in biology we have to learn about evolution, spontaneous (spelling?) generation, ect. While we were talking about spontaneous generation we were told that people stopped believing in this several years ago because it was proven that life can not form its self. So, I just want to know how evolution can be true if life cant form its self.

They created amino acids in labs, which are the building blocks of life, but that its not enough to actually create life. There are a bunch of theories that life created itself, but I dont believe none. Instead, I believe that earth was colonized by different life forms billions of years ago, which gave birth to life as we know it. Why I think so? Because it was proven that life was possible on mars millions of years ago, since they discovered what once were lakes and rivers. Many think that evolution is nothing but mistakes in dna which made a creature to change features.

Anyway, just my 200 cents.

how were we able to prove that life was able to live on mars millions of years ago??? We havnt even sent people there. Also for a while spontaneous generation was proven, but now it isnt

When you talk about the spontaneous generation that people believed in in the 18th and 19th century, that is referring to very complex organisms. They believed that rain caused worms and frogs and such to just appear.

For 'life' to exist, all you really need are some self-replicating molecules, which still exist today.

For life as we know it to exist, all you need is for those self-replicating molecules to be enclosed on a cell wall (research onto how this could have happend is being conducted, the current leading candidate is a special type of clay that would have been abundant on the earth a long time ago), and a way for those self-replicating molecules to have a way to keep their attributes when the replicate. We donb't know exactly how it happened, but it did.

self replicating is different than something forming its self

:Puzzled: No... Its the same... If a molecule self-replicates, it will form another molecule, which could be self-replicating...

Simple. They used satelites to take images, and found out shapes in rocks, and mountains that were made by water, therefore they found out that long time ago mars had water. Now wheres water, theres life. They also found a rock that was carved like a human head by ???. I cant tell you by who, but winds and water dont really do that.

Erm, one question... how did the marshian alien species that aparently colonized us come about? Surely they must have somehow come about.
