The earth is not the first or the largest in the solar system, but it is the place life exists. As far as humans are concerned, it is the only place.
Why the earth can support life when Jupiter, Mercury and the rest cannot? Location and the right stuff.
Earth is at the right distance from the Sun.It is tilted at the correct angle. It has the right amount of oxygen. Just the right gravity and the right atmospheric pressure.
And like our mother Earth, we will do well in whatever we set to do if we have the right stuff. We don't have to be the first, the biggest or the smartest to be the best. All we need is the right amount of whatever is needed to succeed.
Don't you guys agree?
