Yasir, the Anthropic Principle fits my belief system, in that if what I believe is true, then I would expect the natural laws of the universe to be condusive to life, allow matter to form etc etc.

The only way in which this line of reasoning can be overcome, is to propose the existence of other universes [a convienently unverifiable prospect for the atheist], in which the laws would not be so condusive.

I think it is important to not confuse the creation with the Creator, which is tantamount to idolotry. Interestingly, reducing the universe to fractals or math and symmetry, differs from the primitive worship of sun-gods only to the extent it is more sophisticated.
