No planets have been found which are like earth with regards to temperature, atmosphere and liquid water.

None have the capacity to sustain human or animal life except for bacteria that can exist in severe environments.

Pluto is not able to support human life although it is a common perception that Mars can survive if structures were built to endure colder temperatures and dust storms. It can possibly produce breathable air inside said structures. It is also thought that perhaps Mars could be formed to accommodate human life.

God created the earth for humans and animals so they will be nourished and kept alive.

Genesis 1:28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Earth is fine-tuned for life, meaning it has very special and unique properties that allow life to exist.

One of these is the galactic habitable zone. This means that earth’s location in the galaxy is “just right” to allow life to exist.

If earth were closer to the center of the Galaxy, then there would be too much radiation for life to exist. If earth were further from the center of the galaxy, then there would be insufficient heavy metals that are needed for life.

Also, earth is located between the spiral arms of the galaxy, where there is less harmful radiation. This also happens to be a region of the galaxy where there is less dust, meaning we can have a better view of the galaxy to do astronomical observations.

Another fine-tuning parameter is that earth is in the Circumstellar Habitable Zone . This means that earth is in the right part of the solar system to allow for liquid water to exist. If earth was closer to the sun then all the water would be in gas form. If earth was further from the sun then all the water would be frozen (ice). However, earth is just in the right place for liquid water.

My God is intelligent and knows what is good for all people!
