One of the reoccuring themes in the plurality debate is the Goldilocks Enigma.  The Goldilocks Enigma is based on scientific observations showing that if the universe or the planet Earth were any diffirent it would have profound effects on the possibility for the formation of life.  It is commonly known as the Goldilocks Enigma because our place in the universe is "just right" similar to the porridge that Goldilocks ate in the fairy tale.  Many authors such as William Whewell and Alfred Russel Wallace, and Stephen Webb have written about how unique our place in the universe must be and have all argued, more or less, that it shows how special life is and that we are most likely alone.  The Goldilocks Enigma is primarily used as a way to check pluralistic enthusiasim by putting scientific and astronomical findings in the context of the formation of life.
