Probability of the Origins of Life by random chance
- Evolution theorizes that the origin of life occurred when the universe (it is not known where it came from) had nothing it grew massive energy and exploded into everything. Things cooled down (over billions of years) and stars and planets formed such as earth. Over billions of years on earth common elements like hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen (no explanation how these “common” elements formed) randomly formed long and complex molecular chains. Then over millions of years and perhaps millions of trials by random chance, these chemicals (in a primordial water body) emerged from non-living chemicals to life! However, no explanation is provided as to how the original “simple life form” procured the DNA needed to reproduce itself.
The Academy of Evolutionary Metaphysics states, “Life began when one of these complex organic molecules began reacting with the other molecules around it in an unusual way. It was able to attract all of the pieces that it needed to assemble an identical copy of itself. The copy then split away from the original and began to assemble its own new copy.”
- This statement has never been observed to occur scientifically and is it a mathematical impossibility.
Odds created by ordered systems are mathematically impossible
- Ten flash cards numbered one through ten mixed up randomly and laid out would have only a 1 in 3,628,800 to one chance of coming out ordered in sequence: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Such a number is represented as “10!”.
- To take this to an ordered system of 100 the numbers skyrocket to 10158 (which is one followed by 158 zeros) to one. A system of this magnitude would be inconceivable to have occurred as a mathematical impossibility is considered to be at about 1050 to 1.
- To grasp the size of this number astro-physicists estimate that there are 1080 subatomic particals in the entire universe. Even if you assumed the universe to be 30 billion years old there are only 1018 seconds that have passsed since the “big bang”. Even if you could do millions of tests per second for 30 billion years the possibility of only a 100 component ordered system forming by random chance is mathematically impossible.
- As another example, if you have ever played Yatzee with 5 dice you could play “origin of life” Yatzee too. However, you would need 207 dice and you would need to hit a prespecified number all in one roll. Good luck!
DNA is the most complex thing in the known universe
- DNA has 3.2 Billion base pairs on a single strand.
- That strand would measure nearly 6 feet long and it would take about 20,000 strands to be a thick as a human hair.
- An entire strand of DNA fits into every cell (except the red blood cells) in a space about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
- These base pairs in DNA function as letters in an alphabet: A, T, G, and C. Each letter is comprised of nucleotides but think of this as the ink in which the letters are printed. These letters form words and information and have been called the most complex information in the universe: the written source code for all life.
- If you printed out the information stored on a single strand of DNA you would need a lot of paper. Printed to 500-page paperback book size the books would stack some 200 feet tall.
- No life form can live without DNA it contains the information for self-regulation, self-repair, error test, reproduction, and all biological function.
Earth is in the ‘Goldilocks zone’ not by “chance”
Characteristics of earth render random chance to the realm of absolute impossibility with profound order and design:
- Existence of liquid water at the Earth’s surface—neither too much nor too little—that is in liquid form;
- Proximity to the sun—neither too much heat nor too little;
- System of plate tectonics that enables the carbon-silicate cycle regulating temperature;
- The right size—large enough to hang on to its atmosphere, but not so large to hold on to too much atmosphere and consequently too much heat;
- The moon’s stabilizing effect on our planetary rotation, which prevents the poles from shifting unexpectedly
- The atmosphere and ozone protect earth from harmful solar radiation;
- Axis is just right to maintain our temperatures
- Earth has many heavy and complex elements which are not found in abundance in the universe but are here on earth;
- Many more examples…earth is specially created for life.
