Anthropic Principle
Funny word, anthropic. Sounds like some kind of graphic.

Can't sleep tonight. I'm dizzyly spinning around the cosmos -- contemplating "The Anthropic Principle". I looked it up in the Wikipedia -- Anthropic Principle. It means that the universe we can see looks to us as though it fits us like a glove.

Some are rather surprised at this striking coincidence. If things were even minutely different, by a particle of a degree, we could not possibly be here. In the development everything would have fragmented into disorganized chaotic bits and pieces with no purpose or meaning. Seemingly, only the most complex rigorously orchestrated and exacting choreography put us where we stand, a grand production that has occupied eons of time in the staging of this scene.

From our perspective this is an easy judgement. We already know that Heavenly Father created all this just for us. He has told us so. Not everyone is in possession of such assurance, so they argue a lot and entertain lots of doubts. When the day comes that we finally settle our differences, there will be no more doubts.

Isn't it just so grand that everything in cosmology seems to have a hyperlink that shifts us right back into the gospel. The anthropic principle becomes just a fancy label for Alma's Reply, the answer to Korihor's solipsism (Alma 30:41).

All things testify of Christ.

Amen.
