Pretty dodgy I reckon. Half a million miles out or a couple of degrees either way of the tilt & we wouldn't exist.

Why, even Genesis makes more sense, apart from to people like Richard Dawkins.

How do you know its exactly where it should be??? Out of all the planets is it the only one thats exactly where it should be?? So if God had anything to do with it, his aim wasnt that good - or did he only want humans on just the one planet?? How did he know?? and where was God at the time of all of this??? Sorry, I am really interested in how you can make this work in reality??

God's aim is absolutely appalling.

So, yes. He's also a She!!!
I see the silly season has started. How do you know any of this is true?

Apart from there are countless billions of other stars in the universes any one of which could have a planet with life. Some strange thinking going on here...

Surely not a big bang.
This might explain everything at about 03.38

It's exactly where it should be because any nearer or further from the sun than its 92,000,000 miles, give or take a few, would result in either freezing cold or boiling hot. Death to us. And the tilt gives us the seasons.
The best book I've read on the seasons is one by Anthony Smith, called "The Seasons". It's old, but still relevant. And he's a scientist with little interest in 'religion'.

So why did God bother with all the trillions of other stars and planets?

Actually, the village is split! The "foreigners" who immigrated from southern Spain years ago support Real.
The Basques tend to support Barça simply because they hate Madrid & prefer separatists such as Catalans!
So you go to the appropriate bar.

Yes, could have.
Is it that important though?
The bible after all is not a scientific treatise; more an explanation of how God works.

Who knows? One thing to ask if we get to Heaven!
Maybe to keep us guessing, or posting questions!!

There are more planets. But so what? Ours is more than enough to manage, not that we're doing a very good job of that simple task.
Being in America, perhaps you could enlighten me as to why on earth NASA are spending so much money on going to Mars. What on earth for? Interest?
