Quick answers to common questions
The universe looks like it was designed.
Cosmologists have found that the physics – the laws and the numbers – all seems to fit together just right to produce a universe that permits life and allow us to live and observe it all.
If anything was a little different, we wouldn’t have been here.
But how did this happen?
- Was it an amazing coincidence?
- Is there some underlying physical necessity that meant it couldn’t have been any different?
- Is there a supernatural creator who made it this way?
- Or zillions of universes and naturally life only involved in the rare universe that supports life?
The cosmologists tell us a coincidence is impossibly unlikely. And they can find no reason why it had to be this way. So it was either God, or there are many, many universes – or maybe both of these.
