How could an unintelligent, spontaneous "quantum function" anticipate, from a first cause, the conditions of life we enjoy today?
Your argument still amounts to "by accident", even as one that took an eternity and an infinite amount of failed "attempts" to become manifest.
That is one totally awesome
coincidence or cosmic "lottery" and it's an idea I'm not unwilling to consider, which strangely, fills me with
almost as much joy as the God-hypothesis, to consider deeply. It certainly has the OMG wow I'm in AWE factor to it that's for sure.
But can an unintelligent and uninformed quantum flux even after an eternity generate from an initial cause a cosmic structure, at all levels,
perfectly tuned for this life as it is? I suppose anything's possible, but could such a first cause anticipate
a future cause and embed in it
with intent a marker or sign that would be meaningful or significant only a self aware observer at a certain point in time and cosmic evolutionary
history? I don't think so. What am I talking about? (more to follow as the thread progresses).
Your argument isn't bad and represents really the only possible alternative (to intelligent design), and it's one which leads inexorably to the
strong anthropic principal
(see I'm even giving you tips as I go), but in light of
evidence I aim to bring forward, the strong anthropic principal
can be shown to be
because it attempts to utilize a type of paradox to render the "data" meaningless and of no significance whatsoever, and therefore
undermines itself for reasons that we'll be exploring as we go.
