"In the most general
terms, we claim that the relation between fine-tuning and the theory of design is
hypothetico-deductive, if there is a designer, this fact explains the
fine-tuning and is thereby confirmed.
More specifically, our claim is that given a theological research
program that includes the theory that the universe was created (designed) by a
God whose aim was personal relations with sentient beings, the fine tuning of
the universe can be seen to provide novel confirmation, in Imre Lakota's
terms" (Murphy and Ellis, p. 63).
