Theories about the origin of life come and go like fashion trends. India’s Vedic tradition, however, has always remained consistent on this point; “life” is the natural condition of everything; there has always been and always will be life, manifesting in infinite varieties. A critical look at widely-believed assumptions and theories held by modern scientists about the origin of life. For people who have come to accept every pronouncement of modern scientists as tested and proven truth, this book will be an eye-opener.Life Comes From Life is an impromptu but brilliant critique of some of the dominant policies, theories and presuppositions of modern science and scientists by one of the greatest philosophers and scholars of the twentieth century, His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Srila Prabhupada’s vivid analysis uncovers the hidden and blatantly unfounded assumptions that underlie currently fashionable doctrines about the origins and purpose of life. This book is based on taped morning-walk conversations between Srila Prabhupada and his disciple Thoudam D. Singh, Ph.D., an organic chemist.
Life Comes From Life is a collection of conversations between Srila Prabhupada and his disciple Thoudam D. Singh, Ph.D., an organic chemist, in Los Angeles during the mid-1970’s.
Srila Prabhupada encouraged his students to use logic, reason, and scientific methods to discredit atheistic, materialistic propaganda, such as the notion that life comes from nothing. Why should we believe something can come from nothing, when all around us, every day, we see life coming from other life?
