If we did that at least 90% of the world's population would be dead within
a year. Planet Earth simply cannot keep 7 billion people alive with 17'th
century technology, much less give them a living standard that wasn't full
of sewage and was just plane gruesome. We're long past the point of turning
back, the path is set.

Exactly, and that's why the God hypothesis is so utterly useless; if
explaining why life exists is hard explaining why God exists is harder.
