Interesting observations gentlemen. Boomer’s is based on what actually exists, while Chris’ is based on what never has existed. Which is more solidly based, I ask rhetorically?
My observation merely points out the logical flaw in the Anthropic Principle that Boomer essentially restated. We see what we see because that's what we have. If we had something different, we'd see something different. Nothing too amazing about that.
Virtually everything we observe in the Universe had a vanishingly small probability of existing. That doesn't make everything a miracle. And we never see the vastly greater number of things that never came into being.
