Everything in the world began with a yes. One molecule said yes to another molecule and life was born.
The first thing I would like to point out is how this topic seems to be a bit of a paradox, if you think about it. Everything in the world began with a yes, but that includes things that are not living things and cannot say yes without being alive (in which case they would have been alive at some point before the start of the universe). It also includes things that can't say yes because they do not exist yet (they will be born later). So if everything begins with a yes, then by definition we must accept there is nothing outside of time right now.
What does it mean to say yes? Does saying yes turn something into a living thing? It seems like the answer is no. If you have two molecules (or atoms or quarks, for that matter), and one of them says 'yes' to another molecule, then a bond will form between the two molecules. But this bond will not necessarily be permanent. They can still move apart again which means they are never truly alive as everything in the world begins with a 'yes'. To be permanently united would require an act of love, which I don't believe these molecules possess.
