Understanding Abiogenesis

The abiogenesis theory, also known as spontaneous generation, is one of the most widely accepted theories for the origin of life on Earth. This theory proposes that life emerged from non-living matter through a series of natural chemical reactions. The basic idea of abiogenesis is that the building blocks of life, such as amino acids and nucleotides, could have been formed on the early Earth through natural processes, and then came together to form more complex molecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids, which eventually gave rise to living cells.
