Sean Carroll on the fine tuning arguments

Sean Carroll has a good rebuttal of the "fine tuning" argument for God's existence. Personally, I'm not entirely convinced that there's even anything that needs to be explained. Since the "tuning" being discussed is purely metaphorical, I don't know that it makes sense to wonder why physical laws happens to be the way they are. If someone knows of a good philosophical treaty that sheds light on the validity of the question, please tell me. One thing Carroll does well here is to discuss theism as a theory, explicitly stating what we'd expect to see (and clearly don't see) if theism were true.
