The Argument for God from the Fine-Tuning of the Universe

Argument for God from Fine-tuning of the universe

We are alive and we continue to live because our universe is delicately balanced to allow it. The fine-tuning of the universe provides a very compelling case for the existence of God. The argument for God from the fine-tuning of the universe has multiple layers – both from the fine-tuning of any possible life in…

Comprehensive List of Factors of Fine-Tuning for Intelligent Life in the Universe

Fine-tuning for intelligent life

The universe demonstrates a level of fine-tuning that is absolutely astonishing. As a matter is a mere happenstance, it is extremely implausible. The conditions under which any life may exist in the universe requires extreme precision. The conditions under which intelligence physical life may exist in the universe requires even more precision. Here, I detail…

The number of fine-tuning factors that scientists have discovered so far is growing. The more we discover nature, the more improbable nature appears to be. Here, I detail the fine-tuning factors for life in the universe as compiled by astronomer, Hugh Ross, in his monumental work, Why the Universe Is the Way It Is. This…

Stephen Hawking’s Fishbowl

Stephen Hawking

In September 2010, Stephen Hawking, the icon of modern science, made headlines with his new book, The Grand Design. The title is quite ironic, as it alludes to design and intention while arguing for an impersonal chance beginning of the universe. Interestingly, Hawking holds to the notion that the universe was an inevitable natural reality…

The Universe Brimming With Design and Fine-Tuning

For thousands of years, people have looked up at the night sky in awe and amazement. It was once thought that supernatural intervention was the driving force behind the mechanisms of the universe. While the many presumptions of the ancients have been demythologized by scientific inquiry as more of the natural reality is understood, that…
