How can we tell the difference the following two possibilities:
1) The universe was intentionally designed “just so” for our benefit.
2) The universe “just happened” this way, and here we are.
Your observation that the second possibility is really, really improbable is correct. But “improbable” is not the same as “impossible”. And no matter HOW improbable something is, if it is not impossible, then it is possible.
The assumption that a deity created all this is AT LEAST as cockamamie as the assumption that it just happened.
|I am simply saying this -- nothing else -- that "Doggone it ... this universe sure is suited nicely for life ... how did that happen? Is there maybe, maybe, maybe a possibility that maybe, maybe, maybe "someone" could have set the parameters that way? It seems silly to not even consider this possibility.|
You are more than welcome to consider the possibility. You will not be the first person to ever do so. LOTS of people consider the possibility EVERY DAY. No one is stopping you from considering the possibility. Heck, you are even welcome to formulate a scientific hypothesis and test it. Do THIS, however, and you WILL be the first to ever do so.
