Our inability to design a self-replicating molecule is highly relevant, showing us we're talking about a highly complex construct - that is not easily achievable by putting some environments one after the other. You need some very, very specific environments - so subtle, we didn't figure out which despite a lot of searching (not blindly, but guided by science).
So in a lab we haven't been able to re-create a self-replicating molecule. Could that mean our hypothesis is in error. Science does not stand still.
