  • 7. Spontaneous generation (abiogenesis): a theory which explains that living organisms can be spontaneously created from non-living matter Not an unreasonable explanation for societies which didn’t have the right technology to look at what living things are made of.
  • 8. The right technology •Invented in Holland in 1590 •First cell seen/drawn by Robert Hooke in mid 1600s.
  • 9. Looked at cork bark (made of dead cells). The small, empty spaces that he saw reminded him of a small room. He called them “cells”.
  • 10. The first living cells were seen by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek.
  • 11. The discovery of cells led to the end of spontaneous generation as a viable theory.
