That is not scientific- "that is the hand we were dealt" Also the research shows if we didn't have a large moon we wouldn't be here to make any observations.
The point is Occam's razor would favor a scenario involving one designed universe, ie designed for scientific discovery, over a universe cobbled together via multiple chance collisions, coupled with multiple chance events, coupled with multiple atomic accidents.
It was not intended to be scientific, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just a figure of speech. There is speculation as to the importance of the earth having a large moon, but there is no way to test these ideas even if they make good sense.
The point is we didn't need perfect solar eclipses to live. We diid need them for scientific discovery and therefore a better understanding of our universe.
Ah yes OccamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s razor, more of a philosophy than a general rule of science, it is easy countered by real life examples of Ã¢â‚¬Å“things are not always what they seemÃ¢â‚¬Â.
OccamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s razor could also be used to counter your argument thus Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Ã¢â‚¬Å“A vast random universe that evolves intelligent life in one small part is far simpler to imagine that a single entity creating the same from scratchÃ¢â‚¬Â.
We used what phenomena was available to us to discover what is discoverable, consider how human history would have been different if Venus had a moon similar to our own (that would mean it would be visible with the naked eye)!
