← Francis Collins: Atheist Richard Dawkins Admits Universe's Fine-Tuning Difficult to Explain

Tony d's Avatar Jump to comment 21 by Tony d

This business of the fine tuning of the universe seems bizarre to me. It made me speculate that if a flea could reason. It might look at the stray dog on which it lived and think to itself that the sole purpose for the existence of the dog was to provide nourishment and a home for itself and its family.

How do you get from the observation that our form of life would not have come about if the constants in the universe were set at different value's.To the conclusion that therefor we are the purpose of the universe?

Oh yer, with faith anything is possible.

This fine tuning argument honestly seems so weak to me.Its making me wonder if i'm missing something about it.
