Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

It is, however, important to note that the world is supremely capable of producing stable complexity which includes, on Earth, the development of multiform varieties of life.

  1. This fact requires an explanation, but possibilities other than those of theistic design or divine purpose exist.
  2. One such explanation is the Weak Anthropic Principle (WAp1).
  3. Attempts to strengthen the Anthropic Principle (to the "Strong2" or "Final3" forms - ie. by suggesting that the universe had to have the properties necessary to allow life to develop) are only dogmatic assertions & the Final Anthropic Principle is almost certainly false.
  4. The postulation of a series of universes, most of which were (or are) sterile and therefore free from observers falls victim to Occam's Razor, since nothing can be known about these past or parallel universes.
