We only have one environment to study.  I believe current research
shows a small handful of hundreds of millions of years between the end
of the planet's bombardment/formation, and the first cells.  If a
process that takes 200,000,000 years can be called "springs out", then
the answer is "so far, yes."

What is the agency that causes tornadoes, or hurricanes?  The same one
applies in this case.  One ought not be surprised by organization
emerging in an energy flow, in this case of light & heat from the sun
warming one side of the earth, and the earth dumping that heat back
into space on its side opposite the sun.
