From your links.



Abiogenesis (Greek a-bio-genesis, "non biological origins") is, in its most general sense, the generation of life from non-living matter. Today the term is primarily used to refer to theories about the chemical origin of life, such as from a primordial soup. Earlier notions of abiogenesis, now more commonly known as spontaneous generation, held that living organisms are generated by decaying organic substances, e.g. that mice spontaneously appear in stored grain or maggots spontaneously appear in meat. (That idea, which has long been known to be incorrect, will be called "Aristotelian abiogenesis" in this article.)
Had to laugh on that one!



The term abiogenesis refers to the process by which the first living entities appeared on a lifeless Earth. It means simply getting life from non-life.

The notion that God (or any supernatural influence) intervenes in evolution or chemical interactions is not falsifiable by science, but it could be rendered irrelevant by a scientific demonstration that natural chemical processes are sufficient to explain the origins of life. The philosophical notion of vitalism posits that living organisms are imbued with a living essence or spirit which non-living things do not possess. However, no experiment has shown that living organisms are chemically different from non-living matter, or require anything more than basic chemical elements and their interactions in order to breathe, metabolize food, and reproduce.
Also from there.


Thus, around 1620, the physician and early chemist Jan Baptista van Helmont published this recipe for making mice:

"for if you press a piece of underwear soiled with sweat together with some wheat in an open mouth jar, after about 21 days the odor changes and the ferment coming out of the underwear and penetrating through the husks of the wheat, changes the wheat into mice. But what is more remarkable is that mice of both sexes emerge (from the wheat) and these mice successfully reproduce with mice born naturally from parents? But what is even more remarkable is that the mice which came out were not small mice? but fully grown."
rolleyes.gif NO COMMENT!

Oh if you are refering to the Miller-Urey experiment, i would hardly consider that as evidence for abiogenesis. Amino acids with 50-50 chirality were formed.

Abiogenesis is the field of science dedicated to studying how life might have arisen for the first time on the primordial young Earth. Despite the enormous progress that has been made since the Miller-Urey experiment, abiogenesis is under constant attack from creationists, who continually claim that the origin of life by random natural processes is so unlikely as to be, for all practical purposes, impossible. Following are some articles that challenge this claim and demonstrate the fundamental misconception at the core of the creationists' arguments.

"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy,
education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary.
Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear
of punishment and hope of reward after death."
