This is the first of several posts on the design of the universe. There are 128 known parameters that must be finely tuned and maintained for our universe, our planet, and therefore life can even exist. The one thing that scientist have come to understand is that it is getting not only harder to deny a creator; the odds are now so overwhelming and mind-boggling that there is not any other reasonable explanation.

Review the chart; if you are like me you will not have even the basic understanding of many of these parameters, but the scientist do and they have weighed in. Remember that not only must each of these parameters have been true, but the fact that they all had to work in concert with each other parameter. Resulting in a set of odds that are mind-boggling.

 

Probability for occurrence of all 128 parameters ≈ 10-166

Maximum possible number of planets in universe ≈ 1022

Thus, less than 1 chance in 10144 (trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion) exists that even one such planet would occur anywhere in the universe.[1]
