The universe is estimated to be close to 14 billion years old, and so large that we can't detect the outer boundaries of it (because light/EMR from stars out there won't reach us for millions/billions of years still). In all this vast time and space, every form of matter/energy has reacted with every other form of matter/energy under every possible condition, probably many times over. The basic building blocks of life are amino acids, which we can create in a lab. That we can't create life (yet) does not mean that it can't be done intentionally or otherwise, just that in our very limited time here so far we've not even scratched the surface of possibilities. If you throw a million random objects into a pile a million times, chances are they will land stacked up in interesting ways.
And besides (and I'm not trying to offend or troll here, this is what I firmly believe) it's ridiculous to think that some magic ghost created everything.
"Chances of a single cell happening is exactly 1 in 1". 1/1 is 100%. That means what if I throw the building blocks of the Universe, I will get a living cell. What you said at first was totally off what you said after. The chances of a living cell happening out of building blocks which are dead, is in fact 0. It is just not possible. Its like saying:
0 + 0 = 1
0 = non-living element
1 = living cell
The math clearly states, that it is not possible to create a living cell out of dead elements.
