Design of the Quantum Tunneling Phenomenon

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

American chemists have found more evidence for the supernatural design of the quantum tunneling phenomenon. In quantum tunneling, a particle crosses or tunnels through a potential energy barrier where classical physics would conclude that the particle did not have enough energy to do so. They discovered that the value of the level of uncertainty in the Heisenberg uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics is exquisitely fine-tuned so as to permit an extremely broad range of quantum tunneling rates (a factor of 50 or more) for many life-essential biological reactions. Without such exquisite fine tuning life would be impossible.
