You would have a point if we had explored thousands of planets similar to the earth and found no life. As it is, we have a set of one which is worthless for trying to get a handle on the probability of life occurring elsewhere. It may be common, rare, or unique. The only thing we know for sure is that it happened on the earth.
If we haven't figured it out yet, then 'god dun it', because we don't have the answer.
If we have figured it out, then 'god dun it', because it's too complicated to understand, and that makes it easier to deal with.
Who said it was an accident?
I am an atheist, but I would never state unequivocally that there is no creator. I simply do not believe in the gods that man has created to explain this incredible universe, and know of no evidence for a conscious purposeful creator. So was/is there a creator? I have no idea. At best, there seems to be a force (not sure that is the right term) in the universe that is counter or actually makes use of entropy to produce matter in an organized form (matter is nothing more than energy, by the way (see Einstein)). The human brain is the most complex matter we know of. One little cubic millimetre of human brain tissue has more connections in it that there are stars in the Milky Way. Pretty cool! Is this creative force conscious? I have no idea. All I can say is that it has taken the universe about 14.7 billion years to produce us, and I am in awe at what had to take place for us to be here. Massive stars had to explode to produce heavier elements necessary for life. Gravity working over vast amounts of time had to bring matter together in concentration great enough and diverse enough for us to exist. Was it planned or an accident? I have no idea and will probably never know, but it is a lot of fun learning and making guesses. I think it would be the absolute worst human tragedy if we allow religion or politics, or any man-made concept to cause us to destroy ourselves.

Here in California it’s illegal to take your kid to a therapist if they have gender confusion.
It is only illegal for the therapist to try to convince the kid to stay with his/her DNA based gender. If the therapist supports the gender switch, it is encouraged.
Unfortunately, the vast majority sort this gender confusion out by their mid 20's and live successfully as their DNA gender.
I though "conversion therapy" was illegal.
Anyone can go to a therapist.

Nothing natural about needing unnatural hormones to slow down your body from becoming the person you were born to be.

I cannot stand the liberal media and their self righteous indignation.

Nailed it! The Federal government should only have power over things specifically enumerated in the constitution. But judicial activism is waaaay easier than the amendment process.

I was born and grew 5 feet tall but I believe I’m actually 8 feet tall. People who tell me that I’m actually 5 feet tall are bigots and are psychologically damaging me. We need to pass laws to force everyone to participate in my delusions. I also think it’s time to file a lawsuit against the NBA for refusing the consider me to play on one of their teams.
There's not $100k+ in unearned wealth in that...so no...probably not...

Christ operated as the spiritual physician to help people stop their sinful ways. He had compassion for them and spent time with them, but that doesn’t mean he taught them to embrace sin. Just as the woman who was caught in adultery, Jesus had compassion on her and forgave her, but then charged her to go and sin no more.

That right there pretty much sums up the LGBT argument: agree with us or else!
Every day Islam slaughters innocent men, women, and children simply because they’re different or have a different opinion. I wonder if this woman ever feels outrage over that? Maybe she should get her own house in order before running around demanding it from others.

We had an illegal Mexican shoot and kill a couple of cops here in California recently. Ramos lives in a bubble and any thought outside that bubble is incomprehensible to him.
