Big bang, stars, protoplanetary disk, planet Earth, simple life, evolution, humans. I'm skipping a few steps, but that's basically how I think it went down. Basically the prevailing scientific ideas.

No motivating force or intelligence or design to it. Just chance. And maybe not such an astronomical chance like we used to think, too. After all, we used to think there was only one sun and one planet and that all that other stuff in the sky was window dressing, but now we know there are planets everywhere revolving around their own suns. It kinda seems like life is a statistical inevitability so even though science doesn't weigh in on whether there was a god controlling everything, it doesn't seem like the complexity of human intelligence is so special that we'd need to excuse it as something other than natural.
