‘Once we see that the probability of life originating at random is utterly miniscule as to make it absurd, it becomes sensible to think that the favourable properties of physics, on which life depends, are in every respect deliberate. It is almost inevitable that our own measure of intelligence must reflect higher intelligence – even to the limit of God.’
