The definition you guys are giving for abiogenesis also fits spontaneous generation, and didn't "you guys" give some "Creationist" a verbal pummeling a week or so ago for confusing the two?

I seem to recall that "spontaneous generation" was the term used for the position that organisms regularly arose from non-living matter - maggots arising from rotting meat, etc. The pummelling was for the person claiming that Pasteur's disproving of spontaneous generation applied to abiogenesis, too.

And wasn't it you that was so adamant that scientific terms be taken in the context in which they were coined?
