The Conscious Universe

Via Rick Moran a quote about the universe:

By the late sixties, it had become clear that if the Big Bang had been just one part in a million more powerful, the cosmos would have blown outward too fast to allow stars and worlds to form. Result: no us. Even more coincidentally, the universe’s four forces and all of its constants are just perfectly set up for atomic interactions, the existence of atoms and elements, planets, liquid water, and life. Tweak any of them and you never existed.

You read this and the instant reaction is "What are the odds?" or ... "Thank God!"

It's almost as if an Intelligent Designer figured it out to work out elegantly. Just in time to ponder for Sunday.
