RE: Why nothing is cosmologically fine-tuned.
Even if there are many planets that have life on them, I would not say the Universe is finely tuned for life, due to the fact that plenty of mass extinctions occur and most of the Universe is inhospitable to begin with. It's mostly just space and high levels of radiation. How does that equal "finely tuned"?

It's the theistic way of looking at the mere fact that, in certain very rare conditions, life is possible at all. Count your blessings and all that....

RE: Why nothing is cosmologically fine-tuned.
I just read the title in a different way: "nothing" is fine tuned. As in, someone did some fine tuning to produce that "nothing" people are always talking about. Now let's see them turn it into "something".

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.
