Message #: 18

Once again, at least one member gave the message a "5", but not a POTM nomination.

A snippet from the message:

Setting aside the improbability of protein molecules and DNA strands forming on their own, the chance that our universe could/would be laid out the way it is, is extremely improbable. It's 1 in 10^133, to be exact.

Now, we know how dice roll. We know how cards get shuffled and dealt. We know how a roulette wheel turns. We know how lottery balls produce the winning numbers. But just what the hell do we know about how the universe came to become the exact way that it did?

Dwise once again managed to pull off doing an eloquent reply to a message that struck me as being a hopeless pile of baloney. Maybe a fair amount of tangential material, but I still find it to be an interesting read.
