Hydrogen is the simplest element there is. It consists of a single proton and a single electron. The Big Bang theory is that these particles are the leftovers from the explosion when the first particles condensed out of the energy cloud. All the matter and anti-matter cancelled each other out, leaving behind protons and electrons.
Due to stellar fusion, the hydrogen atoms get fused to form helium, then oxygen, carbon, nitrogen and iron. After stars go supernova, all of the other heavy elements beyond iron are formed. Nuclear fission gives everything else.

I do believe we will know more clearly some things upon death
The things we need to know ... many things we do not understand whilst on Earth
However as for the ultimate question perhaps we will be shown something that we have not yet considered from our limited perspective
why are we here?
why are we here?
artistpoet: These are my thoughts
I believe we all have a purpose for being here
What one's individual purpose is can only be answered by the individual
I think a key to knowing one's purpose lays in those things which we find fulfilment in
Often they are not our job of work but could be one's hobbies and interests
But generally speaking ... I think caring for those who we are placed amongst and those who cross our paths
Placed in servitude (NOBLE IDEA) to help others ; but what happens to the rest of us slackers that cannot envision helping anyone else rather than ourselves *I put my family and self first* before others: I am doomed
