Philosophia Christi 1 (2):73 - 87 (1999)

Abstract
In an appendix to his book ’Nonbelief and Evil’, Theodore Drange, systematically critiques what he calls the ’fine-tuning’ argument for God. The fine-tuning argument starts from the fact that the natural laws of the universe seem to be "fine-tuned" for life and then moves to the existence of God. That is, if some of the laws or constants were much different than they are, life as we know it would be impossible. Drange gives many arguments against the soundness of the fine-tuning argument. In my article, I examine every objection of Drange’s and conclude that none of them is sound
