The earth rotates on its axis at one thousand miles an hour; if it did so at one hundred miles an hour, our days and nights would be ten times as long as they are now and the hot sun would have burn up our vegetation during each long day while in the long night, any surviving sprout would freeze.
The slant of the earth, tilted at an angle of 23 degrees give us our season. If it had not been so tilted, vapors from the ocean would move north and south pilling up for us continents of ice.
If our moon were, say, only 50 thousand miles away instead of its actual distance, our tides would be so enormous that twice a day, all continents would be submerged and even the mountains would be eroded away.
If the crust of the earth had been only ten feet thicker, there would have been no oxygen without which human and animal life would have perished. Had our oceans been a few feet deeper, carbon dioxide and oxygen would have been absorbed and no vegetable life could have existed.
If our atmosphere had been thinner, some of the meteors, now burned in space by the million every day would be striking all parts of the earth, starting fire everywhere.
Again, the sun has a surface temperature of 12,000 degrees Fahrenheit and our earth is just away so that this ‘eternal fire’ warms us just enough and not too much.
If the sun gave off only half of its present radiation, we would freeze and if it gave half as much more, we would roast.
