Abiogenesis is the spontaneous formation of life from non-life.  It is also known as autogenesis and is similar to spontaneous generation, the idea that complex organisms spontaneously formed from non-living material.  Abiogenesis has no scientific support, has not been observed in the laboratory, and there is no known mechanism by which life can form from non-life with its incredibly complex information structures in place.
