That astronomy was my favorite subject in school. Since I was 12 I was buying myself books about stars, space, planets.

We are talking about parts of the infinite space.

The Earth OTOH is very small in comparison, resembling little more than a lifeboat in a deeply inhospitable sea of vacuum and physical extremes instantly fatal to organic life. So, if God created the ‘world’ for the soul purpose of giving life to humanity, why all this other stuff?

D.
This other stuff is for many other children of God who live on different planets.
We(inhabitants of Earth) are not the only children of our God

English is my second language.

It wouldn't have enough atoms to generate the complexity needed for life. On the large end, the finite speed of light comes into play. It would take too long for information to pass from one spot in an organism to another.

Let me point out that there aren’t only three places in the spectrum of size, the two extreme ends and the exact middle. Apparently this hasn’t occured to you. You’re welcome.

I pointed it out to you Full Circle.
