Wow, Rich.

I'll be the first to admit that about 80% of the article flies right over my head and my ability to comprehend.

It seems to me though that it is an important issue to address in the scientific community. Some might point to the idea that the lack of an agreed upon Origin of Life Theory is a God of the Gaps argument. However, if there's a positive way to state it in terms of what is known fitting better with the creationist account that's another matter.

Some of this seems to hit the areas that moved Antony Flew from Atheism to Deism.

Thanks for the continued work you're doing. I'm glad there are people like you who are doing more than just philosophying about things and getting down into the nuts and bolts.
