You need actually understand what people write
Perhaps you should read Paul Davies, "the Goldilocks Enigma", written subsequent to Schroeder that supports the same postion.

Perhaps you should understand the things you post about. Davies does not in any way support a "supernatural" answer for anything.

From Davies himself.

quote:
Thus, three centuries after Newton, symmetry is restored: the laws explain the universe even as the universe explains the laws. If there is an ultimate meaning to existence, as I believe is the case, the answer is to be found within nature, not beyond it. The universe might indeed be a fix, but if so, it has fixed itself.

Yes, the universe looks like a fix. But that doesn't mean that a god fixed it

Care to try again?


Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

Re: You need actually understand what people write
Although he "inclines" to nature, he sounds very much like Schoroeder, and I believe supports most of Schroeder's postions.

What you believe means nothing, as we have his own words that dispute this. If you want to misinterpret him fine, but don't pass off your misinterpretations as his meaning.
