Do we live in a Universe that has been finely-tuned to allow for our existence? Have you ever heard of the “fine tuning argument”?
Here’s how Wikipedia describes the concept of a “Fine-Tuned Universe”:
The fine-tuned Universe is the proposition that the conditions that allow life in the Universe can only occur when certain universal fundamental physical constants lie within a very narrow range, so that if any of several fundamental constants were only slightly different, the Universe would be unlikely to be conducive to the establishment and development of matter, astronomical structures, elemental diversity, or life as it is understood.
If your’e not familiar with the “argument for fine tuning”, here is a terrific video created by Dr. William Lane Craig and the folks over at Reasonable Faith.
And while you’re in the mood, take a look at these books by Astrophysicist Dr. Hugh Ross:
Improbable Planet: How Earth Became Humanity’s Home
Why the Universe Is the Way It Is
