The Universe doesn't care about Humans

A friend of mine once said that he believed the Universe was created for the purpose of human curiosity. In other words, if we weren't here then the Universe would cease to be. He's certainly not the only person to think this way and it's something that I simply can't agree with.

The origin of this belief screams creationism where everything is only 6000 years old. If this were true, that the Universe was only 6000 years old and that humans were only around for that long, then maybe the Universe would of been created solely for us but there's evidence that suggest that the Universe is much older than that.

If we look at our planet's history, you'll find that the Universe is more than 6000 years old and life thrived before the introduction of humans which suggests that the Universe existed prior to our existence, or awareness, of it. 

We we could possibly say, however, is that the Universe only exist to us while we're alive as its the only time that we are aware of it. 
The Universe existed before humans and it will continue to do so after we're all gone.
