“It last happened about 3.6 billion years ago a tiny living cell emerged from the dust of the Earth. It replicated itself, and its progeny replicated themselves, and so on, with genetic twists and turns down through billions of generations. Today every living organism—every person, plant, animal and microbe—can trace its heritage back to that first cell.”
The reason I said “almost gotten it right about creation” is because they do admit that creation came from the “dust of the Earth”. Scripture teaches, “the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” [Genesis 2:7]
Where they miss it is that it was not just “a tiny living cell” that emerged all by itself, but entire fully developed mature creations by God.
It is no wonder that DNA is similar throughout humans and animals, for God was our Creator.
The fall of mankind came when they saw the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden, which it gave them the desire to make one wise and to become as gods knowing good and evil.
Not really much has changed today, for man is still plagued with three basic issues [1 John 2:16]:
1 - the lust of the flesh
2 - the lust of the eyes
3 - the pride of life
Man still wants to deny there is any God, but self.
The next step is the desire to produce a synthetic “species” so that science can say, “We are your god”.
“Scientists in the last couple of years have been trying to create novel forms of life from scratch. They've forged chemicals into synthetic DNA, the DNA into genes, genes into genomes, and built the molecular machinery of completely new organisms in the lab—organisms that are nothing like anything nature has produced.”
So forget God, forget Mother Nature, forget evolution, man says “I will create life! - Well, by using what I can find around the lab, because I haven’t figured out how God did it in the beginning yet.”
