There are really only two possibilities.
1. The physical Universe always existed, and the things we see around us are just products of time, chance, matter and energy. People, aliens (if they exist) and all apparently conscious entities are just physical matter and physical energy which have occurred randomly and as a by product of the "laws of physics". These "laws" just "are" – there is no way to explain why they are the way they are.
2. There is a spirit world, and a Great Spirit or group of spiritual entities are behind all the apparent order, design, logic of the Universe. Christians believe that there is a tri-une "Great Spirit" which we call God, although the name "God" can be different in different languages.
