The universe is immense, therefore you are not special.
Why is that? If the problem is that the universe is immense, then human life would be instantly special if a person were a bit bigger (like a few million light-years tall).
That’s not what I mean. I mean that when you look at the universe, our world looks like it came by chance
Special things happen by chance all the time. Mozart was born to a musical family.
Yes, but Christians believe they have a special place in the universe, which means the world can’t come to be by chance.
What Christian argues that providence doesn’t extend to chance events? What a perfectly stupid idea! And when will they start taking Eccesiastes seriously?
You’re making stupid, technical objections. The best hypothesis is that the world just happened. It doesn‘t look planned, it looks like a random event. Maybe some other hypothesis explains things, but purposelessness explains everything best.
Perhaps. But natural causes are more evident, and you haven’t said a word about nature. Many of the natural causes that make worlds are pretty well known: mass, force, energy. We can study these things and know how our world came to be.
But that ‘s what I mean, all these things just happen from natural causes.
Is this where you bring in those perfectly worthless “blind forces” again?
Yes. If you just let the forces bang around enough- blindly- you get a world.
And if you let billions of seeds bang around enough- blindly- you get some plants. Living things purposely use immense numbers of seeds. If it takes so many seeds to make a dandelion, we could expect a universe to be left over after making an earth.
