If we theorize the chances of life evolving from one single protein, then the odds against having one single "creator" is high. But if the natural order of the cosmos dictates this to be true then perhaps "God" minipulated the atom to his own design. If we leave a river to nature, it will flow the same path or until nature dictates a new course, which could take years and years. But, if someone dams the river and changes it course to fit it's enviorment, then there is an interrruption to the natural order of things. It was minipulated to suit different needs. A Dr. Howell, professor of Anthropology at Harvard has stated that certain human histories should not have evolved as quickly. He also stated that after 35 AD (after Christ's crucifixion) that cultures expanded in a rapid rate compared to the previous 2500 years! I somewhat believe in his theory that perhaps there was a "interruption" in the order of things. If we follow the the theory of random chances of any event, we must also look into the possibility of "devine" intervention. Also for the record, believing in God is more of a spiritual thing.
