So, before space was shown to be flat, the religious view was that the universe wasn't finely tuned through the big bang??
What about before the big bang? Was the religious view that the universe was finely tuned then too?
Before the discovery of the big bang, there was less research altogether of origins of the universe. So there wasn't any dialogue in terms of fine-tuning or not. Evolution wasn't as talked about either. The entire discussion didn't exist. People had other evidences for belief in God, some of which is just plainly accepting truth presented by Scripture.
This most recent response of yours is almost parallel to a theist saying "dinosaurs didn't exist because the bible didn't mention them!" Sharpshooter, you're better than this
Did you get any of the video presented? The explosion of the big bang and the closeness of expansion and contraction of the universe is extreeeeeeeeeeemely unimaginably close. It's like blasting something into the atmosphere and perfectly finding the escape velocity for perfect orbit. That's a universe fine tuned.
Evolution is not permission.
And 99.9% of all species that ever existed have gone extinct....how can you possibly consider that 'fine-tuning'?
This is the best atheism has to offer? This is child's play.
Our planet is fine-tuned for LIFE.
Species die and other species replace them. 99.9% of all species that ever existed have gone extinct how do you even make that claim when evolution produces more and more complex species? This argument is splitting hairs. Life exists on our planet, it is fine tuned for the ebb and flow of life. Name me one planet with life on it?
Do it, name me one planet with life on it.
