Are humans the accidental products of an uncaring universe? Or are they the beneficiaries of a cosmic order that was planned beforehand to help them flourish? This documentary explores growing evidence from physics, chemistry, biology, and related fields that our universe was designed for large multi-cellular beings like ourselves. Geneticist and author Michael Denton investigates the special properties of carbon, water, and oxygen that make human life and the life of other organisms possible.
