Premise 5: There are 10e63 junk(non-selectable) arrangements of CHNOPS in just one simple bio-structure (protein).


How do you determine what is "selectable" and what is not?

I am well aware of just so stories that people use in order to rationalize their beliefs....


Your math is a just-so story. Nobody has to "believe" in anything to question your math. Back up your math. Link it to reality.

The argument that I am talking about is just the tip of the iceberg.


Every ice cube doesn't have an iceberg below it.

You can repeat your mantra all you want, but it's not going to change the fact that individual organisms are what live, die, and reproduce, not populations. And in order to have evolution you need reproduction.


Reproduction involves two generations, the producer(s) and the product. The product is different from the individual producers. That is what drives evolution.
