    I was somewhat disappointed with this podcast.

    What’s the value of trying to prove a probability for the existence of God by appealing to unscientific theoretical ideas like “The Cosmic Constant” and “dark matter” and “multiverses”? Mathematical equations can’t explain the existence of anything. The Fine Tuning argument based upon supposed “physical constants” is entirely presumptuous.

    Physicists have to make up a lot of stuff in order to “fix” the numerous problems with their equations. Believing that over 60% (or more) of the energy in the universe supposedly comes from “dark matter” (which nobody has ever actually proven is even out there) takes a lot of faith. There is also no evidence of “multiple universes” where these other imaginary “constants” supposedly exist.

    It seems much more reasonable just to believe in the God of Israel because there is actually historical evidence and (human testimony in scripture) that He exists.
