Is this the ‘best of all possible worlds’? When you look around, do you see the handiwork of an “intelligent designer”?

A pair of unjaundiced eyes might notice the following:



  1. Most planets are unstable
  2. Most places would kill life instantly
  3. We are on a collision course with the Andromeda Galaxy
  4. Our one-way expanding universe will eventually wind down to oblivion


  1. Earthquakes & volcanoes level cities
  2. Tsunamis kill hundreds of thousands
  3. Floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and lightning strikes kill many more
  4. Humans can’t live on two-thirds of the earth’s surface
  5. 99% of all species that ever lived are now extinct
  6. It took 3-5 billion years just to make multi-cellular life


  1. Hundreds of diseases can kill us
  2. The human eye is practically blind compared to the entire spectrum of light waves
  3. As warm-blooded creatures we must constantly scrounge for food
  4. Human anatomy . . .

Well . . . has it occurred to anyone that we have an entertainment complex smack dab in the middle of a sewage system?
