Artificial life is only months away?
Artificial life will be created within four months, a controversial scientist has predicted. Craig Venter, who led a private project to sequence the human genome, told The Times that his team had cleared a critical hurdle to creating man-made organisms in a laboratory.

“Assuming we don’t make any errors, I think it should work and we should have the first synthetic species by the end of the year,” he said.

Dr Venter, who has been chasing his goal for a decade, is already working on projects to use synthetic biology to create bacteria that transform coal into cleaner natural gas, and algae that soak up carbon dioxide and turn it into hydrocarbon fuels. Other potential applications include new ways of manufacturing medicines and vaccines. ...

They still have to use an existing cell (or in this case, bacterium) as a foundry in order to develope their "artificial" organism.

I'd like to see them try to actually synthesize the bacterium itself using inanimate materials. Now THAT would be truely awsome.

Reminds me of that Christian joke in which the punchline involves God saying to man (in his attempt to create life): "Get your own dirt!"

Yet another man-made creation, that's all "synthetic life" is. The only difference between synthetic life and robots is that they are made with different materials (oh, and robots are more advanced than the tiny things they'll create).
