I have thought for a while, and used as an argument, that, at the cosmological level, any significant dicking around with the laws of nature would be evident, if not at our current level of understanding and observational capabilities, at some level well short of god-like. Obviously, this is yanked out of my rear end, but seems reasonable. I don't have a clue how this would apply to our evolutionary history, but I would guess it's likely. Anyone think the first is reasonable? Or any thoughts on the latter?

To 'guide' evolution from the beginning with us as the end result seems absurd. All that guiding, did it include the KT impact? Or the other mass extinctions? I would call that god going, oops, let me start over. Is he nudging molecules, physical law, or tigers? Any of the above? Why did it take so efing long, were all the near-us hominids trial runs?
