    Have you ever cooked pasta? And added the amount you think you need? And then a bit more for luck? And then it's WAY too much? That.

    There's an argument against theism based around this idea. It's called the "argument from scale".

    I don't think it's a successful argument, but it's an interesting idea that's quite intuitive in a naturalistic world-view.
