Originally life came about through non life but Scientists are unable to achieve this in a laboratory . Why is this ? Is it the time factor ? I believe that it took one billion years for life to evolve here on Earth did it not ?


It seems that science has moved on somewhat, and scientists have created 'living' (self-replicating) artificial bacterial cells. They built the genome from physical materials and transplanted the engineered genome into an existing bacterial cell.
