Recent research draws an unapologetic parallel between human engineering and biological systems.
The fine tuning, what Denton calls anthropic prior fitness, would seem to require foresight and planning on literally a cosmic scale.
“Denton provides a scientific underpinning for a theistic humanism far beyond the nihilistic implications of so-called secular humanism,” writes Günter Bechly.
It’s a long list of things, and indeed, a long list of interdependent ensembles of prior fitness.
Scientific discoveries have revitalized the outlook that placed man at the center of the cosmos, not in a physical but in a metaphysical sense.
