Srila Prabhupada: Then what is his explanation for how the process of evolution began?
Karandhara: Modern proponents of Darwinism say that the first living organism was created chemically.
Srila Prabhupada: And I say to them, "If life originated from chemicals, and if your science is so advanced, then why can't you create life biochemically in your laboratories?"
Srila Prabhupada: Scientists have helped to minimize the duration of life! Formerly men lived one hundred years; now they seldom live more than sixty or seventy years. And the scientists have discovered atomic energy; now they can kill millions of men. So they have helped only in dying. They have not helped in living, and still they dare to declare that they will create.
