Maybe time to dust off the ID idea that Earth is fine-tuned for space discovery?
It should also be considered that in his book Der Teil und das Ganze, Werner Heisenberg expresses his own and also Niels Bohrs’ doubt that random mutations could have produced any of the complex biological systems… Bohr adds that while natural selection obviously occurs it is the idea that new species come about by random changes, which is very hard to imagine, even if this is the only way science can explain it.
Fine-tuning of the universe is one of those concepts that can pass every possible evidence test and still be rejected because it is just not supposed to be true. No matter how foolish the arguments against it are, they will always appear preferable. If the situation results in confusion, well, confusion is clarity.
Earth is actually in a favored position for space exploration
Researchers: “”Individuals who can unconsciously predict complex patterns, an ability called implicit pattern learning, are likely to hold stronger beliefs that there is a god who creates patterns of events in the universe, according to neuroscientists at Georgetown University.”
At ENST: “Sure enough, after Darwinists discovered the article, they succeeded in obtaining a “disclaimer” from the journal’s editors, who proclaimed their bias against ID. But the disclaimer actually made publication of the article all the more significant.”
With Frank Tipler, he was the author of The Anthropic Cosmological Principle (1988), according to which: the existence of intelligent observers determines the fundamental structure of the Universe.
Classics from William Lane Craig’s shop: The reasons why fine-tuning of the universe isn’t a question of whether? but how? And why?
Fine-tuning in biology shouldn’t be surprising. Why should biology be different from the rest of the universe?
Cold Spring Harbor: “The researchers discovered that the shape of trabeculae affects the performance of the heart, suggesting a potential link to heart disease. ” Is this true only of human hearts? What about ancient ones?
The proponents of chance origins tend to make it look less likely all the time.
Knight: The multiverse is not pure nonsense, it is theoretically possible.But even if there were a multiverse, the generator that makes the universes itself would require fine-tuning, so the multiverse doesn’t get rid of the problem. And, as Lightman indicates, we have no independent experimental evidence for the existence of the multiverse in any case.
Okay but, seriously, if this data is correct, how would we know the extinction WASN’T fine-tuned?
At ScienceDaily: “It’s like an engine mechanic who has a set of tools at his disposal,” Dr. Sung said. “The tool he uses depends on the issue that needs to be repaired. In like fashion, each DNA repair tool in our cells is designed to repair a distinctive type of break in our DNA.”
Hmm. Either cells are smarter than we think or some sort of fine-tuning underlies biology.
