Is the universe that produced us just a result of a chance roll of the cosmic dice?

Justin Brierley, the presenter of the radio apologetics debate show Unbelievable? demonstrates in a new video, posted this week, that it would have taken a gigantic streak of good luck to roll the dice so the universe would produce life. So gigantic, in fact, that the chances of it happening are 1 in 10 to the power of 55. This leaves us with a question: why is the universe so finely tuned for life?

Justin asks: ‘What if the evidence points to this life-permitting universe actually being the product of an intelligent mind, which intended for us to be here?’

Barbara Drossel, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Darmstadt, Germany, says: ‘The fine-tuning argument is not proof… but it’s a very convincing philosophical interpretation of the observation of fine-tuning.’
