As I see it, God and religion is a convenient way of explaining our existance. Sure it was coincidence that life was "sparked" on earth. If it had never happened, we wouldn`t be here to be trying to figure it out. Just look at our situation. Earth contains all the necessary elements, carbon and oxygen, and all the proper balances of elements to create and sustain life. Not only that, our distance from the sun is perfect for lifeforms as we know them. Even if there are billions of other stars with even more planets orbiting them, the probability that there is a planet with all the necessary elements, in the proper balance, and containing a breathable atmosphere that is a perfect distance from it`s own star is unlikely. I`m not saying that it`s impossible. However, there is an even greater unlikelyhood that any life out there would have the intelligence that we have on earth to discover electromagnetics to the extent of creating a form of communication. It just isn`t logical to me that something we call God just created us.
