What would a non designed world look like? Absolute nothingness? You probably can't even concieve of what a non designed universe world be like, so how can you compare this world to it? You see a thing exists and by that fact alone think it must be designed. If pi was 4.863, it would be just as amazing. If space-time was extremely simple you would marvel at such sublime straightforwardness. When something seems unnecessary (appendix, heh) or cruel (endless death from non human causes) it can be explained away as humans lacking understanding but God having a plan.

And in reference to your other post, why would theism be required to see the beauty in the world? Plenty of atheists don't take life or its positives for granted precisely because they feel they will only exist for a limited time.

You've become a lot more like tanoomba as the board has turned on you. Perhaps this is a natural consequence of constant negative input.
Nothing ascribed to omnipotence is even remotely impressive, let alone miraculous. It only become so impressive if attributed to something of limited means and then there is nothing more miraculous than if it is all a random accident.

Can God create a universe so perfect that even he must have just made it through random dumb luck?

Sure, why not? That seems to me to fall into the category of "limited means," if he "must have relied on random dumb luck." I don't see how or why that mechanism of creation would render the universe anymore perfect than alternatives though, nor do I see how the current universe should be considered perfect. Yeah it works, but what do we have to compare into to. It is miraculous if the product of happenstance, and expected if designed as it is by an omnipotent being.

Jasker Jasker how you been man?
Good thanks for asking. Finally have had something to do with WoW classic and my job.

Quite embarrassed about this thread honestly, some fucked up shit has happened to me since around 2014 but Im uncertain if posting here was the best route to vent struggles heh. Also went through some times on this board where it didn't even feel like me when I was posting. But no looking back now /shrug

the best course of action at this point is to embrace the embarrassment and become a parody of yourself. play it up. become a character. entertain yourself, entertain us.

whether you're stuck in mundane life of a bored young American man, or you're stuck at the center of some cosmic scale conspiracy involving eternities of experimentation, you're stuck either way. so you may as well make the most of it.

I've been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to think of what to post without sounding sarcastic, failed, then had an acute existential crisis about it.
Anyways, you're a badass Jasker Jasker
