"α = 1/137 is a law of nature

(0.007)

α (Alpha) the fine-structure constant - Anthropic explanation

The anthropic principle is a controversial argument of why the fine-structure constant has the value it does: stable matter, and therefore life and intelligent beings, could not exist if its value were much different.

For instance, were α to change by 4%, stellar fusion would not produce carbon, so that carbon-based life would be impossible. If α were greater than 0.1, stellar fusion would be impossible, and no place in the universe would be warm enough for life as we know it."

Are the fundamental Constants changing?

If pi were three, tires would have six sides, which would make for a very bumpy ride.

Constants aren't. Variables won't.

Mormon God is the same yesterday and forever. So if you're gay, find another church.

If the universe springs from the mind of God and the physical constants are changing, God must be a woman.
