From the entire Universe which is about 14 billion light years across to the sub atomic level, the entire Universe was created by an extremely intelligent and powerful designer. The design included finely tuned or exact constants and laws of physics and chemistry as well as the unique characteristics of our planet and solar system. There are 30+ physical constants of the Universe that if not maintained then the Universe would not support life or probably even exist.

There is a discussion and an example in astrophysicist, Dr. Hugh Ross’s book, Creator and the Cosmos, that may help clarify. [ The ratio of electrons to protons cannot exceed a maximum deviation of 1 in 10 to 37th power. An example of one part in 10 to the 37th power could be explained using the following example] — “Cover the entire North American continent in dimes all the way to the moon, about 239,000 miles, next cover a billion similar continents in dimes stacked to the same height. Paint one dime red and randomly mix it in with the billions of piles of dimes. Blindfold a friend and ask him to pick out the one red dime. The odds that he will pick the red dime are one in 10 to the 37th power.” (p. 115) When atheistic and naturalistic scientists discovered the incredible and specific design that pervades our Universe, they created an absurdly implausible explanation, rather than admit an extremely intelligent designer or God had created the Universe. Their explanation was that miraculously something had created trillions of Universes which all had various constants and laws that would not support life or the existence of a Universe, but we just happened to get the right universe. There is no evidence or proof that any other Universe exists and this entire hypothesis is completely unscientific.

There are 20+ characteristics of our planet and solar system that make Earth uniquely qualified for supporting complex life. Our solar system is in the best place in the Milky Way galaxy for existence and for discovery of the rest of the universe. Below is a list of some of the factors that make our planet unique and that allows complex life to exits and thrive.

Sufficient Water vs Land, Distance to the Sun, Habitable zone in the galaxy

Distance to the Moon, Magnetic field size, Size of the Moon

Near Circular orbit, Tilt of the Earth, Type of Sun-G2 dwarf star

Habitable zone in the solar system, Rate of Rotation, Oxygen in atmosphere

Obviously our planet, our solar system, our galaxy, and our Universe were created and are being maintained by a supremely intelligent and powerful designer known as GOD. Even though GOD created everything including you and me, He also gave us the tool of science so that we can discover and learn about our Universe and life.
