“This is the best argument that the theists have when it comes to cosmology.  That’s because it plays by the rules.”

“... and then you have two different models, theism and naturalism, and you want to compare which model is the best fit for the data; I applaud that general approach.  Given that, it is still a terrible argument, it is not at all convincing, I will give you five quick reasons why theism does not offer a solution to the purported fine-tuning problem.”

Agreed. The Cosmological Argument often acts as a distraction.  People using it distract their opponents into refuting that argument, rather than concentrating on some of the key points of theistic mythology.

It was posted as a “New Topic” consisting of a link to a YouTube video and a couple of quotes taken from the video.

That’s about it.

No, I saw that. I don’t understand the thread because you didn’t say anything about it yourself.

Good video, short summary of how easy some of these arguments are to refute.

Thanks so much for sharing that video!
