Was this Planet Really Made For us?

Is all of the creation evidence of an intelligent designer, including the completed mechanisms of the human body? Should you respond yes, then I say, the intelligence quotient of this designer leaves much to be desired.

While I marvel at the evolution of the human body and brain contained therein, it is far from perfect. The dynamics of all the metabolical processes would not have been designed by a superior intelligence.

An Intelligent designer who designs the sun that creates cancer, and will eventually expand into a red giant and kill all life on earth.

Was this Planet Really Made For us?Everything outside our planet will kill humans within moments. On our own planet earth, 70% is covered by undrinkable water. Of the 30% of remaining land mass, half of this area is uninhabitable for humans. That leaves 15% of the earth’s surface for humans to live on. Even in this small space, practically everything is trying to kill us. Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods, sinkholes, etc.

Believing our universe was “fine tuned” to support human life is truly laughable. We can only inhabit 15% of a single planet in an unimaginably immense universe, with no hope of even living on another planet within our own solar system, and there are countless ways for even this minuscule area to kill humans.

The fine tuning argument (the variables are perfect for life) is fraught with flaws. Firstly, it assumes that there is a purpose to the universe, and in this case, purpose means the intelligent goal of creation, which assumes a creator. If a creator is your claim, then your logic is inherently circular.

The universe is energy in motion. The universe runs itself. If believers insist their god created the universe, then it is like guys who need someone to touch their d**k to get hard, and that someone can only be a magic cloud fairy.

Religionists arguments are tinted with anthropic bias since it assumes that we humans are a goal, rather than an ancillary result. Indeed, if intelligent life were a goal, we should see planets lined up to make the universe a veritable crop of life.

We are no different from some mold on a slice of bread saying, “WOW! This is so perfect for our existence, that this bread must have been made for us.” Of course, the bread was not made for the mold. In our case, we can see what happens to other worlds which are not fit for life, such as Mercury. There is no indication that, other than ourselves, anything in the universe does not give a damn about our existence.

The final nail in the coffin is the argument that the parameters for life are so finely tuned. If your god intended to create life, why make the parameters so sensitive? It implies that the god is either constrained and thus impotent, or he is just inept. Either way, it does not argue well for your creator.

    And still, here we are. ?

    You have some interesting thoughts here. But I must disagree a bit, because of the polarity of them. For you it’s either… or, I think it’s neither… nor. Somehow human beings tend to place themselves in the center of God’s plans when they think of themselves as his creation. Observe yourself when you create (write, for example). Do you concentrate entirely on the consequences of your writing or simply follow the flow and bring to life what’s inside you? I mean, of course, not the writing that has to be done, but the one you can’t help doing. You feel the urge to create and it brings pleasure and sense of fulfillment. This might have been the case with our God or evolution, or whatever you want to call it. It creates. It makes possible something that was not possible before. Religions often say thst

    • Hello @zoryanapaliy:disqus

      I respect your creed. I really do. 😉

      You and I both know that the only thing we superior human being possess is we have an ability to “Think”. That’s what makes us separable and lofty from other living things.

      Therefore, we 7.4 Billion People have 7 billion different thoughts. Most people argue there’s god. While some people do not. And I am the one who does not believe in so-called GOD that people created. No offense.. hehe

      I am an Agnostic person. I know there is something out there in this endless universe among billions of galaxies. The real question out here is, Why is there ? Who is there ? What is there ?

      What if I tell you there’s another “You” out of there in this Parallel Universe ? What if the life we are living is just a dream and we only wake up when we die ? What if we human beings were put here by Aliens on the first place ? 😀 These are the things we have no answers to.

      They are just Metaphors..

      Anyway, we share the similar but different thoughts as well. 😉

        I am afraid I am not always super-convinced by the ability of humans to really “think”. I was pretty shocked the first time I heard of Libet Experiments (he proves that when you think you make a conscious decision, it has, in fact, already been made and you just act on it). As much I am not convinced by 7 billion different thoughts. You surely can observe multiple distinctive “thinking patterns” rather than different thoughts. To some extent they are, of course, influenced by media, politics, etc, but you surely have observed someone sharing with you their thoughts or ideas that you yourself have once thought or had. So the thought that your thought is your thought might be greatly overrated 🙂 Moreover, if you observe yourself closely, or write down your thoughts regularly, you’ll most likely find out that your “CD is stuck on repeat” (pardon the expression) and you just think the same thoughts over and over again with the addition of some new observational facts that might influence or broaden your concepts. Do you agree or not? Interesting to know.

        The unique ability that in my view human being possesses is creativity or connecting to the flow. But it’s “my” point of view.

        As to parallel universe, dream or aliens – bring it on! 😀 You forgot the Matrix 😉

        Similar, but different indeed 🙂

        • Matrix is one of my favorite movies. xD So is Interstellar. 😉

          And about our limited thoughts. I am somehow against on this. What I believe is the limits of human ability is not because of the brain limitations but because of limits we impose on ourselves.

          As we can see, our brain has immensely developed capabilities that early man didn’t have. And still we are evolving. Super geniuses like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking still exist on this planet. Einstein was here on the same earth we are living. Tesla was here too. I am here too. 😛

          Anyway, I just watched the “Libet Experiments” short documentary on YouTube. Yes, it does make sense about our free will. However, if we study the structure of human brains in depth, they are limitless. No scientist has yet proven how they really work. In fact, we know nothing about the brain which contains 100 million neurons. We have these unique patterns inside our brain in each individual which makes us different.

          Creativity is the growth isn’t it ? You have an interesting viewpoint on reasoning.. 😉

          I think I should go and read Neuroscience books from now on. xD

            He-he, this discussion reminds me of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5cQcmAtjJ0 🙂

            But I agree there are geniuses, they just have different “thinking patterns” in my “theory” 😉 There is also a thought that the brain might be a connector rather than a processor.

            But let’s not complicate any further 🙂

          • Just one miracle.. 😉

            Now I am going to download this movie “Illegally” xD
