Ah yes, the Anthropic Principle (the Universe was designed to bring us
into being). However, if the universe had not had exactly the right
combination of factors to bring us into being, we would not be here to
observe that fact. There might be billions of "damp squib" universes
which did not contain exactly the right combination of physical
constants to light up.
