Is this really what the anthropic principles are? I heard a much different set of definitions.

Not in my opinion. My simple interpretation was:

Strong=Intelligent Design
Weak=Necessary Structure

EDIT: Actually I now see what Turtle was getting at but I believe he/she has it the wrong way around. Strong would imply one universe weak would imply an infinite number.
