Natural Selection must be God!

In an incredible display of irrational thinking, scientists studying the availability of amino acids as life was forming concluded this:
“We found that chance alone would be extremely unlikely to pick a set of amino acids that outperforms life’s choice, . . . Here we found a very simple test that begins to show us that life knew exactly what it was doing. This is consistent with the idea that there was natural selection going on.”
This type of thinking, wherein “life” is linked to “natural selection” although NS is impossible without life first existing, only demonstrates the degree to which modern scientists have effectively become ‘brainwashed’. It is political correctness come to science.
What an incredible quote: “Life knew exactly what is was doing.” So, was it some lipid membrane that “knew”; or was it some RNA molecules that “knew”? It is almost laughable that this is supposed to pass itself off as critical thinking.
And, in another quote showing the enormous hurdles that Origin of Life scientists face—although they’re free to conclude that life was created—a scientist from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, not involved in the study, added this:
Although a number of experiments have shown that unnatural amino acids can be incorporated into the genetic alphabet of organisms, it may never be possible to experimentally simulate sufficient evolutionary time periods to truly compare alternate amino acid alphabets.”
This is a tacit admission that the improbability of selecting required amino acids at random is next to impossible. Somehow none of this affects their ‘scientific way’ of looking at things. IOW, “We can’t believe in the supernatural, so we’ll believe in the impossible instead.” Heaven help us.
Their work was published in the journal Astrobiology.
