If life evolved, how did the planets and solar system evolve? I mean, if through the omnipotent [sarcasm] Natural Selection has moved and shaped things over time, how did order come from chaotic matter swirling in the cosmos? Newton said:
Though these bodies may, indeed, persevere in their orbits by the mere laws of gravity, yet they could by no means have at first derived the regular position of the orbits themselves from those laws…[Thus] this most beautiful system of the sun, moon and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being.
