I do not know if materialistic abiogenesis is possible. There are many scientists dedicated to the problem, applying theory, observations, measurements, and empirical experimentation. Hypothesis concerning abiogenesis absolutely are in principle and practice subject to empirical verification and testing by the scientific method. Why would you suggest otherwise?
That you are asking this is a demonstration that you have not done your own homework, and initiated the thread with no real idea of the relevant extensive scientific literature before presumptuously laying a charge of hypocrisy. Before you come back with - “those do not prove that biogenesis can occur” - of course a natural path to life has not yet been demonstrated in the lab. This is a big problem with a lot of pieces to be put together, and advances would be expected to be incremental. What, in your opinion, is wrong with working on it? Some think that significant scientific progress has been made, so maybe you should consider tempering your loaded question.
