What Is Life?


What Is Life?

No matter how much scientists discover about the physical systems in organisms and their possible origin, they still have no clue about the infinitely more difficult question of where life came from. If you could make a baby from scratch, with all its physical parts in place, you still would not have a living human.

Inorganic Matter to Unicellular Life-Forms

Although scientists already knew that bacteria, as with all life, are exceedingly complex, this discovery adds to our awareness of just how complex many of the supposed “simplest” life-forms actually are.

Life and Conception

Once upon a time, conception was synonymous with fertilization; in the new millennium, conception became synonymous with implantation, which typically occurs six to nine days later. Stedman’s semantic alteration, like an earlier change by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, reflected not medical science but sociological and political correctness.
