The popular Portuguese-language ID blog sent us this YouTube vid, explaining the situation.
It turns out that biological fine-tuning goes to the very extremes of physics. In this lecture, William Bialek shows that eyes can detect individual photons, and a number of other phenomena where biology operates on the very edge of what is possible in physics. View Video Here
