How did life arise?

Living things are purposeful. Non-living things are not.

Many current life forms are capable of self-reproduction. Supposedly earlier life forms cannot.

Many current live forms are storing and processing information. Non-living things do not.

What is more likely? That lifeless and mindless things somehow became purposeful, reproducing, and information processing on their own?

Or is it more likely that an intelligent being, God, created these purposeful, reproducing, information processing life forms - including these weird electric eels, ..., and us human beings?

What is life anyway? And how did it arise?
