The Fine-Tuning Argument & Sabine Hossenfelder | VE16Vote
The fine-tuning argument says that cosmic fine-tuning (the scientific observation that given the physical laws of our universe, if certain physical constants and quantities were altered by more than a hair’s breadth, the universe would be life-prohibiting) is evidence for design, and thus evidence for theism over atheism. In one of her videos @Sabine Hossenfelder argues that the cosmic fine-tuning isn’t evidence for the existence of God. I respond to that video here.
