It's the other way around, actually! The immensity of the universe and the rarity of life in it causes us to think about the reasons why our planet seems to be such a brilliant jewel of beauty and exquisitely balanced life. Even the fact that humans have brains capable of asking questions about meaning directs us to the intelligence involved in all of that. An unthinking, uncaring universe that was merely the result of blind chance could never give rise to what we see on Earth and in ourselves.
George Macdonald (1824 – 1905 whose writings meant so much to former atheist C.S. Lewis) showed what the question really is: “The question between matter and spirit is which was first and caused the other things or thoughts: whether things without thought caused thought, or thought without things caused things.” Unspoken Sermons p 190
If there is no spiritual aspect to life and the universe, and to us, then here is what blind chance results in:
Blind chance alone
gives rise to flesh?
Then rainbow portends drought ahead.
The news of gale,
earthquake and fire,
is but its death throe twitch.
And man at war
is merely flesh,
barging through the dark.
That is the nihilistic consequence of life being meaningless, yet only those devoid of the spirit can be so gloomy. Those who appreciate something of the Spirit of God at work in creating this universe for His glory, and humanity as being made in His image and likeness discover the joy of meaning the Creator gives. On Day One, God created light in His dark universe. Then He started creating order out of chaos, and filled that which was empty. Empty humans have not seen the light of God in His glorious universe.
