He answered with "the math", what he was referring to is that math with biology can't support it.
One biological scientist once said the Darwin theory is so mathematically impossible it's odds of happening are like 1 out of the number that
represents all the atoms in the universe. Nobody knows what that number actually is. But it's a hyperbole to make a point.
That "one acquaintance" is horribly wrong
And what odds related to evolution are you talking about?
Respectfully, I have to disagree with your point of view.
From an evolutionary point of view and assuming that ALL
changes within a given specie are driven almost entirely by selective environmental
pressures acting on random mutational changes (Darwinism), then there is NO
way of escaping the unassailable fact that mathematics is
within the random processes generating mutations.
We even have sophisticated branches of mathematics dealing with this very area of random behaviour ... statistics, probability theory, game theory,
In fact, every casino in the world and every game of chance ever invented are ruled by these mathematical areas ... and what nature is doing during
every random mutation is the equivalent of rolling a die or picking a card from a deck or spinning a wheel ... basically relying on nothing but the
luck of the draw.
Again, using insulin with it's 153 nucleotide sequences as a base example.
The equivalent of what nature somehow has fluked (and not just once but with the total of 20,000 to 25,000 human proteins) is to go into a casino.
There they have a special die with only 4 faces. The faces are marked A, C, G and T.
Your task is to roll that die continuously, time after time after time and try to match the nucleotide sequence forming insulin. This is essentially
what nature had to do.
I'd be willing to bet ANYTHING
that no matter how many times you did the die experiment, that you would never achieve the correct 153
sequence. The odds against you succeeding are 8 x 10^90 against and my money perfectly safe !
Look, truthfully this is such a simple idea to get your heads around, that it surprising that so many people stick so dogmatically to their unfounded
and unproven belief that nature can somehow beat such astronomical odds and beat them easily.
And remember, insulin is just ONE
out of the approximately 25,000 proteins in the human genome.
So not only did nature beat astronomical odds once, nature beat them 25,000 times !!!
C'mon people ... common sense and logic ....
Oh, and before I finish, thought I'd toss this in as well
Where does the information that is essential to successfully create the 3D structure of the human body get stored ?
As an example, take the human heart.
An extremely complex 4 chambered, hollow structure that is 3D in physical layout. Every human, barring disease, has a heart designed to the very same
My question is ... where does the blueprint info to build this structure in 3D to be found ? The only conceivable storage device is DNA. And yet as
far as I'm aware, no geneticist would admit that this is so. So where does this info come from ? And the info for eye structure .. and the info for
skull structure .. and the info for rib structure ... and the info for arm, hand and finger structure ... and ... and ... and ...
And if by some chance this design info IS
stored somewhere within the DNA, how did it get there ? surely not by our old friend, random mutation
? If so, then again, the rate of random mutations must be beyond belief to have achieved all this in just 3.8 billion years !
