“It’s amazing that humans exist. For life to start on Earth, we needed everything to be just right.” 1
It is an amazing feat, that everything came together just right: temperature, gravity, oxygen, and water, making life for humans possible on earth. Was it an accident, was it the “will of God,” or was it good programming?

“The theory of parallel worlds, or the multiverse, posits an infinite number of realities with an infinite number of possibilities within them. Picture the floors of an apartment building. Universes are part of the multiverse much like floors are part of the building—they share a common layout, but each is distinct, and they’ll contain different things…
“The theory has all sorts of crazy implications for the meaning of life. But if there really are multiple universes, why did they come about? How come there are so many?” 2
Indeed, however you look at it, the question of our origins is fascinating. And it’s a fair test for open-mindedness to notice how we react to these questions. It’s easy to close down when confronted by crazy—in our view—ideas that run counter to what we currently believe. Travel back a few centuries and imagine the initial responses to someone’s proposal that the earth was in fact round, not flat. “Prove it!” was the outcry. And, back at that time, proof was impossible to provide. Here we are again, prompted by technology, facing another crisis of perception and belief: Where did we come from and why, and who or what created the conditions for life as we know it on planet earth?
Again, it’s impossible to prove anything… at the moment. But there did come a moment back then when someone did prove that the earth was round. Perhaps humanity is nearing another break through, when we will discover and prove beyond dispute what/who made us and this world, and what our purpose is.
In the meantime—because it’s probably not healthy to hold our breath waiting for the answers—why not adopt whatever belief serves us best and live with enthusiasm? It may seem dismissive to suggest this but what difference does it really make? The arguments stimulate ideas and passions but so what? We could waste a sunny day (or an entire life) roaming around in our heads!
Here’s another compelling speculation: “… humans have ventured into space, so shouldn’t civilizations elsewhere have also tried space travel? With a billion other galaxies out there, some of which are billions of years older than ours, wouldn’t at least one have mastered space travel? Since Earth has the conditions for life, you’d even expect Earth to have been colonized by an advanced civilization at some point.
“Yet we have found no trace of any other form of intelligent life in the universe. The Fermi Paradox can simply be summed up as—“Where is everybody?”
“This ties back into simulation theory in a few different ways. If life should exist elsewhere but only exists on Earth, that could be evidence that we’re in a simulation. Those behind the simulation chose to simulate life nowhere else, for simplicity, or to see how humans do alone.” 3
Ironically, this argument lends some credence to the ideas in Intelligent Design. Perhaps it needn’t have taken that long to create this program… perhaps seven actual days was enough, especially if years of beta testing had determined the values and coding procedures. So, God (not necessarily the biblical bearded one but a team of programmers) made us for some reason. Research, entertainment, because this is the nature of life, to create more of itself, etc.? Regardless, here we are.
