Was this Planet designed perfectly for us OR are we just the biological product of the planet?

The environment of this planet is the result of its distance from the sun, its size, and its chemical and biological composition. The earth has had different climates in the past. At one point in time there were little oxygen, and then it was almost frozen solid. During the age of dinosaurs, it was much hotter, and it was much colder (at least for areas near the north and south poles) during the last ice age that ended 13,000 years ago.
The planet is not designed by anyone. The planet just so happens to have the right stuff (including life forms) that helps it maintain an environment suitable for life. If photosynthetic organisms did not evolve, animals would not be able to evolve because animals need oxygen, and photosynthetic organisms such as bacteria, algae and plants are able to supply it. We are here because of a series of contingencies. If just some of these things failed to happen in the past, we would not be here. For example, if the dinosaurs were not wiped out by a giant meteor that struck the earth, our ancestors, the shrew-like mammals, would probably not be able to evolve beyond the shrew stage. If South America did not collide with North America, the climate in Africa may not have changed. We evolved on the African savanna, because the changing climate starting 5 million years ago dried up africa and turned many forests into savanna. The apes were running out of space, and some of them (our ancestors) were driven away from forests into the savanna. If our ancestors could not survive in the savanna, then we won't be here either.
In fact, monkeys and then apes evolved after Antarctica froze for the first time ever in the history of this planet, about 35 million years ago. Temperatures since then have been far below those during the age of dinosaurs. If global warming continues unchecked, and temperature reach the same high level as the age of dinosaurs, humans may not be able to survive except in the polar regions because the tropics are simply too hot to live for most of us.

Yep, Designed. Thats why those on the moon are watching and protecting us. I think they want answers to life that they cannot answer. So restart life and see what went wrong.

The word "design" cannot be used in connection with any planet. The solar system just "happened" - in accordance with very large-scale "laws of nature". No being or entity of any sort designed any part of space or the universe. It so happens that the Earth is in the "Goldilocks Zone" where life is possible, enough heat from the Sun, but not too much heat. We are indeed the product of about 3.5 billion years of evolution, as are all creatures on Earth in their present state.

That's like asking, "was this pothole designed perfectly for the 3.7 liters of rainwater that fill it, or is that just how much rainwater can fill this pothole?"

It's not perfect and probably not designed either.
It cannot sustain billions of automobiles, nor many billions of humans

A perfectly designed planet would not have STDs.

We're a product of evolution.
The planet is not perfect. Look at all the tundra and taiga that are too cold for us. I live in a desert where there isn't enough water. Some of my friends live where it's too hot.

The planet just happened to form as it did, then their was vegetation and life in the water, after some 600 million years, man came out of the chaos, so yea, we are just a biologic happening as result of the planet.
