Ray, List,

The 'spontaneous creation' theories go back a long way.

IMO, they are a rebellion against the very powerful churches,
and the clergy, who claimed exclusive knowledge of the Creator.

It's not so surprising, considering the state of Religion back
then. The quandary for 'science' is, having rejected 'creation',
it has only 'random chance' left as an alternative.

The modern theory of evolution depends on random mutations, yet
mutations are seldom beneficial to an organism, and, again,
there's no way to prove or disprove the theory. The subject of
probability was well covered in previous posts. It's not
_impossible_ for anything to happen, it's only impossible based
on current understanding.

Personally, I tend to lean away from the 'random chance'
theories, since I don't believe the extraordinarily complex
machinery of a single cell could arise spontaneously. The role
of energy is paramount in living systems, and there has been
little research in this area. Energy is the key to understanding
how living systems arise. Creation is merely a property of the
Universe, any 'intelligence' we see there is our own
imagination. No God required.
