I had a discussion with a business acquaintance a while back in which he said that the Earth has the most nearly circular orbit of all the Sun's planets, and that this is obvious proof that the Solar System was Intelligently Designed (TM) just for us. He got a little defensive when I pointed out that Venus and Neptune both have more nearly circular orbits than us, and don't appear to be all that life-friendly. I'd like to find out who told him that - it's rather odd to preach information that's that easily falsified.
