A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Anthropic Principle

I just now did a Google Search in order to find a reasonable explanation of the anthropic principle to which I could link in the post below. I was initially a little flummoxed, because the first seven or eight results on the page were all somehow Bible related, and seemed to claim that the anthropic principle somehow proved the existence of (the Christian) God. "What's this?" thought I. "Have the Christians learned the art of the Google Bomb?"

In fact no, it was Ockham's Razor at work again: I had accidentally searched Google for the anthropic principal.
