Alex,

***Instead of trying to model development of universe mathematically and thus explain "in numbers" how it works, they speculate WITHOUT enough data. To only tomorrow discard yesterday's "finding". It is more close to philosophy than to objective science.***

Before you can provide models to better explain a discrepancy that is inside current models, the problems with the current models must be made known. What you are doing in effect is deny there is a problem while going on wistfully ignoring the problem.

***So, does "10-finger human antropic principle" still bother you, or you finally begin to understand that life can be VERY different than "by human like and appearance".***

The fact that you say this shows that you have a very poor understanding of the anthropic principle. I would blame this on the possibility that your education was skewed against the anthropic principle, but I know that Alexander Vilenken, Andrei Linde, and a few other Russian cosmologists talk freely and openly about the anthropic principle as almost required in cosmology. So, what's your excuse? My opinion is that this subject encroaches too close on your anti-theist views and this affects your ability to accept even scientific work. I know you'll immediately come back (insulting me) because of my honesty, but a spade is a spade.

Warm regards, Harv
