"Paul Davies is a very distinguished astrophysicist."

That has nothing to do with the fact that he's smart enough to write popular books catering to those who want to believe goddidit, since god can't be excluded. If someone were writing to Buddhists, I'm sure we'd see a take giving those who believe in karma hope. Karma can't be excluded either.

It is clearly an area of high personal interest to Davies and he's quite good at it. Nonetheless, it is simply all post hoc rationalizations.

Okay. Nobody on this thread is going to read Goldilocks because it's not a scientific book. I didn't originate this thread. Since so many people entered it, I assumed it was of some interest.
