WikiProject Evolutionary biology (Rated NA-class)
WikiProject iconThis template is part of WikiProject Evolutionary biology, an attempt at building a useful set of articles on evolutionary biology and its associated subfields such as population genetics, quantitative genetics, molecular evolution, phylogenetics, and evolutionary developmental biology. It is distinct from the WikiProject Tree of Life in that it attempts to cover patterns, process and theory rather than systematics and taxonomy. If you would like to participate, there are some suggestions on this page (see also Wikipedia:Contributing FAQ for more information) or visit WikiProject Evolutionary biology

Miller-Urey experiment[edit]

Somehow it is not working for this article. I fixed redirect and yet, it doesn't work. Maybe the Miller-Urey article needs to be "refreshed" or updated in order for the template to work... I'll check back here a little later to see what is going on. -- Loukinho (talk) 18:31, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

All good. It works now. -- Loukinho (talk) 18:36, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Hydrothermal vents and the alkaline-spring hypothesis[edit]

Needs to be added. Viriditas (talk) 11:44, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

That is mentioned in the Abiogenesis article, which is included in this template. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 16:20, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Spontaneous generation[edit]

I noticed the recent addition and deletion; although Spontaneous generation was proven wrong, it was the leading explanation of the origin of life for a very long time. I think it does have a place in this template if only for historical reasons. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 16:17, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

But it wasn't seen as 'the origin of life' at all. It was rather that some forms of life (like sponges) were so low that they continuously emerged from non-living matter, to which they were close. There was no concept of change (let alone the modern kind of evolution): species were static. There was no suggestion in that view of "life .. having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one" and that hence a single "origin" of that one form was even in question. So putting spontaneous generation into the template is a category error, it's just completely askew from being "a hypothesis" for a mechanism—it was explaining something different entirely. Hope this helps. Chiswick Chap (talk)
I agree. It was more an explanation of [inanimate] reproduction than the origin of all life. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 18:26, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
