It’s been a while since I posted something here.
As you may know, the fine tuning argument is one of the most famous arguments Christian apologists use when debating atheists about the existence of God, but I found that there is a BIG flaw with it.
I bet that many people here are familiar with the writings of Victor Stenger. I read them some weeks ago and I am planning to refute them together with some friends. One of my them has a degree in physics and in philosophy, another one has an incredible knowledge of Bayes Theorem, another one has some amazing knowledge of cosmology and the other one knows a lot about physics and has done some work in debunking materialism. The other ones have a great knowledge of the New Testament, which will be useful when we read other books against the historical Jesus in the future. So, summarising, I have some great people with me.
Well, going to the fine-tuning argument, the problem I have with it is that the universe, according to Victor Stenger, is not “designed for us”. Richard Carrier and Neil deGrasse Tyson think the exact same thing and so do many people on the internet. Carrier even said that if you don’t talk about this, you are hiding information and you are a liar (he always says this kind of things, so I am not surprised).
What do they say? That most regions in the universe are extremely hostile to life and would instantly destroy it. I remember that a website said that the cosmos is fine tuned for producing black holes, not life. I am currently wondering, is our universe fine tuned for black holes or for life?
Since many people here have a greater knowledge of physics than me (I’m just an amateur), I would like to see your answers.
