The precision of the universe

By Tom Quiner

The universe is so finely calibrated, that it defies logic to discount the possibility of Intelligent Design.

As Michael Turner, astrophysicist at the University of Chicago and Fermilab put it:

“The precision is as if one could throw a dart across the entire universe and hit a bulls eye one millimeter in diameter on the other side.”

Now, that’s precise!

    Yes! I’ve seen this analogy, in different forms, stated by other scientists — I strongly relate to the logic. It really calls upon all self-proclaimed “atheists” to revisit physics, probability theory, and logic and reopen the door to at least the possibility of a Higher Intelligence, doesn’t it? The action of a Higher Intelligence seems at least as likely a source as a single, random, “big bang” having resulted in this masterpiece of a universe, or the possibility (which some now want to claim), of there having been an infinite number of “big bangs”, one of which happened upon the perfect mix of universal laws and constants to produce our world.
