About this episode:

Many physicists have pointed out the extraordinary ‘fine tuning’ of the physical laws of the universe that have allowed life to develop within the cosmos. Luke Barnes believes it gives evidence for a designer behind the cosmos, whereas Sabine Hossenfelder disagrees, questioning whether we can even speak of ‘fine tuning’ as a phenomenon.

Is the nature of our universe evidence for a designer or can it be explained in some other way such a multiverse theory? Is it legitimate to use science as evidence for the existence of God at all? These and more questions get debated.

Luke Barnes is an astrophysicist researching dark energy and multiverse theory at Western Sydney University. He it the co-author of ‘A Fortunate Universe: Life in a finely tuned cosmos’ in which he argues for the theistic implications of astrophysics.

Sabine Hossenfelder, theoretical physicist, Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies Sabine Hossenfelder is a theoretical physicist at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies. She runs a popular YouTube channel explaining theoretical physics.
