There are 1E93 possible combinations of amino acids that will produce a functional cytochrome c protein, and that is just one protein. When you expand this to all functional proteins, your 1E43 calculation appears to be way off.

By a few magnitude.
This is an example of the inability of people to understand probability and really large numbers.
Lets take a deck of 52 cards. There are more potential ways that deck can be shuffled than there are atoms on earth.
52! is a huge number
8.06581752 × 10^67

Every time you pick up a well shuffled deck, you are almost certainly picking up a combination that has never existed before.

Here is a quick tutorial.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Maybe you should actually learn about the TOE before you try to attack it. What you are attacking is not the TOE. I have no idea what it is you are attacking. Please show some source that agrees with what you think the TOE is.

Re: Predictions and Discoveries
by showing the empirical ratio of meaningful information to total sequence space of information that represent existing bio-structures and which is in line with available resources in evolution.

Can you even explain your word salad? You need to define what you mean by these words you strung together.
