Post Arguing Fine-Tuning and Design
Do we exist because the Universe was designed and planned to be fine-tuned to enable us to exist (i.e. - are we pre-planned) OR do we exist as a result of the happenstance that just came to be in terms of the non-designed laws, principles and relationships inherent in an unplanned Universe?

Assume for sake of argument that life, the Universe and everything was created roughly 6000 years and that Adam & Eve were the first reproducing humans. Assuming that there are 25 years per reproductive generation, that's about 240 generations separating me from Adam & Eve. In order to get from Adam & Eve to Me exactly as I am, every previous generation - all 240 of them - had to be just-so. The right males had to meet-and-greet the right females and reproduce at a just-so moment to ensure one specific egg meet-and-greet-and combine with one specific sperm and that happened again and again and again - 240 times in a row. One oops within the causal chain and no Me.

Now extend that causal chain back to the first proto-cell (and if you want extend even further back to the physical and chemical chains that led to that first proto-cell). There were literally billions of just-so, finely-tuned happenings that ultimately led to Me starting from that first proto-cell (and even before that). One broken chain in that linkage and again, no Me. Since there is a Me then obviously all of creation was designed and finely-tuned to ultimately produce Me.

If you see the flaw in that reasoning then you see the flaw in the fine-tuning and design argument.
