Impossible odds

One of the most amazing things about our world is the delicate balance required to sustain life. Astrophysicist Hugh Ross says that one of the twenty-five factors necessary for life is that the number of electrons has to be equivalent to the number of protons to an accuracy of one part in ten to the thirty-seventh. To get an idea of this he says imagine covering a billion continents the size of North America in dimes all the way up to the moon. Then paint one of those dimes red and have a blindfolded astronaut find it on the first attempt. These are the odds of the ratio of electrons to protons being at the precise level required for life; and this is just one of many parameters that must be so finely tuned. That’s why he and many like him believe there has to be something more than mere chance behind the Universe.
