Dude since you like to talk so much and supposedly know so much. The universe is 13.7 billion years old, the earth 4.7 billion years old. What was there and going on for the 9 billion years before earth was formed?
Of relevance to us?

First generation stars.

The original stars and material of the universe was almost entirely hydrogen and helium with a touch of lithium. The lightest elements.

Heavier elements only formed in the death throes of large gen 1 stars, which then exploded (nova, supernova) and ejected masses of heavier elements. You can look that up for more details. Its a question of the conditions required for heavier element fusion to occur and it only happens in the extreme conditions when massive stars are collapsing as their hydrogen runs out. As they collapse a new round of heavy fusion occurs at even higher temps and pressures and that causes the nova explosion.

Our solar system formed from such a result. Which is why the heavier elements needed for life abound.

Took billions of years of stellar life cycles to even get to a point where biological life as we know it could begin.

How many children's Bible story activity books do you think have been printed? You want to talk about "get(ting) sick of"? Cartoons of pandas, kangaroos and raccoons grinning from the deck of the ark...

yet there is not one teensy shred of evidence to suggest any god, gods or goddesses ever existed, so why would you make such a silly statement?

basically, you are saying a myth like the Easter Bunny created time...

no, that is another one of your aneurisms getting ready to POP! when you try to think and counter the clear, verifiable facts i always give you that prove your entire world view is based on proven lies...

Nope, humans started counting in retroactive in light of the hubble constant and WMAP readings by extrapolation of the motion of the universe and looking into the past by observation of the very distant sky. To quote NASA and the top 1% percentile rank of achieving minds.
The WMAP science team has…
... has put the "precision" in "precision cosmology" by reducing the allowed volume of cosmological parameters by a factor in excess of 68,000. The three most highly cited physics and astronomy papers published in the new millennium are WMAP scientific papers--- reflecting WMAP's enormous impact.
…mapped the pattern of tiny fluctuations in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation (the oldest light in the universe) and produced the first fine-resolution (0.2 degree) full-sky map of the microwave sky.
…determined the universe to be 13.77 billion years old to within a half percent.
…nailed down the curvature of space to within 0.4% of "flat" Euclidean.
…determined that ordinary atoms (also called baryons) make up only 4.6% of the universe.
…completed a census of the universe and finds that dark matter (matter not made up of atoms) is 24.0%
…determined that dark energy, in the form of a cosmological constant, makes up 71.4% of the universe, causing the expansion rate of the universe to speed up.- "Lingering doubts about the existence of dark energy and the composition of the universe dissolved when the WMAP satellite took the most detailed picture ever of the cosmic microwave background (CMB)." - Science Magazine 2003, "Breakthrough of the Year" article
… mapped the polarization of the microwave radiation over the full sky and discovered that the universe was reionized earlier than previously believed.- "WMAP scores on large-scale structure. By measuring the polarization in the CMB it is possible to look at the amplitude of the fluctuations of density in the universe that produced the first galaxies. That is a real breakthrough in our understanding of the origin of structure." - ScienceWatch: "What's Hot in Physics", Simon Mitton, Mar./Apr. 2008.
…detected that the amplitude of the variations in the density of the universe on big scales is slightly larger than smaller scales. This, along with other results, supports "inflation", the idea is that the universe underwent a dramatic period of expansion, growing by more than a trillion trillion fold in less than a trillionth of a trillionth of a second. Tiny fluctuations were generated during this expansion that eventually grew to form galaxies.
… determined that the distribution of these fluctuations follows a bell curve with the same properties across the sky, and that there are equal numbers of hot and cold spots in the map. The simplest version of the inflation idea predicted these properties and remarkably, WMAP’s precision measurement of the properties of the fluctuations has confirmed these predictions, in detail.

I suppose you think you above JPL and the boys at Cal Tec, but what you really are ...is lacking the ability to understand it anyway.
