The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery is an intelligent design theorist book and documentary which argues that the earth contains a rare and finely-tuned array of factors which makes Earth suitable for complex life.[1]

The proposal that first life came about through natural processes has not fared well in recent times. The prominent origin of life researcher Stanley Miller said the origin of life problem was more difficult than he or anyone else had imagined.[2] Due to the necessity of an intelligent agent and the natural forces that a naturalistic origin of life faces, it is impossible for life to have arisen naturally (see: Origin of life).[3][4]

The book was written in 2004 by Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards.

Biblical creationists and the issue of intelligent life on other planets

Biblical creation organizations argue that the biblical and scientific evidence suggests that God did not create intelligent life on other planets nor did it naturally arise through macroevolution.[5]
