There's no other way for life to have emerged unless life always was.

14 or so billion years ago, there was a massive explosion of unfathomable magnitude. Then, life happened. That's why there is a God. There is a God because there is life because God is the essence of life. Without the essence of life pre-existing life forms, it would have been impossible for life to emerge.
The chicken came before the egg.
Is it possible that we are a product of a created image, as listed in Genesis 1:27? A much more plausible view is to see that we are a construct of energy, placed into motion by time, space, matter and energy.
In the beginning (Time), God created the heavens (Space) and the earth (Matter). Let there be light (Energy).
There are many scientists moving toward this view in the last ten years. A holographic model of creation explains the high state of order and low entropy at the beginning of time. We can explain the spin and motion of the Toroidal nature of time by plotting it on a golden curve. 14 billion years would be divided into 7 rectangles, each smaller than the last by a ratio of 1:1.618. Man is on the 'now' of the wave as we perceive time. To us, the wave is always equal. From a distance, the first part of the wave is the largest and the end is the smallest. In reality, all parts are equal, only seen differently from various distances. Look down from the top of a vortex and the illusion that it narrows is only a construct of distance.
If you can envision this, then realize that we collapse the indeterminate wave of reality as the observer. Reality can be easily seen like memory in a computer game. The gamer only observes the part of memory he collapses from the overall game-space. There is no reason we are not doing the same thing. Time would be an illusion of wave function and the quantum observer opening a space around him. To God, we are readable at every perspective. The space form beginning to end does not change, yet the observers have the ability to change the states of matter in the space in a limited way, creating their own unique realities.
Artificial life develops sentience by doing. Confucius says, "I hear and I forget. I see and I learn. I do and I understand." In my opinion, we are given a reality to become something of value in the next.
