Spontaneous Generation

Spontaneous generation is the theory that life can spontaneously form from nonliving material. For example, it was once thought that meat, if left out in the open, would spontaneously form maggots or that cheese and rags, if left alone long enough, would produce mice. This theory has been discredited.
