If there was no sun, there would be no life. It’s amazing how it evolved to where it is now. Sitting there in the sky, 93 million miles away from us. If it was a little closer, we would all die. If it was further away, we would all die; along with everything else. How did it evolve to position itself in just the right place? It's amazing.

- The suns distance from the Earth (and the other planets) is random. In our solar system 2 planets are too close to the sun for life, and 5 planets are too far away from the sun for life. Other solar systems in the universe will have 0 planets at the right distance from their star for life. But with so many stars and planets in the universe some planets will by chance be positioned just right.
Think of playing the lottery — the chance that you will win the lottery is very low, however, because so many people play the lottery the chance that someone, somewhere will win is very high.
- The sun does not “evolve” the same way that life evolves; its “evolution” is not covered by the Theory of Evolution. The use of the word evolution in the context of the sun or galaxies simply means development, formation or growth.
- Remember, life will always find itself on a planet that can support life. Planets that can’t support life, can’t support life and therefore will have no life on them.
