Theists speak of a "privileged planet" and ignore the volatile planet that is designed with death. Of all species that have existed on Earth, 99.9 percent are now extinct. Many of them perished in five cataclysmic events. The Earth can go from a "privileged" planet to a dangerous planet in its history and in its future. Death is part of the "design". Humans have been around for just 200,000 years and should keep in mind its frailty on this rare and at times volatile earth.
