No. As I have said they are related but different.<quoted text>
Hey Sub I see a lot of arguing about evolution and abiogenesis being different. As by definition they are but doesn't both
abiogenesis and evolution have in their theory that all life came from a last universal ancestor that lived 3.5 to 3.8 billion years ago? Don't they support each other for one to be the other had to be as well?
Evolution is a theory. That means it has gone through the gamut and found to be correct in all tests to date.
Abiogenesis is still in the hypothetical mode. It is still being formulated. It has not been fully tested yet.
Abiogenesis is a question of how the universal ancestor came about. We still are not sure enough to have a theory of it. There could be several different paths to life.
Evolution describes what happened once the universal ancestor was in existence.
They have a crossing point at the universal ancestor. Some of abiogenesis's processes may use driving mechanisms very similar to evolution.
If and when the problem of abiogenesis is answered it may become part of the theory of evolution. But as of now it is a slightly different, but related topic.
