Why is the universe equipped with fixed physical laws and with natural constants that are precisely and ideally suited to support a planet like ours and all the life on it?

What do we mean by fine-tuning? Consider, for instance, the precise settings of four fundamental physical forces: electromagnetism, gravity, strong nuclear force, and weak nuclear force.* These forces affect every object in the universe. They are set and balanced so precisely that even slight changes could render the universe lifeless.

The weak nuclear force keeps our sun burning at a steady rate

The strong nuclear force binds the nucleus of atoms together

Gravity is responsible for keeping objects on the earth

Electromagnetism is the force behind lightning

If these four forces were not precisely tuned and
balanced, no life would be possible
