I think eventually, science will explain origins of life creation, for here on earth.
They need to find life on other planets first. Even if its multicellular bacteria. Because a 1-celled organism becoming a 2 celled organism is considered by many to be part of the "great filter" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Filter#The_Great_Filter

..im not an atheist, I believe that god created the universe, or universes now. I was an atheist for a few years as well. Although, I always wondered for the people who were atheists, do they believe more in the theory that we live in a computer simulated universe than god creating it? What theory to they believe in about the universe, and us not finding any evidence of life anywhere else other than earth? And how life began here on earth?
Is it more that life on earth was just a fluke, we are living on an ordinary planet, in an ordinary solar system, with an ordinary middle aged sun like star, in the habital zone, and life here isnt special...because odds are theres life on millions of planets? Do you believe life is not special or ordinary and that life here was just an accident?
Maybe you're right. Maybe we're the ants on the side of a major highway, completely oblivious as to what is beside our own little habitat ant colony, our brains may never be able to comprehend the structure next to us and our technology may never be able to see the big picture before humanity goes extinct, such as multiple parallel bubble universes.
Computer simulation is interesting theory, I never put much thought into it tho, I dont think we live a simulated world or that we are simulated. Even if we found undisputed evidence of how life began on Earth, I think it will be very underwhelming. I think its probably just a random chance, it was one in a billion, but it happened over millions of years. It could have happened in billion different ways, and this is where hardcore religious people I debated have a thinking error. I am not talking about religious like you, I am talking more about creationists and people like that. I often see them say - atheists are dumb, they believe everything PERFECTLY happened with no intent or plan, and everything appeared out of NOTHING for no reason. Makes perfect sense, sarcasm...
First of all, this is why that thinking is wrong. That we live in a perfect world, like it was planned. Its just not true, there were billions of possibilities of how our planet could have developed, it just look perfect from human point of view, who can't picture an alternative or thinks its planned creation. When you realize that we are just result of billions of possibilities, you realize its not perfectly happened, it just happened. Over billion of years in a billion planets, life will start and evolve.
Second flawed thinking, that everything started from nothing. It sounds that way on the surface when you talk about big bang theory, but on this point, I come back to my original post. People who say its stupid just assume that humans must comprehend everything. We humans have comprehension limit, we simply can't comprehend the origins of existence. It makes no sense how time, space and matter appeared out of nothing, but it could be perfectly logical answer to that. That might sound like a cop out, but I am not saying its a proof there is no god or smth, I am just saying that you have to think further our own perception.
Its very interesting thing to talk about. People often say, before big bang there was god who initiated it, or that there was nothing. Just one thing, before big bang, there was no time, so ''before'' couldn't exist. You can interpret in a different ways, but I think people always overlook this point.
