I haven’t got anything new to say about the AP, but I am not a huge fan of it.  Here’s a little story.

A bloke wakes up on a desert Island.  He doesn’t know how he got there, but concludes that what ever the reason was, it must be such that it ended up with him being on a desert island. 

Well, yes, exactly.  Absolutely true, and absolutely useless.  I think the (strong) AP is a bit like that.  Any one dissent?  Any one concur?

I agree somewhat, we are here and we wonder why. It means nothing.

I agree with your Anthropic Principle. Share more related to this.

Interesting how this program works, especially when read alongside the “more human than human comment”

I expect it will disappear in a puff of smoke soon.
