Is the Universe made for life? Spoiler: NO!

Nope, the Universe is less than inhospitable: it is outright dangerous, killing every living thing it can. The fact that life evolved in spite of the murderous nature of the Universe tells us something about evolution and life in general, but it does not tell us that the Universe “was made” for life.

Throughout the Universe life exists only in small patches of space and time. On Earth we can only exist on the Earth crust and life exists for about 4 billion years now, just a bit of time compared tot he age of the Universe of 13.4 billion years.

Life exists only in a couple of places where the conditions are just right. Compare living vs non-living matter and you get a percentage way too low to even consider the fact that Universe allows life to exist. We exist in spite of the Universe.
