Near the end of the article is:-

” the “anthropic principle” established in science, for example, has shown at least that the existence of God is more probable than improbable”

However, the truth seems to be the opposite. The anthropic principle states that we are always likely to find ourselves in a universe suitable for us as if it was not so we would not be able to observe it. Where is the inferrence of a deity here?

This is usually used in the context of a multiverse scenario where we would need to state why one universe rather than another contains us and why that unuiverse is so habitable. This removes the need for divine intervention. Is this a genuine mistake or outright falsehood?
