preSocratic writings, 5th and 6th century BC, marked a beginning of what is now known as philosophy. Seth also shared stories he'd heard about the origin of life. Perhaps some bacteria in a meteorite hit earth and instigated evolution of life. Of course, there's always the temptation to say that when something begins here, it actually began elsewhere. Life never began where one might expect. It's beginning arose from conditions originating elsewhere, which leads into infinite regress. What exactly caused the big bang... in the beginning, matter existed, which gave rise to further existence, which intensified into a bang, a cosmic orgasm which began the universe as it appears to us.
