Reflections on the Holy Scripture

The Anthropic Principle, loosely, is the idea that universal and local conditions are near-perfect for life to even exist. Coupled with the Rare Earth Hypothesis, this supports the idea that with many factors having such narrow parameters for life to exist that life is highly improbably in the universe. Eventually enough factors leads to the idea that complex life is practically impossible to form on its own. Therefore the idea supports a Designer present and capable of fine tuning the Universe in order for life to exist.

From a Creationist's standpoint, Earth would be the only planet in the universe that is even capable of supporting complex life with God having made all possible situations and factors ideal for it. This does not rule out the possibility that God may have allowed for the existence of single-cellular organisms on extrasolar planets (as extemophile organisms have been confirmed on Earth).
