Wow. Out of like 25 replies, maybe four of us have understood what AZLS1 is trying to do.
Unlike what the majority of you think, he is not telling us that the greater part of the universe is actually uninhabited. He is not telling us that
in reality, a creator only cares about us, or wouldn't have just set up a universe then watched it play out.
This was a ploy to trick fanatical christians.
According to the bible, God created earth, and he created man. Okay. So, he could likely have created _just_ earth, and _just_ its inhabitants,
without making the rest of the universe. I mean, why go to the effort? The thing he is trying to get Fanatics to say is that 'God Created the
Universe for Us' - because according to the bible, we're the only life out there. He made it all for us. So, once they've said this, he'd rebut
'But, you are honestly that conceited? You really think humans are so special that the ENTIRE UNIVERSE exists for us? If it did, why wouldn't he
have made it amazing? If you were to set someone up with their own personal life, that you've created for them, would you make them perfectly
average, like our solar system, or would you have given them NOTHING, or perhaps, EVERYTHING? Because if we were really that important, then maybe
we'd be given a crapload of habitable, but uninhabited planets. We'd be given unlimited resources, and we'd be given the most unusual and exciting
place in existence. For our enjoyment' - See, he wanted to say something along those lines.
He was expecting religious nuts to fall into this giant trap he felt he'd set, but instead, all you non-hardcore-christians came in and fought the
fanatical argument for the fanatics, without them having to break their rules, or worry in the slightest. Good job.
