The Fine Tuning of the Universe: Another Reason to Believe in God
The more scientists study the universe, the more they discover that conditions in the universe appear to have been extremely fine-tuned (designed) to permit life. Scientists call this apparent “fine-tuning” of the universe the “Anthropic Principle.”
The word anthropic comes from the Greek word anthropos which means “human” or “man.” So the term “Anthropic Principle” is just a fancy name to describe the numerous highly improbable environmental conditions that exist in the universe that make life possible.
Numerous conditions have been identified that have to have just the right values (in other words, they need to be “tuned” to just the right degree) for any kind of conceivable physical life to exist in the universe.
If any of these conditions were to change even a little, the universe would be hostile to life and incapable of supporting it. I’ll quickly mention a few of these conditions and then I’ll tell you why many scientists think they point to the existence of a designer.
