Ever wonder the odds of winning the lottery? How about the odds of winning the lottery twice? Multiple lotteries in multiple states on the same night? We congratulations you and everyone in the universe have appeared to win a large cosmic lottery! What I am talking about is that fine tuning argument for the existence. I have seen different variations on this argument, either universally in the mathematical constants (gravity, strong/weak nuclear force, etc.) to the placement of our planet Earth. What I would like to do with this post is explore where we can see fine tuning and how it points to an intelligent designer of the universe.                 Starting with the mathematical constants for the universe, this argument starts with an analogy of the fundamental constants of the universe being on a sliding scale. If these constants were to be changed a small amount, then the universe would be uninhabitable for life. For example, if the cosmological constant were incre…
