This was a ground-breaking idea for its time, and it was written by a man of outstanding scientific credentials. Francis Crick, though, pooh-poohs the ideas of UFOs and ancient astronauts, and he later joined the debunking organization CSICOP. This is strange given the theory he presents (at times well): that an advanced extraterrestrial society had deliberately seeded Earth with life by sending elemental life forms on a rocket ship over a vast distance. He was of the old school that believed distances between Earth and other inhabitable worlds is too vast for any advanced life forms to travel personally, and this antiquates part of his theory, but his observations about DNA and other aspects of life on Earth are thought-provoking.

This book is extremely interesting. However, it is somewhat outdated.. The Big Bang Theory is one example.
If anyone knows of a more up to date book on the same theme, I would appreciate it.

You really have to admire any academic who steps out beyond the boundaries of what is expected, although, he had a little help by taking LSD every week which what gave him some of the original insights for the DNA molecule. A good read, although there are many books that are more updated with information on this subject. Personally, I think 'who we are' has a lot more to do with something else, but the subject of directed panspermia could explain how we arrived here in the first place. But it really appears like we have had some upgrades along the way, which I cover in my book To Believe Or Not To Believe: The Social and Neurological Consequences of Belief Systems

He comes up with great metaphors for complex and abstract thoughts that make them simple and fun to read. This book will blow your mind and make you think. I am not totally sold on this book's wisdom, but it sure beats the religious takes on how we got here. "And god said, 'Let there be Crick!'"

Is one of several Crick books directed at the confluence of science and non-science. I've noticed that many great scientists have tried to resolve certain issues but they are driven by religious definitions of God and God's processes.
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.
