Fine Tuned for Life - "Something from Nothing" to the Martingale Multiverse

Abstract
In this paper I will attempt to demonstrate [what I perceive as] the errors in logic made by theists in first positing that a Life Permitting Universe (LPU) is improbable under the naturalistic single universe (NSU) hypothesis, and subsequently in arguing that the MV hypothesis commits what Ian Hacking (1987) referred to as “the Inverse Gambler’s Fallacy”. Firstly, I will attempt to demonstrate why an LPU is not improbable under the NSU. Secondly, I will attempt to demonstrate that if we ascribe a probability value to our LPU, we can directly infer either an MV or the existence or “Deeper Laws” (Barnes, 2020) from that probability value.
