    The universe cares zilch about lifeforms like any of us in it. It did not "ready" itself for us.

    Look up a similar word: anthropocentricism, to learn about why there are people walking around on two legs who make up this BS.

    Wouldn't that be like theorising why the depression in the ground just happens to be the right shape for the puddle that forms in it? Who designed that hole so the puddle would not only form but fit in it perfectly?

    There is no evidence that the universe was created to support life. Rather, the evolution of life is shaped by the environment that exists. Humans have evolved to occupy a niche in the environment and, through their creativeness and engineering ability, have learnt to manipulate that environment. We cannot avoid that interference impacting on evolution.
