I subscribe to the first postulate because Life is far to complex to arise spontaneously.
This is the verdict of mathematics given the size and age of the Universe.
The idea aliens exist is held mostly by Atheist materialists who believe in Evolution and spontaneous generation/ abiogenesis.
IMO those are archaic fallacies that originated in times of ignorance to how complex life is.
In short the idea of ‘a simple cell’ is a complete myth.
There is no such thing.
We know this now due to scientific advances in biology and tech.
The Multiverse theory is primarily an attempt to rescue materialism from the mathematical absurdity of their claim Life arose spontaneously *even once* in the universe.

New Zealand is a Commonwealth Nation.
We enjoy the fruits of being a society with British roots.
Since Queen Elizibeth’s recent death, opportunity has not been lost for all the Marxist… anti-British imperialism toxic delusions to bubble up.
Fools sit in front of their Laptops… fancy coffee at their side…. griping about it being so tuff having to go to work for a living!
They look at the Queen in her palace and make out that she, and the Commonwealth she ruled is to blame for them having to work at some 9 to 5.
Filled with envy, to them the Queen represents not Law and Order… not civilisation but greed… and what their feeble minds conceive as the ‘horrible Capitalist system of oppression’.
Eat the Rich!
What is the alternative?
Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and Bill Gates have a plan.
If only we had a Working Class Party in power!
One that Nationalized all property and distributed things equally to all!
Wow! What a Dream…. There would be no more poverty, no more wealth disparity, and I would not have to work anymore!
You will own nothing… and be happy.
It’s too easy to gripe about having to work to live, and participate in society.
How often I myself complain about having so little time to do important things because I must instead work to pay my bills and feed my family, yet when I read memes/screen shots like this one at the top of this post it snaps me out of my self-pity.
When I hear other people complaining I remember that in a free society, life is mostly about choices.
We cannot justly bleat about having it tuff when the chief cause of our lot in life is because we our selves are in a habit of making a lot of foolish ones.
Having lived in the most affluent parts of Western civilisation few of us can say we are not ultimately the authors of our own predicaments.
We could have made smarter choices.
We are victims only of our own devise!
This is called self responsibility.
And why do you think we should lead a life of leisure?
It turns out that is not a Fulfilling life.
Being a productive member of society is honorable.
Working to provide for yourself, your family, and being able to give to charity is honorable.
Self-reliance is Freedom.
Sloth is a vice.
Working is a Christian virtue and associated with Honest living… and clean wealth.
‘Reaping what we sow’ is a parable of Justice.
And when combined with other virtues like thrift, sobriety, etc leads to well deserved prosperity.
Practice virtue and You just may exceed your less-conscientious peers in affluence… if that is what you deem to be most desirable.
Yet if they practice better virtue than you do… don’t complain if they can retire ten years earlier than you can!
Freedom makes wealth disparity possible.
Too much spare time can be a trap.
‘Idle hands are the Devils playground’ is more than mere platitude.
Sloth and poverty… sloth and criminality travel together.
These are Social statistical facts.
And I know this from personal experience.
Working ought to teach us to appreciate things… and what a lot of things we have!
Mind boggling stuff and inconceivable abundance compared to virtually all who have gone before us!
We live better than the Kings of old.
75% of the garbage we buy we don’t even need!
Need I carry on?
Again we wallow in useless trinkets… by our own folly.
‘Things’ apparently come so easily to us that they loose their shine.
Mountains of trash heaps are filled with discarded treasures for which we lost appreciation.
We have it soooo tuff!
When we contemplate all this it is staggering to understand that so many people have no apprehension of how Good they have had it under Queen Elizabeth the 2nd.
How could they be so easily led to despise her?
Note to self: have gratitude for the quality of life I have enjoyed.
Gratitude to God.
Gratitude to all the Great Men and Woman that worked, bled and died for Freedom and Justice.
Appreciation is shamefully lacking among our people which allows the destroyers and enemies of Freedom and justice to grow more powerful by the hour.
The Sun is setting in the West.
Though far from perfect, still the Commonwealth has been one of the most blessed portions of the world to be born into!
The Poorer Nations envy us.
So many ignorant fools don’t know how lucky they are.
Why is the working man’s life so despised by many?
They simply don’t appreciate the greatness of our society and how good the working class has it.
And Our Learning institutions and media have been hijacked by subversive Commy losers who hate the prosperity of the West have been whispering discontent into working peoples ears.
Undermining our civilisation… seeking it’s overthrow.
What is ironic is that the worst attributes about our current system… the most enslaving component… is not the Capitalist portion, but the Socialist element!
That is heavy taxation… and yet it is the same Socialist ingrates who complain about working who vote for heavy Taxing Political parties!
They literally vote for the lash upon their own backs.
And it is these same Socialists in power who cozy up to the very worst Corporate Plutocrats to whom they redistribute wealth from the poor to these mega-rich… via Taxation and Political favours!
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
None of that is Capitalism.
If you want to have a better life… be more virtuous… make better choices.
And for goodness sake do not beg for More Government… Less Freedom.
That’s Slavery… and it is ready and waiting in the wings.
RIP Good Queen Elizabeth 2.
I am a Libertarian, and hope one day New Zealand becomes a Free Republic, yet this ideal does not prevent me from extolling the virtues of the Commonwealth as they have been.
New Zealand has been facing a constitutional crisis and their are Evil factions who would love to make New Zealand a Socialist Republic. I oppose such ambition with my whole heart and would choose to remain a commonwealth nation as far more preferable than that!
Yet as Britain herself sinks into the socialist abyss, the Bulwark she represents against our slide into socialist tyranny is crumbling.
We Libertarians must not slumber but propagate a love of Liberty amongst our countrymen.
We are working against Gargantuan engines of propaganda that are at full steam lobotomising the New Zealand population… we must appeal to Heaven….

Snippet of John Trumbull’s Declaration of Independence.
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND THE DEBATE OVER SLAVERY
When Thomas Jefferson included a passage attacking slavery in his draft of the Declaration of Independence it initiated the most intense debate among the delegates gathered at Philadelphia in the spring and early summer of 1776. Jefferson’s passage on slavery was the most important section removed from the final document. It was replaced with a more ambiguous passage about King George’s incitement of “domestic insurrections among us.” Decades later Jefferson blamed the removal of the passage on delegates from South Carolina and Georgia and Northern delegates who represented merchants who were at the time actively involved in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Jefferson’s original passage on slavery appears below.
‘…He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where Men should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he has obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed again the Liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another….’
