Even in a vacuum of infinite-empty space, virtual particles form spontaneously, coalesce, and universes emerge. Then, elementary particles become elements, elements molecules, molecules compounds. Eventually, lipids form vacuoles, minerals like clay catalyze the formation of nucleic acids and simple cells emerge. Over the course of millions of years those simple cells become exceedingly complex. Through natural selection, eventually we have protists, plants, fish, and ultimately, terrestrial organisms. No magic, not very much mystery, and no miracles ... just straightforward science.
It may lack the allure of mythology, but such is truth.
