The latest episode of Unbelievable (“Is the fine-tuning of the universe evidence for God”) is both interesting and illuminating; not only because of the subject matter, but because it provides a kind of porthole through which to analyze the psychology of belief (both for the atheist and theist). I plan on sharing some thoughts soon, but the first order of business is to give the debate a listen.
Here's the blurb for the discussion:
Science has revealed that the fundamental constants and forces of the cosmos appear to be exquisitely fine-tuned to allow a universe in which life can develop. Is God the best explanation of the incredibly improbable odds of the universe we live in being a life-permitting one?
Robin Collins is a Christian philosopher and a leading advocate of the argument for God from cosmic design. Peter Millican is an atheist philosopher at Oxford University. They debate the issues.
