The Anthropic Principle

It is written:

“But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; 8  Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you. 9  Who among all these does not know That the hand of the LORD has done this, 10  In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?” (Job 12:7-10)

There is a principle within science known as the Anthropic Principle. It has reference to the evidences which show us that the universe was specifically designed for mankind to exist, and for him to discover God through the Creation.

“Scientists have cataloged more 140 quantifiable characteristics required for physical life to exist….There have now been found more than 400 quantifiable characteristics for advanced life like mammals to exist. It appears that the laws of physics in general and the characteristics of Earth in particular have been carefully tailored so that human beings can survive happily, and it’s such an obvious and pervasive observation, that it’s been called the Anthropic Principle, after the Greek word for “man” -anthrōpos. The Anthropic Principle is a clear concept in science, and secular physicists John Barrow and Frank Tipler have written a well-known book on it…..Life requires a host of carefully coordinated features, and it’s staggering to find them each balanced into their precise positions like a carefully choreographed dance. All of those factors lined up at the same time in the same place, and the composite statistical improbability of their all happening by chance is so great, it becomes absurd to consider it….Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards wrote a book and produced a set of films called The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery. These scientists are associated with the Discovery Institute and the Intelligent Design movement, and the information they provide will astonish you. They make the case that the universe was not only designed for humankind to live and thrive, but that it was designed to be learned about. The more we understand about the characteristics of the universe, the more astounded we should be by each little detail that makes the miracle of our existence possible.” (Dr. Chuck Missler, Angels Volume Two: Messengers From The Metacosm, 784-802 (Kindle Edition); Coeur d’Alene, ID; Koinonia House Inc.)

The testimony of the Creation reflects the existence and majesty of the Creator. Have you heard the Word of God in nature and in sacred Scripture (Romans 1:18-20; 10:17; Acts 2:37-47; 1 John 1:9-2:2)?
