Scientists claim artificial life possible within the next 10 years

A group of scientists predict that artificial life is possible within the next ten years. The scientist admit that they are not smart enough to make complex organisms, but they can make a simple nucleotide, which should be capable of Darwinian evolution, and from then on, that could go on and evolve to a lot more complex organisms. The question is, should we play this dangerous game, even if we can?
