Stile for the best argument about Earth's "specialness"
Author: Stile
Forum: Faith and Belief:
Thread:The meaning of the trinity
Message #: Message 214

This is the most rational argument against life, and specifically human life, being a miracle of creation because it is found on a planet that seems quite suited for the life that lives on it.

He argues that it would be far more miraculous if we lived on a planet hostile to life.

This is one of those things that I would like to print out on a card that I carry in my wallet to whip out and use as a rebuttal the next time someone uses the "Life is a miracle because Earth is perfect argument", with proper citation of course.

And if we take the number of seconds in 100 twelve hour days, we get 4,320,000 seconds. Add to that the number of feet in 1,000 furlongs (660,000), you get 4,980,000. If you then add 42 of you diameters of the earth (7,920 * 42), you get to 5,312,640. Add 12 divine measures of 432, the number of square rods in a cubit (160) and the number of sacred hours in a day (24), and you get to 5,318,008.
Turn that upside down on a calculator and yea, I say unto you that you get "boobies" - proof positive of the Lord's most inspired creation !

As a raging loony creationist, she's a good 'un and I think we're lucky to have her.

Her writing is legible. I always disagree with her but I understand what she is saying.
