Nicely put together video ... Can't believe I only just came across it!
Now to address the OP.
I have a major beef with this so called "fine tuning" of the universe.
There are too many assumptions with this argument ... The biggest is the assumption that a form of life could not exist with different universal
Humans so like to be special don't they ...
So lets look at the options with the universe and fine tuning:
MULTIVERSE - If there is infinite universes, as the theory of a multiverse suggests then the idea of an intelligently fine tuned universe is moot.
This universe has a 100% chance of existence within an infinite amount of universes. No special treatment here. This argument does not contradict the
idea of a creative force.
ONE UNIVERSE - The argument that the universe is fines tuned to life as we know is deliberately approaching the idea from the wrong way around so to
fit the idea of an intelligent creator.
Lets flip around to the way it should be - Life, as we know it, is fine tuned to be able to exist in this universe.
Much more appropriate.
If the universal conditions were different then it can only be argued that a different form of life could exist in those conditions.
Life, aah, finds a way.
The universe came first and then life came into the universe, so, logically, the argument must be approached from this perspective.
This argument does not contradict the idea of a creative force but challenges the idea of an intelligent creator.
ONE UNIVERSE: CYCLIC - As already discussed - infinite ... no beginning, no end, no creator. Does not contradict the idea of a creative force. See
"One Universe" for details on argument against "fine tuning".
As it is plain to see, there is no need to use the idea of an intelligent creator to explain the existence of the universe.
