Do you think this all happened by chance... Random?
The only honest answer is, we don't know. If you are asking if a perfect entity created it all, the answer is a resounding no. If you want to say that
an intelligent alien species had something to do with it, or that a scientist from another dimension created our universe in an experiment - though
highly improbable, I can't say it is impossible. No perfect god. Never. Ever. Not possible.
We are animals... But we are in many ways superior to other animals. We can instill our will to these animals (domestication, cultivation, etc.)
We are self-centered, arrogant animals that think we are ALL that. If birds could talk they would say that they can fly with their own wings; humans
can't do that. Therefore they would think they were superior.
Polar bears live out in the open in below freezing temps. Humans can't do that. So polar bears would think they were superior. Can you build a dam
with your teeth? Swim faster than a shark?
Point being, many species have unique abilities that would make them feel superior if they could think about it. We can think. That's our unique
ability, but it doesn't make us superior.
You say, we don't know. Then you say with a resounding no that a perfect creator did all this.
How do you know what perfection is?
Isn't the rational answer to find out for yourself with your mind open to all possibilities? The same question you ask of believers?
I believe all sides can do well with the questions they ask of the other parties.
And I say superior because Human beings have the most impact on the planet relative to the other animals. Animals do their thang but they leave the
Earth as the Earth and have shown to be part of the cycle of life without having a resounding detrimental effect to it, with the exception of
