Well, one leads to the next. I wouldn't call that interconnected - it can only go in one direction. Most accurately, evolution is contingent upon abiogenesis. Evolution couldn't happen without some beginning of replication of molecules.<quoted text>
"Evolution doesn't speak to abiogenesis."
But evolution says that ALL life evolved from ONE single cell organism...
Evolution & abiogenesis are interconnected.
But once replication happens, abiogenesis is in the past.
