And for you who seem to get bogged down concerning dates claiming anything that is older than them is outdated and since then we have made great advancements in this and that ....well you are wrong .
After all , origin of species ....1859 . Now that is well and truly outdated and has been shown to be in total error in the light of modern testable , repeatable , experimental and observable science .
Professor Klaus Dose, president, Institute of Biochemistry, University of Johannes Gutenberg :
More than 30 years of experimentation on the origin of life in the fields of chemical and molecular evolution have led to a better perception of the immensity of the problem of the origin of life on earth rather than to its solution. At present all discussions on principal theories and experiments in the field either end in stalemate or in a confession of ignorance.

This is by far the weakest strut of the chassis of modern biology."

Geochemist Jeffrey Bada :
Today, as we leave the twentieth century, we still face the biggest unsolved problem that we had when we entered the twentieth century: How did life originate on Earth?
