Probability

Probability.

  Our unbelieving friends like to accuse us of not believing in science. Math is a science - one of the most pure sciences. Probability is part of this.
  Simple probability is 1 equals it will happen and 0 means it will not happen. If 0.50 is in the middle, then the chance of a particular thing happening would be 50%.
  Let's look at life from non-life. Sir Fred Hoyle, an atheist and Darwinist, calculated the chance of life coming from non-life was 1 in 10 to the 40,000th power, or 10 with 40,000 zeros after it. Let us plot that out over a mile. We start walking at 0.00 miles and when we walk one mile we would be at 1.0. The start of the mile is zero and the end of the mile is one. A mile has 5,289 feet; we convert that to inches we get 63,360 inches. Next we divide that he first number and we get 0.636 x 10 to the negative 39,995th.  What that looks like is 0.(place 39,995 zeros here)636th of an inch. We cannot see a distance that small but that is how far we would walk. The reality is that the probability for life coming from non-life is non-existent. It will not happen. To believe that life came from non-life is what atheists call blind faith.
  Sir Fred Hoyle stated, "Would you not say to yourself, 'Some super-calculating intellect must have designed the properties of the carbon atom, otherwise the chance of my finding such an atom through the blind forces of nature would be utterly minuscule.' A common sense interpretation of the facts suggests that a super-intellect has 'monkeyed' with physics, as well as with chemistry and biology, and that there are no blind forces worth speaking about in nature. The numbers one calculates from the facts seem to me so overwhelming as to put this conclusion almost beyond question." - Fred Hoyle  This is an interesting quote from an atheist.
