Lots of Fun Material, but...
There is lots in this opening post that needs to be discussed; that is the good news.

The not-so-good news is that we try to focus each thread here since we (for a number of reasons) shut threads down at about 300 threads and, more importantly, it is less confusing if we have focus.

Your have points that range from cosmology to details of biology. They are so totally separate that we put them in different forums (sic) not just different threads.

You have a large number that are grouped under what is called the Anthropic Principle and maybe you could just discuss those under that umbrella.

You also have some that are so totally wrong that even creationist web sites say they shouldn't be used any more. (These are sometimes called PRATTs -- points refuted 1,000 times). I suggest you spend a bit of time researching what you are posting. (see point 7)

Others are simply known to be factually incorrect. So you damage your case by putting them forward. (point 9).

You have also lifter at least some of this from another source. This is plagiarism if you don't attribute it (even if it is you as the source it doesn't hurt to reference that fact so you don't appear to be dishonest.)

You might want to take this and pick 2 or 3 points that you consider strongest. Then check to see if they have been discussed here or elsewhere. You can then strengthen you argument and get this off to a better start.

When you have chosen those and updated this please reply so that an admin notices.
