Topic :- Life Is Not Created from Chemicals or Matter : Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa

Exactly what is life? A materialist or a person who believes in the existence of only one energy: matter, hopes to one day be able to create life in a laboratory through the combination of a variety of chemicals. However to be able to create life, you have to first be able to define what it is you want to create.

Webster's New World Dictionary defines life as follows: "...That property of plants and animals which makes it possible for them to take in food, get energy from it, grow, adapt themselves to their surroundings, and reproduce their own kind: it is the quality that distinguishes a living animal or plant from inorganic matter or a dead organism."

However, to describe the difference between the way matter behaves when under the influence of life and when it's by itself is not to define life.

So the first problem that the materialist has in his attempt to explain the creation of life from chemicals is that he doesn't know what life is. He is not able to define life, And this is the point which unfortunately very few people raise. There's a lot of discussion about the mathematical improbabilities of life being created from the chance combination of chemicals.

Those who are not in agreement with the materialists usually base their arguments on this point: that mathematically it's extremely improbable that life could be created from matter. For example, a growing number of scientists of various backgrounds have challenged the existence of the "primordial soup" and many geologists have concluded that it never even existed because they have found no evidence for it.

Even if one did accept the existence of the hypothetical primordial soup, it is highly improbable that the elements present in that soup would randomly combine together to form a complex arrangement of molecules similar or identical to the molecular pattern found in the body of even a simple one-celled organism,

But our point is very different. Our point is that there's absolutely no evidence, number one, that the material scientists even know what life is, what to speak of their being able to claim that it's been created by matter in the past or that they will create it in their laboratories in the future.
