Astronomer Fred Hoyle had originally been a strong advocate of the fixed constants argument, because as a religious person he felt this pointed to a grand scheme, instigated by a designer. This also made him a strong opponent of big bang theory. However, he was later compelled to concede that both big bang theory had been proven more likely than his "steady state" theory
In other words, the production of the fundamental particles of which all things are made, within stars, doesn't actually hinge upon fixed values at all. The "goldilocks" argument is a neat parable, but it doesn't actually deal with all of the evidence.
Similarly, it should be noted, that most of the universe is completely inhospitable to any kind of DNA based life. Only our pale blue dot Earth, as far as we know, is conducive to or contains any life at all. If, then, it is to be argued that the universe was created with DNA based life in mind, the immediate problem posed is why it was necessary to create the entire rest of the universe?
I did some research... You know there was a time when being a scientist and an atheist was almost the same. They couldn't 'find' God, so he didn't exist.
"Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist"
"15 percent of the most brilliant minds in the scientific world accept Intelligent Design and this is troubling."
