    Does it have to be? Special or not, it's done an alright job so far.

    it's special to us because it's OUR sun, but in the great scheme of burning balls of gas in space, it's amazingly normal

    While the sun may not be that special I've read where our solar system type is uncommon. Most exosolar planets found have a jupiter-like body much much closer to the sun, they theorize that only around 10% of stars that have planets like ours.

    If we were two% closer or father, I think life would adapt so that it could survive.

    I voted nay, but it is sort of special to us.

    Interesting how we would be able to adapt to our Earth with no atmosphere and boiled->evaporated oceans.

    The Sun is special, to whomever it is special to.

    That's the extent of it.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    But of course. Without it there would not be life on Earth. We are as yet to see another solar system which harbours a planet as our own. It could be argued that it is the whole of our solar system which is unique but it would not detract from our sun being special.
