I think I just figured it out! And I AM the first: The chicken was first!

Let us imagine ourselves standing in a laboratory stocked with beakers and test tubes containing all sorts of chemical compounds. Then suppose an earthquake has just occurred upsetting the shelved vessels, sending their contents spilling onto the laboratory floor. It would be a very strange coincidence indeed to find new life forms generating themselves where none had existed before.
You might say, 'Your analogy didn't account for time - these organisms need time to evolve.' We ask, 'How much time should we have allowed? Was there enough time since the beginning of the universe to allow for their self-induced formation?'
(your analogy didn't account for many necessary conditions for something as chaotic and unpredictable as evolution. evolution isn't the religious study of science, its the only accountable action which has been proven true for billions of years through the many tests that confirm chaotic change (not 6000 years btw).
He determined the value of probability by considering the size of the material and the time necessary for the random formation to occur. He calculated that the probability of forming even a simplified protein molecule was approximately 1 in 5 x 10 e+320 !
(this isn't scientific proof, its statistics, statistics is the religion of science; inaccurate)
The size of the material necessary to produce that almost zero probability would have been a sphere with a diameter of approximately 6 x 10 e+176 miles - about 10 e+63 times bigger than the imagined size of the universe. Finally, the time necessary for the molecule to form was 10 e+243 billion years. This was far greater than the supposed age of the universe - only about 2 billion years.
(try 13.9 billion years ago minimum, and only connecting to the theory of the big bang as the beginning (i for one don't think it was the beginning, just the beginning of our universe). google information sometime kid...its pretty easy...)
He concluded that the universe was neither old enough, nor big enough to allow for the random formation of even a simple protein molecule. It was impossible for the universe to have created itself, and for life to randomly form. We must then consider another course. There is a Creator who created the universe.
wrong wrong wrong. that was one of the worst things i've ever read, thank you.
if a person is in a box all his life, never to hear even a word about god; is that person going to hell?
