- The earth is the perfect distance from the sun. Any closer we would burn, any farther, we would freeze.
- The earth is the perfect distance from the moon. Any closer and the tides would flood the earth.
- The unstable matter that makes our atmosphere habitable. Humans inhale oxygen that plants generate and exhale carbon dioxide that plants need to live.

The Bible speaks on the difficulties an unbeliever will have understanding the word of God. Are we understanding and long suffering with them as they grow in understanding?
1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV): The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
While the challenge an unbeliever will face through their conversion is understood, it is not a pass or excuse for their inaction. God believes He has provided enough evidence for us to be able to conclude that the world did not end up this way by chance.
Romans 1:18-20 (ESV): For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
There is enough evidence for anyone to start the quest for truth. There is enough information for an unbeliever to start to understand something greater than luck is at hand. The role of Christians is to be ready to help build a foundation of truth in love for Jesus Christ. Once that foundation is built, all questions will not be answered, but there is an element of faith that cannot be overlooked. There is enough evidence to understand God exists, but that does not mean all information will be made available.
Hebrews 11:6 (ESV): And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
1 Peter 1:8 (NIV): Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
