'My holy book' also happens to be the historical account of the creation, fall of man, the incarnation of God's Son, and the redemption of mankind by Him. Like it or not, the symbol of the crucified One is on every single cell in your body.
Other than the fact that your holy book is a collection of bronze age mythology and not science. This is a science topic, no matter what, your book is irrelevant to the topic at hand.

It's been twice I watched that video, and it sure is interesting because it is clear for all the abiogenesis n00bs out there including myself.
The question I'm always asking myself though is this one: Why don't we found any of those proto-cells like that in our oceans ? (or lakes, etc. etc.) I mean, They probably have the same content of amino acids, nucleotides, etc. as the primitive soup. Why isn't this happening all the time ?
If I put all the required ingredients in a water bucket here in my room, and wait, will simple thermodynamics act as they do in the video ? Why, or why not ?

It's quite possible that it does happen, but you have to remember that these locations are already teaming with unicellular life, and anything and everything is regarded as food! The one thing that abiogenesis had going for it was the complete lack of active predators
Now, I'm no chemist, but it is also entirely possible that the environmental conditions that were favourable for the development of the lipid vesicles (pH, minerals, organic content, gas concentrations, etc) are not now generally observed - owing to both the vastly different atmospheric conditions, and the post-abiogenetic abundance of life.
Sure. Look very closely at your hand. Hmm... okay, use a microscope. See those tiny, tiny little dots dividing by themselves. Them's bacteria.
Bacteria don't have chromatin (although, occasionally, you can find references to bacterial chromatin, this is not correct usage since the DNA assemblages of bacteria - and some Archaea - are fundamentally different from the chromatin of Eukarya, in particular they have no histones).
I have to admit I'm rather dubious about the example given, as far as I am aware (and according to my coursebooks) only two tailed lipids will form liposomes, one tailed lipids (such as the fatty acids shown) form simpler structures called micelles which have extremely limited internal space. Worse, even if sufficient two tailed lipids formed to create a liposome these structures are disrupted by the presence of one tailed lipids so they'd not last long unless protected somehow.
I'm assuming the actual science behind the cute video covers this objection, do you have any references from a more scientific source?
Check here for more layman videos on Szostak's work on lipids, micelles, and vesicles. You're probably more informed in this area than I to comment. I keep meaning to look at the original pubs but time is scarce...
So does changing the angle or viewing the same object from a different perspective change the shape of the object? No. Then does fact that Laminin is flexible as to connects one cell to another change the fact that its basic design is a cross? No.
The truth is that Laminin holds every single living cell in the world together and the fact that an ancient text reveals that the crucified One 'holds all thing together' and that He does so by the 'word of His power' verily shouts an eternal truth that cannot be ignored...not by honest people.
