Re: Probability

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.

To be exact???? Are you sure is isn't 10^133 +4? or +7?

Extremely improbable, based on what?

We have one Universe that is laid out like it is, so the probability looks like 1.0 to me.

Your numbers are gibberish if you don't show us how you calculated them.

Re: Diversification of self-replicating molecules
There's a difference between cannot happen in nature and do not happen in nature.
We can produce many chemical reactions in the laboratory that do not happen in nature.

Curiously, we have evidence that all the chemical reactions that occur in all life processes do happen in nature, so what's your point?

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq
