“The probability of getting one protein molecule by chance would be the same as a blindfolded person finding one marked grain of sand in the Sahara Desert three times in a row.”
“The probability of getting one protein molecule, by chance, is the same as a blindfolded person choosing the correct marked atom from the whole universe.”
These two comments highlight the improbability of, well, you know, Chance being responsible for generating one protein molecule. Richard Dawkins, who on the one hand claims to shy away from outcomes with a high improbability, on the other hand says that the rise of life from non life is a gimme.
To get life, you need about 200 proteins - together. Here’s the catch.
DNA is dependent on proteins for its production, but
Proteins are dependent on DNA for their production.
Atheists see no problem because, if “nature did it” well, then, it’s a gimme.
Why? Nature brings order. So say the atheists.
In reality, nature left to itself brings disorder.
Well, ok, that SEEMS true, says your friendly neighbourhood atheist - unless - you give nature lots and lots of time. Then for some reason, the opposite happens. According to atheists, if you give nature lots and lots of time, and I mean A LOT of time, then, again according to atheists, The Second Law of Thermodynamics no longer applies and order comes from disorder - naturally.
So say atheists. In fact, “It’s a gimme.”
