Was life a lucky chance or determined?

The origin of life is one among the few most inexplicable,


profound yet fascinating questions we have ever encountered.
What makes it so special? Its the conflicting theories between the
explanations for the existence, one its determined by a so called
supernatural or its just a lucky chance?
There are billions of planets out there and here we are on a small
pale blue planet, it seems pretty random. Random combinations
of chemicals and bonding forms consciousness, completely nonliving atoms, molecules combine to give cells that merge to
create living species that are capable of contemplating the
awareness of themselves and the unawareness of the atoms. Was
this determined? Or a lucky chance?
The chemicals come from stars that are an integral part of outer
space, they connect us, and we are part of something big,
beautiful. And even more fascinating is the evolution of life from a
simple unicellular. That may not only be a lucky chance, it needed
constant fight for survival, never giving up. This just shows how
much survival and existence meant to all the living species. Why
should any organism live? This may seem totally absurd at first
sight, but a little bit of thought would make you perplexed.
So in short, stars die send chemical elements essential for life,
that falls on to a random planet out of billions, theres comet and
other celestial objects providing water, heat right combinations,
atmosphere and BOOM! THERES LIFE. OF COURSE ITSNT AS
EASY AS IT SOUNDS, BUT THIS CERTAINLY PROVIDES AN
INEXTRICABLE CONNECTION BETWEEN US AND THE COSMOS
WHICH AS IT TURNS OUT IS INEVITABLE. AGAIN, JUST ANOTHER
LUCKY CHANCE?
NOW LIFES SET IN, NEXT EVOLUTION. THIS IS WHERE
RANDOMNESS SUBTLY SHIFTS TO CERTAINTY, THOUGH THE

MUTATIONS SEEM RANDOM, VARIATIONS ARENT. ITS AS IF THEY


HAVE A GOAL, AN AIM. AND THEY DO, ITS CALLED SURVIVAL. BUT
NOT EVERYONE SURVIVES; ONLY THE FIT DOES, ITS SURVIVAL OF
THE FITTEST. AND HOW IS THAT DONE? NATURAL SELECTION.
WORDS PUT THE WHOLE PROCESS QUITE EASILY, BUT ITS NOT
THE CASE IN REALITY. EVEN THE SPERM FIGHTS ITS WAY IN, AND
SO DOES DEVELOPED SPECIES. IF THE PROCESS NEVER
OCCURRED, WE WOULDNT HAVE EXISTED TO QUESTION THE
CONSEQUENCE
IF
THE
PROCESS
NEVER
OCCURRED.
PHILOSOPHICALLY SPEAKING THIS FIGHT PROVIDES MEANING TO
OUR EXISTENCE! WE FOUGHT OUR WAY TO LIVE; WE MAY AS
WELL DO OUR BEST TO MAKE UP FOR THE EFFORTS WE AND OUR
ANCESTORS TOOK!
SO WHERE DOES IT END AT? LUCKY CHANCE? OR SO CALLED
GOD? (I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT THE BIG BANG ITSELF MAY BE
A LUCKY CHANCE).
I BELIEVE IN BOTH, WHAT DETERMINES IS THE SCIENTIFIC LAWS
THAT MAKE UP EVERYTHING, AND UNTIL WE GET A SUBTLE PROOF
FOR THE DETERMINISM OF SCIENTIFIC LAWS (GUT), WE MAY AS
WELL BELIEVE IN A LUCKY CHANCE AND CHERISH EVERY MOMENT
OF OUR LIVES!
