The universe is suited for life

yeah, i know the argument against this is theres no life anywhere else (that we know of) so how can the universe be suited for it?

easy: its the only place that life can even form. Where the conditions are right for life to exist, is a very thriving environment. Sure there are volcanoes and stuff, and asteroids, but that's life.

Life may be spread out near and far, but where it does exist is an extremely sustainable environment.

oh, and humans arent the only life forms

Earth isnt even very well suited for life! The unvierse absolutely isnt. go to the north pole, the sahara desert, or the middle of the ocean and tell me how long u last. Or maybe deep space, or any other planet in the galaxy.

99.5% of the unverse is absolutely horrible for life and totally unsuited for it. Life adapts to the world/unvierse. not the other way around. The reason were here is not indicitive of earth being suited for us, but that life is freaking resilient and stubborn and will spring up anywhere its able to.

creatures live at the north pole, along with peope, and there are creatures that live in the sahara, AND we have successfully sent bacteria into outerspace and it lived

If even one other part of the universe has life other than Earth, the universe is suited for life. Earth is suited for life. Why? There's another way you can define, "suited for life" which is that life can exist at all. Your defining it as "good for life" which I agree with. No place is meant to be good for life, but when scientists call a planet "suited for life" they refer to any place it can exist.

Hell! For all we know this universe could simply be a cancer growing in the intestines of some giant space leech.

While I haven't thought of it that way, I have thought something like that before...

That's pretty much what I was sayin'..... I just thought that us being something deadly inside intestines was more interesting.

Feelingtruth, are you being sarcastic? If you are I don't agree with you at all.

Side: yes

If the universe was not suited for life we wouldn't be able to live in it like we do.

Side: yes

Apparently, if I am typing on this computer on this website, then yes.

Most of the universe is empty space. Then there's stars and inhospitable planets, very few planets are actually suitable for life.

Side: no

well it has to be, suns only have one safe zone.... but when they are in the safe spot, or whatever astronomists call it, then it is perfectly viable.

If life was everywhere we would probably have planetary invasions daily.

How can you say the universe isn't suitable for life when it is the only place in the universe that life has actually sprung up???

Side: yes

It's more like saying a manor house with only one furnished and habitable room is fit to live in. (the rest are filled with rubbish, or exposed)

And these safe zones make up .00000000001% of the universe, if that. Were talking about the entire universe.

The universe is the only place in the universe? What?

And exactly, if life WAS everywhere that might be an issue, but it isnt. Thats because 99% of the other planets, stars, asteriods, moons, and deep space are not able to sustain life... earth and the other very few lucky planets are few and far between

Side: no
