LIFE does not come from NON-LIFE.
However, The QUINTESSENCE of ALL THAT IS, life or non-life, is ONE.
So far as GOD creating LIFE; well, it is a simplistic idea of simple people from The East as well as The West. That does not mean their intentions are not good. It only means their CONCEPTION of THE DIVINE does not match THE TRUTH or REALITY AS IS.
From a YOGI or a FREE MYSTIC point of view, which relies on FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE; both the common lot from scientific community as also from the religious, make the same mistake. Both have AN IDEA about REALITY, not THE SELF-EXPERIENCE of The ULITMATE REALITY.
So, what is The TRUTH of ALPHA and OMEGA?
It is this: WHAT-SO-EVER IS, "this" or "that", is made of ONE, WHOLE, ALLNESS, IMMANANENT "STUFF", which, a normal being calls SPIRIT in REVERENCE. The Scientists and Science do not find, are unable to discover "IT". Not because they are not smart enough, but because they are not sufficiently attuned to THAT WHICH IS.
This - "WHICH IS"- does not OPEN UP to IRREVERENCE, or, to COLD HEARTS.
This is where a simple GOD-FEARING, not necessarily GOD-KNOWING, simple person scores over CLINICAL SCIENTISTS. This is where YOGIS and FREE MYSTICS succeed. It is where the clever ones fail. It is where the simple ones win.
It is the realm of THE DIVINE.

How do we define “LIFE”?
Science has thus far discovered that “STUFF” of LIFE and NON-LIFE is same. Does that rule out GOD?
From a commonplace and a simplistic point of view, having found no essential difference in ATOMIC STRUCTURE between Life and Non-Life, scientists may as well claim there is nothing DIVINE or GODLY about “ALIVE” humanity and non-living beings. In other words, this LIFE is just a CHEMICAL/PHYSICAL ACTION-REACTION taking place, without THE DIVINE or GOD playing any role.
This may well be true. But it would be a superfluous truth.
There is more to GOD or DIVINITY than a normal human being and a scientist defines both. The Western Scientists, and, therefore, most Atheists, influenced by the prevalent LOWER MODERN SCIENCE, think there is nothing divine about life. Thus, they denounce GOD.
These scientists and intellectuals could not be more wrong.
The FREE MYSTICS and YOGIS of INDIA have since the very beginning been informing us that ALL IS ONE WHOLE ALLNESS. In fact, there are freely available ANCIENT INDIAN YOGIC TEXTS for us to gainfully learn a thing or two even now. Therein THE SEEKER asks THE GURU that if ALL IS ONE SELF ESSENCE, does that mean even “SHIT is GOD?”
Thus, science, especially of West, has found nothing new. Eons ago, Free Mystics and Yogis of India found THE ULTIMATE TRUTH. Science is yet not THERE, to re-define LIFE.
