Corrected a spelling error: replaced "lang" with "living."
It should be noted that anabiosis, the ''extremely'' simple chemical processes scientists propose as the origins of life, is ''not'' the same as spontaneous generation, the emergence of complex organisms from non-lang matter, such as maggots forming from rotting flesh or truffles from small rocks.

[[AC:NorseMythology]] * In NorseMythology, life began when the warm air of Muspelheim hit the cold ice of Niflheim, creating the giant Ymir and the cow Audhumla. Other giants grew from Ymir's sweat and Bori, the first of the gods, appeared from Audhumla's salt lick. Fun times. [[AC:ClassicalMythology]]

** [[Discworld/{{Thud}} The same book]] provides an example for the trolls, as well. According to the myth, the first troll sprung unbidden from the stone egg that Tak used to make the first Man and Dwarf. In the traditional, conservative version of the myth, the troll went unregarded and so wanders through the world without purpose; but in an alternate version, Tak was pleased with the stone's tenacity and gave the troll His blessing.

Pasteur apparently found life spawning from compost, but decided "only the Creator-God had ever exercised the power to convert the inanimate into the living" and suppressed his own work. ** Given that the author of that book strenuously defended the (proven wrong) theory that microorganisms were not agents of disease at all but mere "scavengers" that happened to be present in sick people, I would not give much credence to whatever he wrote in a book originally titled "Pasteur: Plagiarist, Imposter" ...
