Re: Probability
The probability of one single protein molecule randomly forming on its own is 2.02 in 10^321.

No.

Of course, it's difficult to tell exactly what, if anything, you've calculated since you didn't give us the calculation. But I suspect that, if you've calculated anything, it's the odds of a protein molecule coming together in one fell swoop, rather than a step by step combining over a long period of time.

Now, if you'd care to actually provide the calculations, I'd be willing to look at them as see if I'm wrong. But I don't think I am.

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate
