1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Scientific Method - Set procedures / steps to investigating a thought / observation Spontaneous Generation - Living things came about by non-living things 2. Relevant equations Define the importance of the scientific method with respect to the theory of spontaneous generation. 3. The attempt at a solution I'm thinking: The scientific method doesn't really take anything as "set in stone" even after something has become a theory it can be later disproved? So although many believed Spontaneous Generation, as the years went by it was disproved. And that's the importance of the scientific method with respect to the theory of spontaneous generation it allows for everything and anything to be tested. Is that it?
