If anyone knows of a more up to date book on the same theme, I would appreciate it.
IMO, Crick falls into the trap of having to prove things that are not provable. Very interesting ideas, but I think calling him an atheist, e.g., is not correct. He is simply trying to answer problems in light of a religious existence.
For example only, surely we die but where does the soul go and how? That assumes there is a soul and that it must travel, a given from religion.
As a scientist, I ask where is the soul in the body and I guess the mind. Where is the mind, and I guess in the DNA molecule and if that molecule can travel into another human it can live forever.
But where is the part of the DNA representing the mind/soul? Surely, personality is part of the mind/soul and we can see some of that in our offspring.
Fermi's question was; "If they came from another planet, where are they", and Szilard answers: "They are among us but they call themselves, Hungarians”.
They are us. Is that hard to believe?
In this book, Crick is waylaid by several ideas off the main subject of life origin and nature, delving into religion.
