Abiogenesis is the "now discredited theory that living organisms can arise spontaneously from inanimate matter". [1] According to this "theory," a process exists through which living organisms developed from nonliving matter. Evolutionists suggest that an event of Abiogenesis was the "origin of life". No such process, by which organisms, even incredibly simple ones, can spontaneously be created from non-living matter is currently known or observed.

Historical Meanings

Abiogenesis may also refer to spontaneous generation, an archaic theory that stated that life could appear spontaneously under particular conditions. For example, pieces of cheese and bread wrapped in rags and left in dark areas were thought to produce mice, because after several weeks, mice appeared in the food. The same reasoning was applied to the appearance of maggots on decaying meat. [2]. This theory was finally put to rest by experiments by Louis Pasteur.

Biblical Origin of Life

The most famous example of abiogenesis begins in Genesis 1:20, when God created life:

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. Genesis 1:20 (KJV)
