Yes, but we are talking about the chances of it forming, with out a creator.

Proteins don't form by being created by a creator; they form by the condensation reaction that creates peptide bonds. (A peptide bond is the C-N bond between two amino acids. It's called a condensation reaction because water comes out, the opposite of hydrolysis.)
