    That is possible, but, difficult to ascertain. The runaway greenhouse effect on venus happened very rapidly after it formed. On early earth, vulcanism and successive ice ages moderated this effect.

    this quote should be modified, you can't possibly relate this quote to intelligent life and the creation of the universe, we know whats outside of our planet, we comprehend that things exist, but why they exist is what lies beyond our way of thinking, hence the creation of the universe
