Dice Don’t Prove God: A Response to a Fine-Tuning Argument

After browsing YouTube a bit, I found a video with an impressive 2 million views that claimed that dice show that God must exist. Naturally I was very sceptical of this claim, but I decided to give it a watch anyway. The video presented a version of the "fine-tuning" argument, but made a number of mistakes and logical fallacies along the way.

From Eternity to Here – Sean Carroll

"From Eternity to Here" offers an expertly thorough exploration of the nature of time, covering a wide range of concepts in theoretical physics in exquisite detail. The major focus is on time's relation to thermodynamics and entropy, but Carroll goes above and beyond the basic considerations and takes the reader on a journey touching upon a plethora of mysteries in modern physics.

Next Book: From Eternity to Here – Sean Carroll

Carroll explores what our intuitive understanding of time is, and how physics in the form of relativity and thermodynamics offer a deeper understanding of how time's arrow arises. Beginning with the simple observation that eggs can be made into omelettes but omelettes can't easily be made into eggs, Carroll takes us on a scientific roller-coaster all the way to the multiverse.

Many Worlds? Do they Exist?

Many Worlds theory is undeniably a serious academic field, yet most know very little about it other than that it claims there are more worlds than this one, and that it has something to do with quantum theory. I hope you will enjoy learning a bit about what this theory is and why it deserves to be taken seriously.

Universes of Another Kind

There are other kinds of multiverse that physicists discuss, but there's an entirely different kind of multiverse that is discussed by philosophers, not physicists. This is the multiverse of "possible worlds", and was introduced as a semantics that made modal statements much easier to analyse.
