Flannel Jesus wrote:That in a universe with many environments, and only some small fraction suitable for life, we, being life, would obviously expect to find ourselves in one of the small fraction suitable for life.
FJ, that we must inhabit a habitable universe is a tautology. You can't do what Susskind does which is use that fact to prove that the Big Bang is not the result of design.
Here's another quote from Susskind that demonstrates his flawed logic:
Susskind wrote:A megaverse of such diversity is unlikely to support intelligent life anywhere but in a tiny fraction of its expanse. According to this view, many questions such as, “Why is a certain constant of nature one number, instead of another?” will have answers that are entirely different from what physicists had hoped. No unique value will be picked out by mathematical consistency, since the Landscape permits an enormous variety of possible values. Instead, the answer will be, “Somewhere in the megaverse, the constant equals this number; somewhere else it is that number. We live in one tiny pocket where the value of the constant is consistent with our kind of life. That’s it! That’s all! There is no other answer to the question.”
