Response Article
This article (Amino acids aren't generated from just CO2, nitrogen, and water (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.


Claim CB035.3:

When the Miller-Urey experiment is run with an atmosphere consisting only of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor, no amino acids are produced. Source:

CreationWiki response:

(Talk.Origins quotes in blue)

1. The claim is false. Such an atmosphere does give rise to amino acids (Schlesinger and Miller 1983).

Talk Origins cited source does not show this. None of the experiments used an atmosphere consisting only of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor. The experiments that produced amino acids all had either free hydrogen or methane.
