If you read the full news story, you'll see thay did nothing of the sort. They just (allegedly) took an existing cell, removed the DNA, and put some new DNA into it which they had altered somehow.
This headline of ‚Äúlife created in the lab‚ÄĚ is just to sell newspapers and is a lie. If they are successful in creating life from scratch in the laboratory someday, that only proves that it takes intelligence to create life. It would be evidence that creationism is true, not evolution, which is the creation of life in the absence of intelligence.
