10 to the 55th decimal point


A designed universe: Several famous physicists, including Stephen Hawking worked out that the relationship between all the fundamentals of our universe are so finely tuned that even if we slightly changed the 55th decimal point then our universe could not exist. Put another way, several leading scientists have calculated that the statistical probability against this fine tuning being by chance is in the order of 1 in 10 to the 55th decimal point .

This probability is hard to imagine but an illustration may help. Imagine covering the whole of the USA with small coins, edge to edge. Now imagine piling other coins on each of these millions of coins. Now imagine continuing to pile coins on each coin until reaching the moon about 400,000 km away!

If you were told that within this vast mountain of coins there was one coin different to all the others. The statistical chance of finding that one coin is about 1 in 10 to the 55th decimal point . In other words the evidence that our universe is designed seems to be overwhelming!
