NO. The question does not require you answer under the assumption that things are the way they are now, example; If you believe it is impossible for humans to exist without God, then your answer would be that planet earth would be different because humans wouldn't exist.
That's assuming I believe in a God ... who is also creator of the universe.
But "most people" probably believe this.
