I wonder whether "from" can be removed from "evolution of life follow from the fundamental laws" and the meaning still keeps intact?


----------------
Popular hypotheses credit a primordial soup, a bolt of lightning and a colossal stroke of luck. But if a provocative new theory is correct, luck may have little to do with it. Instead, according to the physicist proposing the idea, the origin and subsequent evolution of life follow from the fundamental laws of nature and “should be as unsurprising as rocks rolling downhill.”

I think that from there gives it the meaning of result from, so there would be a slight change in meaning.

Re: volution of life follow from the fundamental laws

The article is about the application of the laws of physics to the evolution of life, so I think it is meant as a consequence.
