Default Re: In the Beginning...

It is mathematically impossible, TB. The combinations needed for DNA to be formed can't be formed by casuality, not even in a trillion of a trillion years. Not to mention the problem of the spacial orientation of the proteins.

This is a fallacy that is very common today: they say that a bunch of monkeys in a billion years would type Shakespeare in a typing machine.

Certain structures can't be created by chance, because their development needs forces that are opposite to the ones working in billions of years. For example: your computer would never be created by chance on the surface of a planet, not even in a trillion years, because chance doesn't provide the actions and forces needed for the construction of a computer.

Maybe the sand blowing in a billion years would one day create a sand castle that looked like a computer, but NEVER a real one.

Same with DNA and life.
