In The Beginning

But look, by no effort of our own we find ourselves living on an oasis, placed perfectly by chance (or God) at the perfect distance from the sun to support the life that’s on it.  The universe is something like 13 billion years old. The earth has been around for a bit longer than 4 billion years. We humans have only been around for 200,000 years – a whisper in the lifetime of earth, and even less in the lifespan of the universe.
