All Wet

Caterpillars turn into butterflies. Tadpoles into frogs. Children into adults.

There are countless, natural wonders that occur on Earth every day.

Monkeys into man? I don’t know anyone who has ever witnessed it but, as the theory goes, if we wait a few million years, perhaps we will live to see it. The theory of evolution has been used to answer many questions for which we have no other answer except - God willed that it should be that way.

Let’s see if we can use their theory to answer the following question:

We know that the sun is 93 million miles away from the Earth. Any further away, we would freeze, any closer we would fry. Any bigger we would be toast, any smaller we’d be ice. If the Earth didn’t rotate, one half of the surface would be as dry as a desert. If the axis weren’t tilted, the fields would have no rest. If the atmosphere were any thicker, the sun would not be able to evaporate the waters of the seas and there would be no clouds. If gravity were any weaker, rain would not fall from the sky, if it were any stronger, we wouldn’t be able to get out of bed (which is difficult enough as it is). As far as we know, the Earth is the only place in our galaxy that has naturally occurring water (since it only exists as a liquid between 32 and 212 degrees Fahrenheit). Without water, there is no organic life. If there were no wind, the continents would only be fertile at the shores (much like the Nile and Egypt). If the wind didn’t blow, carbon dioxide which is only a small portion of the air we breathe, would never reach plants and there would be no food. No food, no monkeys to turn into man.

So here’s the question:

If everything evolved by accident, how did the sun-wind-gravity-water cycle evolve so precisely that it allows for the survival of intelligent life (somewhere) on our planet for thousands of years?

Dumb luck? Or perhaps you want to see alternative answer #2 above.
