Anthrocentric Or Anthropocentric?

Hi Mario,

I'm not sure which is correct (anthrocentric or anthropocentric - such as anthropomorphic). Just a little trivia.

Regarding your response, I think it cuts to the differences in our view. In my view the evolution of intelligence is much further along the purpose of 'all of this' than just quarks. If intelligence was not a feasibility, then in my view this universe would never have occurred.

Thus, I think that there being intelligence on a particular planet is a valuable commodity to the Lifeforce of the universe, and I'm willing to believe that some 'effort' is put in to preserve it and enrich it.

I'm not saying that the destruction of intelligent societies do not occur in the universe (or even Multiverse), but it seems to me that unless the universe has no purpose there must be some intervention by this Lifeforce to continually push the evolution of intelligence forward. This 'push' may be probablistic (i.e., only some fraction actually make it and succeed at fulfilling a divine will), but I believe there are 'laws' which require this to occur.

So, I think earth's intelligence being accidentally extinguished by an asteroid is possible, but only if it is God's will for that tragedy to occur. God's will may require that every intelligent society to continue on, or it may require some societies to continue on, or it may require at least a few societies to continue on, but I believe that God's will is directly related to the evolution of intelligence and its continued evolution and existence.

Warm regards, Harv
