What a Coincidence

For a change of pace, I thought I’d share one of my favorite evidences for “design” in the universe. 

Many planets have moons. For we passengers on planet Earth, we have only one. Earth and moon orbit the sun together–two bodies twirling around each other in a gravitational dance on a cosmic stage.

And of course the sun is millions of times bigger than our moon. And yet . . .

From earth, the sun and the moon appear to be almost exactly the same size. This is a function of the moon’s size and distance from earth. 

In a randomly formed universe, the moon could have been any size and any distance from earth. Yet here, on seemingly the only place in this incomprehensibly vast universe perfectly situated to support life, we see this from our vantage point when they line up . . .

What a coincidence.
