This chapter considers the possibility that science offers positive support for Christian belief. Scientific discoveries provide premises for good arguments for the existence of God. Two kinds of arguments of this sort have been suggested, both connected in one way or another with intelligent design. First, there are the “fine-tuning” arguments for theism; scientific discoveries in physics and astronomy about the structure of the universe offer the premises for a theistic argument. Secondly, there are arguments from biology, arguments involving the nature and character of the living beings our world displays. The chapter examines fine-tuning arguments.
