Michio Kaku And Richard Dawkins Explain The Purpose Of The Universe

Anyone who expresses a more definitive response to the question is saying access to knowledge not supported by empirical foundations. This remarkably persistent way of thinking, common to most religions and a few branches of philosophy, has failed badly in past efforts to grasp, and thereby predict the operations of the universe and our place within it.

To assert that the universe features a purpose implies the universe has intent. And intent implies a desired outcome. But who would do the desiring? And what would a desired outcome be? That carbon-based life is inevitable? Or that sentient primates are life's neurological pinnacle? Are answers to those questions even possible without expressing a profound bias of human sentiment? in fact, humans weren't around to ask these questions for 99.9999% of cosmic history. So if the aim of the universe was to form humans then the cosmos was embarrassingly inefficient about it.
