Was the universe fine tuned for life, or is life fine tuned for the universe?
The universe isn’t fine-tuned for life, rather, life on earth arose because it could. Just as in the case of biological evolution, life is fine-tuned for the universe, rather than the other way around. —Lawrence Krauss.
Postulating the existence of a God that has nothing in common with us, doesn’t solve anything but only raises more questions.
What we fail to understand now, is the long and winding road how we got here. We do not even know who we are now, let alone where we came from and how, before we were aware of being aware.
The seat of consciousness may be organic after all.
The human body contains about 6.5 trillion viruses. They serve us without notice until a new virus enters the system—sometimes benign, sometimes a threat, but it makes one wonder—who is in charge here?
A recent study found that between 40 and 80 percent of the human genome arrived from some archaic viral invasion.
“That’s because viruses aren’t just critters that try to make a home in a body, the way bacteria do. Instead, a virus is a genetic parasite. It injects its genetic code into its host’s cells and hijacks them, turning them to its own purposes — typically, that means as factories for making more viruses. This process is usually either useless or harmful to the host, but every once in a while, the injected viral genes are benign or even useful enough to hang around”—Live Science
According to two papers published in the journal Cell in January, “long ago, a virus bound its genetic code to the genome of four-limbed animals. That snippet of code is still very much alive in humans’ brains today, where it does the very vital task of packaging up genetic information and sending it from nerve cells to their neighbors in little capsules that look a whole lot like viruses themselves. And these little packages of information might be critical elements of how nerves communicate and reorganize over time—tasks thought to be necessary for higher-order thinking”.
I understand god works in mysterious ways, but you may no longer be the child of god you think you are. Could god possibly orchestrate his greatest potentiates in such a manner? Or maybe that fuzzy confirmation that god is real, is just one virus to another.
