Here is a clip from one of our campus apologetics meetings at The Ohio State University. We discuss the fine-tuning argument by reviewing some definitions, as well as discuss some objections. We also provide some additional resources on the topic.

Scientists who accept the claim that our universe is fine-tuned for life (or at least, life ‘as we know it’) include
John Barrow, Bernard Carr, Brandon Carter, Paul Davies, George Ellis, Brian Greene, Alan Guth, Edward Harrison, Andrei Linde, Don Page, Roger Penrose, John Polkinghorne, Martin Rees, Lee Smolin, Leonard Susskind, Max Tegmark, Frank Tipler, Alexander Vilenkin, Steven Weinberg, John Wheeler, and Frank Wilczek, see Michael Rota, Taking Pascal’s Wager: Faith, Evidence and the Abundant Life (Downers Grove, IL: Intervarsity Press, 2016), 104-105. The debate is over the explanation of the fine-tuning of the universe.
