Cosmos finale of course claims there is no fine-tuning of universe for life

Fine- tuning is one of the easiest facts to establish, and no one would dispute it, apart from certain agendas:
Sunday night’s episode thus included a lengthy segment quoting Carl Sagan from the original Cosmos series giving his famous pale blue dot monologue. Sagan called Earth a “mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam,” and “a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.” The monologue promotes the materialistic view that “In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.” But perhaps the most telling Sagan quote replayed on Sunday night cited:
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe are challenged by this point of pail light.
That comment from Sagan, of course, played an important role in instigating a project by Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards … More.
So basically, between Sagan’s death and now there has been no evidence against fine-tuning?
Don’t expect THAT to be on any curriculum. Might be illegal.
