Re: You Probably Got it Wrong
I am proceeding from this observation: (1) right distance, (2) right condition... and then life. Life obviously is the goal for the preceeding two observable facts.

Why should there be a goal at all. Why not that life just occurs when the conditions are right. This earth may be the only planet with life or there may be millions of planets with life, obviously the universe is a pretty big place. To me life forms where the conditions are right, but there is no goal nor the earth is where it is so life can occur.

Re: P3 OF POST # 35 APPEARS ONLY TO BE "BEGGING THE Q"
Then show me another earth with life as we know it.

Come up with the means to travel 1,000,000,000 times the speed of light and we'll go to another galaxy to find out if there are other planets, like earth, with similar life.

Re: Atheism
First RNA --> Single cell organism --> Multicellular organism --> Fish --> Reptile --> Mammal --> Ape --> Hominid --> Homo sapiens --> ...

I'll give 2 possibilities:

1) Something similar but different enough that it can't mate with Homo sapiens
2) extinction.
