Where did people come from?

Where did the first person come from? If it came from monkeys then where did the monkeys came from? If it came from cells, where did they come from? If it was from a blast, where did the things that collided come from?

In an extremely broad sense, you’ve answered your own first three questions.

As for the fourth, the Big Bang was not necessarily a collision at all. The matter involved (all the matter in the universe) may have existed forever, or it may have emerged spontaneously, or it may have been contributed by another universe. We don’t know.

To apply your logic, if the “things” came from a god then where did the god come from? If the god has been around forever, then why can’t the “things” themselves have been?

Strictly speaking, this is a scientific question, not an atheistic one, but I’d be happy to answer.

To understand the answers to the questions you ask, you’ll need to do a fair bit of research. I’ll get you started:

“Where did the first person come from?”

Our Primate Origins

Where did monkeys come from?

Where did cells come from?

Where did everything come from?
