## Main Question or Discussion Point

The word 'cosmos' is defined as an orderly harmonious systematic universe. There are some people who actually think that disorder, randomness and chaos is a better description of the Universe, but I disagree. For the most part the Universe exhibits a very high degree of order, harmony and regularity.

A poster said: ""Highly ordered"? More like "hardly ordered"! You see real order only on very specific scales. Once you get larger than galaxies, any semblance of "order" vanishes. Going down, you get intermittent order but mostly jumbled messes. You get pockets of order that are indistinguishable from the spontaneous order that are predicted by chaotic laws."

What do you think about this comment? Additionally, would you agree that the Universe exhibits a high degree of order, harmony and regularity? If so why? If not why?
