Overview

A priest in the Diocese of Oxford, Holder continues his advocacy of Intelligent Design, a form of Creationism-lite, by arguing that the fundamental constants of physics and the initial conditions obtaining at the beginning of the universe suggest that it was designed by God. Primarily, he challenges what he takes to be theism's main explanatory rival, the notion that many universes exist, and that one that is conducive to life as we know it is bound to show up sooner or later. He explains some of the concepts of cosmology and particle physics, and some issues in the philosophy of probability by which to compare hypotheses, but writes for general readers and relegates the heavy mathematics to appendices.
