Did you pick your name because it's a combination of Rocket Science and Brain Surgery? I like that!
Just want to point out that evolutionary scientists generally agree with you that it's not accidental at all how things have worked out. Rather, they present the likelihood of slow, incremental (not accidental) change from Universal Stew of Nothing transformed bit by slow bit to Us Here Now. So, who cooked the stew in the first place? I can see why people (including some evolutionary scientists!) say, well, the only possible explanation is a supernatural Overseer. But who created the Overseer? If the argument is, "the Overseer is transcendent of time, has always been and always will be" then why would it not possible for the answer to that be that "the Universal Stew is transcendent of time, has always been and always will be"?
