The fact that you and I are alive, and life has existed, uninterrupted, for 3.8 Billion years is all the evidence I or any rational person needs to conclude, the obvious, that Nature, on balance, tends towards life.
How is that not obvious to you?
Oh yeah, not rational.

If it tended more towards death and chaos, than life and cosmos wouldn't exist. Yes it's that simple.
"For every one billion particles of antimatter there were one billion and one particles of matter. And when the mutual annihilation was complete, one billionth remained - and that's our present universe." - Albert Einstein

Yet life exists, and has existed for 3.8Billion years, despite the all the destructive forces at work. Creative forces outweigh the destructive forces, otherwise there would be no matter.
"When scientists use the word God, they usually mean the God of Order. For example, one of the most important revelations in Einstein’s early childhood took place when he read his first books on science. He immediately realized that most of what he had been taught about religion could not possibly be true. Throughout his career, however, he clung to the belief that a mysterious, divine Order existed in the universe."
