“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…”
Those that argue, “the universe is not finely tuned!”, need to understand why no other life can be found…at least not sentient life.
The world was made by and for God…for that personal relationship with mankind. Colossian 1:16-20
The entire universe is a display of the glory of God…for us..if it is indeed finely tuned.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
CS Lewis says, “There is no reason why the minute earth and the yet smaller human creatures upon it should not be the most important things in a universe that contains the spiral nebulae.’ No reason, that is… if God exists.”
If God exists…. then the universe was made for us, as we are made for God.
We have a finely tuned universe FOR that reason…if God exists.
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”. Col 1:16-20
If you don’t see a finely tuned earth, explain how just seeing the display of the heavens is ONLY possible currently,at this very moment. All stars, nebulae, galaxies, solar systems etc. could and would not be seen. Their light source happened ages ago…but our lives, all humanity just happened to be here in the exact and ONLY moment for the show. Think about it.
“Still, after erasing millions of potential events that may have been caused by human interference or natural forces – for instance, bursts of cosmic radiation – there were only a handful of candidates left. Upon further analysis, the team was left completely empty-handed.” https://www.sciencealert.com/the-most-comprehensive-and-sensitive-radio-search-ever-has-found-no-sign-of-alien-life
Science again is confirming the text of the Bible.
Will there be alien planets found? Will they have sentient life…which know and need God, Christ?
Is this planet, this experience as important to God…as it is to us?
Are we made specifically by and for God?
Is it really…just God seeking a relationship of choice with us…
