In principle, the conjoining of the many Rare Earth factors could overwhelm the available probabilistic resources and serve as evidence for Earth’s design.
The ground under your feet is literally moving. The continents are drifting apart near an average rate of one inch per year.
The basic thesis of TPP is that the best places for intelligent observers are also the best places for observing.
