....he does argue quite well for the uniqueness of The Earth, and the compelling conclusion that we must be here for a reason.
Does he argue that other planets, like Jupiter, are therefore not here for a reason?

According to his arguments, the other planets in our Solar System are there for the Earth's benefit. I can't remember all the details from the video but Jupiter helps to protect The Earth.

Well, there are millions of planets orbiting other stars, outside our solar system, outside our galaxy, even. It seems a stretch to say those extra-solar planets are there to help Earth.

Jupiter helps pull some of the dangerous comets, meterors, and asteroids away from earth.

I don't believe Hugh Ross was claiming every planet in the Universe was beneficial to Earth, but the ones in our solar system maybe, i.e as far as Pluto

I wonder whether or how Papist and xariskai have modified their views since the LIGO experiments detected gravitational waves starting a couple of years ago (I say this as someone who knows nothing about physics).
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.
