I often answer evolution questions on, and one common answer left by creationists on such questions is that the Urey-Miller experiment is invalid because we really don't know the exact composition of the early atmosphere. However, they miss (or ignore) the point that the experiment showed how organic materials required for life to form can come about naturally.
That's one of my favorites too:

T: Life can't come from nothing
A: But, look at Urey-Miller 1952
T: Oh, well, they might be wrong about the atmosphere
A: Yes, but they still got life from nothing, so wrong or right about the atmosphere, they proved life from nothing.
T: Well, they might be wrong about the atmosphere...

And they instantly devolve into their circular defense because that's all they know. "Circle the rationality wagons, we're about to be attacked by reality!"
They always bring up Urey-Miller.... How about the new experiments, which are much better.
