Please click here for the comic before reading the rest. It's a big image, and I think it demonstrates the point quite well.
The Fine Tuning Argument strikes me as rather egotistical, as you probably guessed from the post title. It's not a problem for us skeptics and atheists. We can accept that the universe could have turned out differently. Even if you can show how improbable our familiar constants and laws of physics, that's not a problem. If they were different, we wouldn't be here complaining about it. It's possible that if they were different some other, entirely different form of life could have cropped up and possibly have members performing the same fallacy while others point out that our hypothetical selves might have had this conversation.
Of course, I see no reason why a universe-creating event could only happen once. Run a lottery long enough and someone's bound to win, eventually. Just because we may have won the universe lottery is no reason to get a big head.
A particular troll named vjazz ended up inspiring this post when I realized the nature of the argument. It goes something like this:
IDiot/Fundie/Troll: "Why does this universe exist with us in it, instead of some other, different universe?"
Atheist: "No particular reason. If it was different, we wouldn't be around to care, anyway."
I/F/D: "No, I'm too special and important to just be a product of as yet unpredictable forces, therefore I must invent an intelligent entity whose purpose for existing is to create me. I will call this entity a 'god.'"
Thanks go to the Calvin & Hobbes Extensive Strip Search for telling me where to find the comic, my brother for scanning in his image, and, of course, major, major props for Bill Watterson for making it. Buy his books. Do it. Now. I said now.
