally. All that was needed was some way some of these chemicals to evolve into the first cells. Life is perhaps as natural as galaxies and solar systems. Where conditions are suitable, it will arise on its own.

The first clause in your sentence has nothing to do with the second.

You’re assuming that there’s a difference between something Alive and not alive. Life is just a complex chemical reaction.

Good point! Anytime scientists are unable to perform some particular task, that is definitive evidence for the existence of God.
I am a scientist, and I am unable to find any worthwhile content in your question. Therefore, I have proved the existence of God.

Nobody, at least no scientists believe that the first cell was created by chance - what the hell are you talking about????

The fact something exists does not mean we know how to create it. We can't make snake venom either. Billions of years of nature and evolution and the effects of billions of random events have created things we are (as yet) unable to duplicate. If someone wishes to claim there is something other than nature that caused life, all they have to do is produce objective evidence of it.

If scientists had a lab the size of the entire earth and several billion years to work on it, they'd have no trouble making it happen.

This is nothing to do with Science. Stupid religion-based questions go in the section on Spirituality.

That's a good question. The simple answer is that we don't know. There are various theories but nothing has been proven. Sometimes the best answer to a question is "we don't know". Some people prefer to make up creative answers and while that can be fun it doesn't help solve the question.
