thank you...

1) what is  the source of  all these  ' atoms ' , (material) from which , the first cells were assembled    ??

We don't know and neither do you. We are left to theorize. Anyway, your question presupposes that our everyday notion of causality pre-existed the universe. Current thinking is that the laws of physics as we know them were not there in the absolute beginning.

2) if  we could move  back on the ' time line ' ,  when was the beginning of  this world  around us ?  where , the accident of  ' cell assembly '  occurred ?? and what  was  before this  beginning ??

The beginning was The Big Bang. What do you mean by "this world around us?" If you mean Earth, do a little googling. There's a fair amount of agreement on how old the planet is. If by "this world around us" you mean the universe, your question (a) presupposes that there WAS something before the beginning and (b) that if there was, we can know it. Back to the answer to the first question.

One thing scientifically naive people do that has them spouting nonsense is thinking everything, The Big Bang, whatever existed before The Big Bang (if there was anything) has to conform to the physical laws governing our daily lives on the scale of everyday life. However, once you get down into the realm of the super small (atoms, subatomic particle, and strings) nothing behaves according to those rules.

The point is, there's no reason to believe that in the early universe things played by the rules of Newtonian/Einsteinian physics. 

3) if  we could move  forever  in any direction , in the universe ,  what will be at   the end ?  is it more space ? then we  still in our world. is it blocked by some material ? then what is behind …?

I can't divine what you are asking here. Does this help?: Massive objects emit gravity and gravity has this strange property of making space behave like a substance that can be compressed or stretched. It would seem logical that in some sense, once you get beyond the influence of gravity, there is true nothingness.

What was before the beginning….. ???

Not the classic "first cause" question? Heh. Why not.

Where does the surface of the earth begin? Sometimes a question itself is meaningless except as an indicator of a certain lack of understanding.

some molecules and atoms combined together to constitute some biological cells (by accident) and these cells started  to multiply and produce different organists

The science to date supports the hypothesis that self-assembling organic molecules attained properties of self-replication and information transmission over time. Self-assembly is not unusual in nature.

, and  evolution  occurred due to the " natural selection " and\or, due to the variations of the surrounding environments…. etc. It is a nice  hypothesis…., but we still have  some questions :-

Evolution is a theory, not a hypothesis. A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation for some aspect of nature, based on (1) a body of facts which have been exhaustively confirmed through observation, experimentation, (2) the ability to make accurate predictions with consistent accuracy across a broad area of scientific inquiry, and (3) production of strong evidence in favor of the theory from multiple independent sources.

1) what is  the source of  all these  ' atoms ' , (material) from which , the first cells were assembled    ??

The big bang, according to the best evidence. As far as we can tell, 'these atoms' and all other subatomic particles formed within the first minute that the universe existed.

2) if  we could move  back on the ' time line ' ,  when was the beginning of  this world  around us ?  where , the accident of  ' cell assembly '  occurred ?? and what  was  before this  beginning ??

The earth is about 4.5 billion years old, based on evidence from radiometric age dating of meteorites, terrestrial samples, lunar samples, and comparisons of the mass and luminosity of the Sun to those of other stars. Nobody knows where on earth the first self-replicating protocell formed. How could we? Some of the earliest self-assembly events may be the same ones we see today involving lipid molecules, which combine to form a thin polar membrane made of two layers. This membrane is the continuous outer barrier around a cell. Before the first of these events occurred, who knows? I would imagine the environment wasn't conducive for allowing it to happen.

3) if  we could move  forever  in any direction , in the universe ,  what will be at   the end ?  is it more space ? then we  still in our world. is it blocked by some material ? then what is behind …?

If you could move forever in any direction it means there is no end.

hoping to find logical  answers , in order to get better  understanding  to our existence.....

Consider looking for scientific answers in addition to logical ones, since logic is only as good as the knowledge it works with. As such, the answers above are (in brief) the best ones we have based on the available science and logic.

A hypothesis must pass a number of tests before coming a scientific theory (an overarching explanation organizing the facts and indicating areas for further research). One of those tests is just the plain ol' giggle test. 

The idea that the universe was created by some guy called God—a guy who apparently is a magical sorcerer—simply doesn't even pass the giggle test. Can we prove God doesn't exist? No, because he's in the same ridiculous class as leprechauns, unicorns, and the Casper the Friendly Ghost.

The idea that the universe was created by some guy called God—a guy who apparently is a magical sorcerer—simply doesn't even pass the giggle test.

Let me try.

"God did it!"

*Giggle*

Fail!

According to ask.com, "Protons formed within 3 minutes of the big bang with electrons combining about 300,000 years later, forming hydrogen!"

THANKS , AND WHAT IS THE SOURCE OF  THESE PROTONS AND ELECTRONS , 

AND WHAT WAS BEFORE THEIR  EXISTENCE ??

One primary difference between theists and atheists, lies in the fact that atheists are comfortable in saying, "I don't know, and in fact, Humankind may never know, but we're OK with that, and we WILL keep looking for the answers, as long as our species exists."

BTW, that all-caps thing is really ANNOYING!

PS, interesting that your profile is set to "Private," something you'd rather we didn't know --?

BTW, that all-caps thing is really ANNOYING!

I GUESS THAT, FOR EMPHASIS, ONE GOES INTO lower case.

BTW, that all-caps thing is really ANNOYING!

I'm beginning to believe that that is his total reason for being here.

I think it's to convert us to Islam.

Not to convert to STUPID?
