The phrase 'mostly empty' doesn't, in all honesty, do it justice; so let me help you out there with some imagination on *just* how empty the universe is, and *just* how hostile the universe is: - The 'habitable' proportion of the universe (ie, where we can live) is just 1 x 10^-65 of the universe; that's 1 divided by 10 followed by 64 zeros - a number so small that we don't have a name for it! - The average density of matter throughout all but a minute proportion of the universe is equivalent to that of 6 specks of dust in an otherwise empty Grand Central Station! - Even the 'habitable'' proportion is mostly empty space, in that if an atom's nucleus were to be increased to the size of the Sun then the innermost electron shell would be at a distance 4 times further away than Pluto, with nothing between it and the nucleus! - On the Earth itself, there are several billion species of life, all but a few hundred of which would kill us either quickly or slowly! - And in the overwhelming majority of the Universe, we would either burn, freeze, suffocate or explode within 5 seconds of exposure! So, a 'loving god' made this place for us, and the 'evidence for god' is in his creation and all around us!? If that's the best evidence, then he is either careless, hates us, or plain doesn't exist!
