12. Correct, I should have said heat and radiation *on a planetary surface/ocean* is the best candidate.

And of course, Urey's experiment added electric discharges (lightning) as well.

Darwin's "warm little pond" still makes infinitely more sense than expecting molecules to find each other in near-vacuum, where the concentrations may be smaller by factors exceeding 10^20.
