The Fallacy of Fine-Tuning: Why the Universe Is Not Designed for Us - Victor J. Stenger
In this in-depth, lucid discussion of this fascinating and controversial topic, physicist and author of GOD: The Failed Hypothesis, Victor J. Stenger looks at the same evidence and comes to the opposite conclusion. He states at the outset that as a physicist he will go wherever the data takes him, even if it leads him to God. But after many years of research in particle physics and thinking about its implications, he finds that the observations of science and our naked senses not only show no evidence for God, they provide evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that God does not exist.
Although Stenger has touched on the subject of fine-tuning in other books, this is his most thorough exploration of a topic that continues to intrigue scientists and the lay public alike. Amazon
