The supposed origination of living organisms from lifelessmatter; such genesis as does not involve the action of livingparents; spontaneous generation; -- called also abiogeny, and opposedto biogenesis.I shall call the . . . doctrine that living matter may be produced bynot living matter, the hypothesis of abiogenesis. Huxley, 1870.
(noun) [Spontaneous Generation]. People originally thought larvae randomly appeared on poop, and mold randomly grew. Or, more correctly, spontaneously generated. This is now known to be false, but is a theory still taught in school. Some teenagers like to use it as a sort-of-funny explanation.
Abiogenesis is a hypothesis which attempts to explain how life may have arose from non-living chemicals. Evolution is a scientific theory which explains how life evolved and the variation of species because of it. A person can hold evolution to be true but abiogenesis to be false.
Honest researchers do not accept abiogenesis as factual because, unlike evolution, it has never been observed and has no empirical evidence.
From a scientific perceptive, the actual origin of life remains a mystery still. The answer to the origins of life could very well be abiogenesis though and contrary to the views of atheist fanatics, this still wouldn't refute the existence of God.
All physicists agree with the idea that the universe is finely tune with order for life since all its values and properties are so deliberately aligned. Whilst abiogenesis by itself proposes the idea of life arriving godlessly, when combined with the fact of the fine tuning of the universe for life, we see that the origin of life all over the universe was deliberately planned amongst every other natural system - such as evolution - that we see at work.
An hypothesis which is evidenceless. It's fueled by faith and speculation and there is no evidence of life being able to arise/form by itself. Lab experiments only confirm that intelligence is needed for something even only a remotely bit complex to form further reinforcing the scientific law of Biogenesis (life from life).
