It is a dilemma because biogenesis states that all living things come from other living things and for this theory to be correct the first living organism would have had to spontaneous generate from another living organism. Since it was the origin of life there was nothing fore the first organism to generate from.

The theory that replaced the theory of spontaneous generation is the theory of biogenesis. Biogenesis is the production of new living organisms or organelles.

Louis pasteur was the one to support th theory of biogenesis.

Biogenesis and cell theory support each other because for another living thing to be created, (biogenesis law) the cells must divide and duplicate (Cell theory). So they both support each other

Do you mean abiogenesis? Biogenesis is just cell theory and cells come from cells. Pasteur did not disprove biogenesis or abiogenesis. He disproved spontaneous generation which is a very different thing.

The theory of biogenesis is simply the idea that life is born from other life, as opposed to the theory of abiogensis, which states that life came about from non-life through natural processes.

The biogenesis theory states that all living things can only be produced by living things and have no other way of coming into existence. This is the opposite from what is stated in the spontaneous theory.

Spontaneous generation or Equivocal generation is an obsolete theory regarding the origin of life from inanimate matter

The Law of Biogenesis, attributed to Louis Pasteur, states that life arises from pre-existing life, not from nonliving material.

Life comes from mother obviously. lol

The theory of biogenesis states that living cells arise from preexisting living cells. In the theory of germ disease, it was found that diseases are caused by microorganisms such as bacteria. The correlation is that microorganisms are able to thrive off living cells.

Yes. Obviously the "Big Bang Theory" is the dominant theory at present. There are problems with it, but it seems the best we have.

This theory is called biogenesis. It was formulated by Louis Pasteur.

Louis Pasteur is the name of the French chemist who supplied proof for the theory of biogenesis. The theory in question observes that life comes from life by way of reproduction. Experiments by the French-born chemist and microbiologist in question (December 27, 1822 - September 28, 1895) still serve as refutation of the theory of spontaneous generation.

Spallanzani wanted to could meat in a closed container, to avoid contamination. The air however in the container could have shattered, so he evacuated the container after sealing it shut. The meat did not cloud with bacterial growth supporting the biogenesis theory.
