Anthropic Principle I 225
Anthropic principle/Freeman Dyson (Author): "I am not saying the structure of the universe proves the existence of God, but He is compatible with the hypothesis that the spirit plays a crucial role for its functioning
I 227
Anthropic principle/Dennett: in its "weak form" it is harmless, occasionally useful application of elementary logic: if x is a necessary condition for the existence of y, and if y exists, then x exists as well. (> Salmon)
DennettVsAnthropic principle: "Strong Form": false use of "must": "If physical structures depend on larger molecules, then they must exist, because we exist.
Correct instead: It must be the case that: if consciousness depends on ..., then there are such elements in the world, because we have a consciousness.
The conclusion to which one is entitled only says that there are such elements, not that there have to be.
