"The Anthropic Principle is claimed by many to provide a possible explanation for the observed smallness of the cosmological constant. However, correlations between the value of the cosmological constant and the existence of life can be demonstrated only under quite restrictive assumptions. Even allowing for a possible correlation, we demonstrate here that suggesting any such correlation is in fact causative is a much more subtle issue, and in general this latter claim will not be implied by the former."
