I don't have an explanation for the universe, or its meaning.
However, please study microbiology a bit; you'll learn that even the simplest living organism is orders-of-magnitude more complex than any system humans ever created. It depends on correct interactions between hundreds of proteins, and the instructions for synthesizing those proteins are very cleverly encoded in its DNA.
Therefore REASON (not faith) tells us that the first living organism could not have simply assembled itself out of chemicals dissolved in the primordial soup, as some people desperately want to believe (probably due to a kneejerk backlash against religion).
No, some entity whose intelligence was vastly superior to ours must have assembled that first organism.
