Is fine tuning for life in the Big Bang evidence of God? - 'God and the Big Bang' video series #4 Dark Matters
There had to be fine tuning for life in the Big Bang - it had to happen in a very precise way so that we could be here today. Most kinds of Big Bang would only have produced a Universe filled with clouds of hydrogen, or with black holes. Is this fine tuning evidence of God?
Astronomers and physicists are confident that the Big Bang happened. But there are still many questions that remain unanswered - questions about the existence and nature of Dark Matter, and about the fine tuning of the Big Bang for life.
'If the rate of expansion one second after the Big Bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the Universe would have recollapsed before it ever reached its present state.' - Professor Stephen Hawking
