How can we come from single cell organisms? Well, the same way that those single cell organisms came from gasses and elements present on earth, which by the way had no life properties at all. Check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller–Urey_experiment and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenesis Paddington you ask what's the point? That's where your line of thought is wrong. There is no point! There is no ultimate goal, or purpose for it all happening. There's no predetermined goal or finish line. It's all about chance, right conditions and then once life began...survival. What do we all have in common with every single living thing on Earth? We all want to survive thus we need to consume, convert to energy and then we excrete that which we don't need or have used. Once common purpose and that's to survive and reproduce. Yeah sure we're more evolved but in the end if you break it down it really comes down to those simple points. People keep asking "why, and what's the point", but by asking that you automatically imply that there's a predetermined purpose, which in turn implies that a decision was made, and then due to that that there was something/someone that made that decision. By doing that you're looking at this from a creationist point of view and thus won't understand it since you refuse to see it for what it truly is. Simple fact...if the Earth was a bit further away from the sun, or closer...we wouldn't have been here. And if we were, we might have been very much different from what we are now. For all we know, we could still have been bottom feeders. The galaxy is big my friends, and I asked you the other day whether or not you think that there's life out there other than us and you all said yes. I agree, in the sense that mathematically speaking, the chances are good that there's another planet, the right distance from a star to support life...with the right elements present to form that basic life which is needed to start the process. What is emotion? It's part of a survival instinct. Love makes you defend your young (reproduction), anger (defend your food), sadness (when fond of something, chemicals in the brain gets released which gets you hooked like you're on drugs, when that stimulus isn't there anymore you literally go on a downer which makes you feel the opposite of happy, which is sad), happy is the opposite of sad etc. So a lot of emotion is due to instinctive behavior and the "feeling" associated with it.
