49. Probability of Correct Mass of Body Accreted by Primordial Earth: 1 in 10^25 (estimated)

The estimation of the probability of 1 in 10^25 for the correct mass of a body being accreted by the primordial Earth is also based on multiple lines of evidence from geochemical observations and theoretical modeling studies.
Earth's present-day mass and bulk composition provide tight constraints on the total mass and type of material that was accreted during its formation. Analyses of highly siderophile element abundances in Earth's mantle give clues about the final stages of accretion, including the mass of impactors involved. Dynamical models of terrestrial planet formation find that matching Earth's specific mass requires an exceptionally precise combination of impactor masses and accretional histories. N-body simulations exploring a vast array of starting conditions indicate that only a minuscule fraction (< 10^-25) of cases result in a final body with Earth's exact mass after ~100-200 million years of accretion. This tiny fraction arises from the need to gradually build up mass through consolidation of smaller bodies, while avoiding major impacts that would disrupt, strip or disperse the accreting planet at each step. Even slight deviations in the masses, velocities or timing of accretional events at any stage drastically alter the final mass of the planet compared to Earth. The stochastic nature of accretion makes successfully navigating this chain of requirements for ending up with 1 Earth mass so unlikely that it requires an exceptionally low probability, estimated around 1 in 10^25.

50. Probability of Correct Timing of Body Accretion by Primordial Earth: 1 in 10^20 (estimated)

The estimation of the probability of 1 in 10^20 for the correct timing of a body's accretion by the primordial Earth is based on several lines of evidence from isotopic analyses and modeling studies. However, it's important to note that these are rough order-of-magnitude estimates given the complexity of the accretion process. Isotopic evidence, particularly from extinct radioactive systems like Hf-W and U-Pb, places tight constraints on the timescales over which Earth accreted its mass. For example, Hf-W data suggests Earth's main accretion occurred within a ~30 million year window around 4.5 billion years ago. Theoretical models of terrestrial planet formation via accretion of planetesimals indicate that reproducing the final masses and orbits of the terrestrial planets requires an extremely precise chronology of accretional events. Even slight changes in the timing can dramatically alter the outcome. N-body simulations exploring the parameter space of initial conditions find that only an exceedingly small fraction (<10^-20) of plausible starting configurations result in an Earth analog with the correct mass accreting over the constrained time window. This tiny fraction arises from the need to have orbital dynamics, impactor masses/velocities/angles align in a very specific sequence over 10s of millions of years to gradually build up the Earth without dispersing or over-shooting its final mass. Given the stochastic nature of accretion, having this sequence unfold so precisely points to an extremely low probability event on the order of 1 in 10^20 or less. So in essence, the 1 in 10^20 estimate arises from the convergence of isotopic constraints tightly defining when Earth accreted with theoretical models and N-body simulations indicating just how finely-tuned and unlikely those timings were compared to other possible outcomes. But it is just a rough estimate given the complexity involved.

///  write an introduction text, of what we are talking about, what X is, and why it is relevant to fine tuning.,  like the following:

8. The number of e-foldings

The number of e-foldings (It is called "e-foldings" because it is based on the mathematical constant e.) is a crucial parameter in inflationary cosmology, as it quantifies the amount of exponential expansion that occurred during the inflationary epoch. An e-folding is a unit that represents the number of times the universe's size doubled during this period of accelerated expansion. The number of e-foldings is directly related to the duration of inflation and plays a crucial role in determining the observable universe's size and flatness. A larger number of e-foldings corresponds to a more extended period of inflation and a greater amount of expansion, while a smaller number implies a shorter inflationary epoch. Observational data, particularly from the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and the large-scale structure of the universe, suggest that around 60 e-foldings of inflation were required to solve the flatness and horizon problems and to generate the observed density perturbations that seeded the formation of cosmic structures.//////

After the introduction, write ( consider that the explanations have to fit a YEC cosmological model, so we are not talking about evolution of the universe, but the precise fit to have it operating, and life permitting:

How is the parameter relevant to get galaxies, necessary for life
what is the possible parameter range?
What would happen, if the parameter would be outside this range?
what is the possible life permitting range
What if it trespasses the upper , and lower limit?

find sciene paper writing about this topic, and , if you can find, post if both values :what is the possible parameter range, and: what is the possible life permitting range.

and based on the data , calculate the fine-tuning odds. write the odds in exponential form, as 1 in 10^x
If they values are not to be found in the papers, if possible, find them yourself online, and do the fine tuning, and odds calculations.  
If they cannot be calculated, can they be reasonably estimated? if so do it, and inform that the calculations are based on estimations.

respond in the following formatting example, in bbcode, with title underline, do not write the numbers that inform the links in the write up, only in the end. without bullets points, nor stars, and in the end, always the odds ad exponential, like this: 1 in 10^x :  

9. Correct relative abundances of different exotic mass particles

The relative abundances of different exotic mass particles, such as dark matter particles, axions, and other hypothetical particles, are crucial parameters that have significant implications for the formation and evolution of cosmic structures, as well as the overall dynamics of the universe.
The relative abundances of these exotic particles play a vital role in determining the gravitational interactions and the overall matter distribution in the universe. If these abundances were significantly different from their observed values, it could have profound effects on the formation of galaxies, stars, and other cosmic structures necessary for the emergence and sustenance of life.

Possible Parameter Range: The possible range for the relative abundances of exotic mass particles is not well-constrained by current observations and theoretical models. However, some general constraints can be inferred from cosmological observations and particle physics experiments. For dark matter particles, the observed matter density in the universe suggests that their abundance should be around 25-27% of the total energy density of the universe[1]. The abundance of axions, which are hypothetical particles proposed to solve the strong CP problem in quantum chromodynamics (QCD), is typically constrained by astrophysical observations and laboratory experiments.

Life-Permitting Range: The life-permitting range for the relative abundances of exotic mass particles is not precisely known, as it depends on the complex interplay between various cosmic processes and the formation of structures suitable for life. However, some general considerations can be made: If the dark matter abundance is too low, it may not provide sufficient gravitational attraction to allow the formation of large-scale structures like galaxies and clusters. If it is too high, it could inhibit the formation of stars and galaxies due to excessive gravitational effects. Axions are proposed to be a potential component of dark matter. Their abundance needs to be within a specific range to contribute to the observed dark matter density without disrupting the formation of cosmic structures. The abundances of other hypothetical particles, such as those predicted by supersymmetry or other extensions of the Standard Model, would need to be carefully balanced to avoid disrupting the delicate processes involved in structure formation and the evolution of the universe.

Unfortunately, specific quantitative estimates for the life-permitting ranges of these parameters are not readily available in the scientific literature. Further research and observations are needed to better constrain these ranges and understand their implications for the emergence of life.

Fine-Tuning Odds Due to the lack of precise quantitative estimates for the life-permitting ranges of the relative abundances of exotic mass particles, it is challenging to calculate the fine-tuning odds with high accuracy. However, based on the general considerations mentioned above, it is reasonable to assume that the observed abundances of these particles are finely tuned to allow the formation of cosmic structures and the emergence of life. While a precise calculation of the fine-tuning odds is not possible at this stage, the fact that the observed abundances fall within the narrow ranges required for the formation of galaxies, stars, and other cosmic structures necessary for life suggests that the fine-tuning odds are likely to be significant.

// and in the end, always the odds ad exponential, like this: 1 in 10^x ( X = INSERT THE CALCULATED VALUE, IN ALL EXPONENTIAL RESULTS)  :  ///
