Science has its limits and is principally unable to tell us much on the origin of matter and life. The laws we have discovered in creation are all about the existing situation and can't give us a real clue to the origin of matter. Take the law of conservation of matter and energy: this law doesn't fit the bill very well as regards the origin of matter and energy.
That's why it doesn't seem very strange to ask the One Who was there when it all began: the Creator.
The Bible informs us about the beginning, in the Old as well in the New Testament. That we don't understand everything seems pretty logical: our understanding is limited - so different from that of the Creator. The Almighty God can tell us very well how it all began - and also why and how it all went so wrong.

The creation of Adam by Michelangelo on the roof of the Sistine chapel
Greg Haslam wrote (in book nr. 3)
If God didn't say what He meant in Genesis, why should we trust Him anywhere else? If God couldn't get creation right first time in the beginning and was forced to use a 'hit and miss', 'road-kill' method involving eons of death and destruction, then how long might we have to wait for God to re-fashion the world at the end? It could be long wait for our final resurrection and new residence! Yet both are said to be instant outcomes of Christ's return in the Bible. Why not at the beginning also?
