Speaking of regularly spaced circles, I observed something similar in southern Utah from a helicopter in 2019 (see the photo at the top).
In considering fine-tuning, physicists assume that the constants and initial conditions (and possibly the physical laws) could have been different.
A planet needs more than location in a habitable zone. It needs the right ingredients, and salt has a surprising role.
The extent of habitable space within all space can serve as a determinant of the plausibility of naturalism vs intelligent design.
It’s intriguing that life as we know it depends on a seemingly un-natural distribution of minerals.
