What does spontaneous generation mean exactly?

Some will disagree, but I'll go with Gould and Huxley on that. Alleged spontaneous generation is the alleged genesis of evolution or biogenesis, i.e. bio-genesis, i.e. beginning of life spontaneously/randomly.


Incorrect.

And neither quote you provide from Gould or Huxley indicates that this is their definition of spontaneous generation.

"Spontaneous generation" has a very specific meaning in biology and was (at least as far as the story goes) disproven by Pasteur.

Abiogenesis is not "spontaneous generation."

Re: Non Living Don't Evolve.
buzsaw responds to me:

My point in all this was to refute the argument that spontaneous generation was not included in the process of evolution.

Why would it since spontaneous generation has been disproven? And yet, we still have evolution. Why would you try to connect a solidly substantiated theory with a piece of unproven junk?

Spontaneous generation is not included in the process of evolution.

Nor is abiogenesis.

Are you saying god is incapable of creating life that evolves?

I've asked you that question numerous times. You have yet to give an answer. It is not rhetorical. I really want to hear your answer:

Are you saying god is incapable of creating life that evolves?
