    Well, one can speculate. But I’d like to know how one could do any more than speculate without becoming absurd.

    Speculating about the existence of warp drive is no excuse for absurdity, either, but I’m not going to let that keep me from wearing my Starfleet Academy hoodie!!! LOL

    Out of this vast profusion of planets, it’s entirely reasonable to expect that a rare few would have everything right: the right distance from their parent star, the right material composition, the right amount of liquid water, and all the other factors necessary for life to arise and thrive. We are the lucky ones, because we wouldn’t be here if we weren’t. Thus, the well-suitedness of our planet – compared to all the other planets that aren’t – isn’t an argument for theism, but a potent argument for atheism. The universe we live in is what we’d expect a godless universe to look like, or to put it another way, this hypothesis has superior explanatory power: atheism predicts a universe just like the one we see.
