Indeed it is. yes, it would have its structure, just like how the jumbled bridge hand still has 13 cards with its particular numbers and suits. but the royal flush is a distinct and much more uncommon possibility than the jumbles. also, I see life as different from physical phenomena. it operates in a different way and has very different requirements. I see what you're saying. clearly, evolution wasn't a linear path, it branched out various ways until we happened to come about. I don't think that humans were destined to take the form that we did. You can clearly see evolution "trying out" different paths, notably in the cambrian explosion. I state that the universe was designed with the intention of the development of life. not necessarily us, though - there are vast numbers of species on earth, and exobiology is a big unknown. there could be aliens who are just as significant as sentient life. of all the possibilities of the universal structure that grew out of the big bang, ours is very notable. it seems to be that the large majority of potential universes would be inhospitable to any form of life as far as can be imagined. how could a hydrogen gas universe lead to more complex structures, when there's only hydrogen and maybe some helium? and how could a black hole universe lead to stable resources and complex structures? and I could go on like this. If the matter/antimatter collision happened differently, there may have been very small amounts of matter available, spread over a vast domain. you could just tweak something like atomic forces or electric forces slightly, and most results would give you a ridiculous universe that would not have stable planets with resources. a different vacuum could have totally different chemistry that may not be compatible with life. I don't see any reason why the universe HAD to turn out this way, out of all the other possibilites. but it did. stars are long lived, and as we've recently found out, often form planets. stellar fusion and novas create heavy elements that can combine and react. carbon works very well as a building block of life. As I see it, there are a huge number of possible iterations incompatible with any sort of life, and a much smaller number that are. the fact that we beat such long odds to get the royal flush hand suggests an intelligence to me.
