The Fine-Tuning of the Universe
Privileged Species – Discovery Science News
Are humans the accidental products of a blind and uncaring universe? Or are they the beneficiaries of a cosmic order that was planned beforehand to help them flourish? Privileged Species is a 33-minute documentary by Discovery Institute that explores growing evidence from physics, chemistry, biology, and related fields that our universe was designed for large multi-cellular beings like ourselves. Featuring geneticist and author Michael Denton, the documentary investigates the special properties of carbon, water, and oxygen that make human life and the life of other organisms possible, and it explores some of the unique features of humans that make us a truly privileged species.

Not only is the universe fine-tuned from the beginning, but there is also a habitability argument for our solar system. Our actual solar system is perfectly fine tuned in order to sustain life here on Earth – the third rock from the sun. For starters, if we were just a fraction closer or a fraction further away from the sun than what Earth’s orbit is today, life wouldn’t exist here.
Does Science Argue for or against God?
Why are we here? Literally. The latest science says we shouldn’t be. It says that the chance life exists at all is less than zero.
