: : : The amount of information required to define a single functional enzyme is shown to be more than chance combinations could produce from the entire known universe in the course of a quadrillion years.

: : ***That "may" be true, but you are using two unknowns that totally change the equation. : : 1. the known universe (exactly how "far" does it go : : 2. that there is a restriction of "time" at some point.

: : Lets replace these to factors, now add up the probability of an enzime, presto! now we have no restrictions on thier occuring randomly.

: : Once these factors are accepted, so many of the outcomes of current equations will display how easy it is for the things that occur to occur in theory... And, well, i do not thing religions can survive such an adjustment.

: bzrd here: Is there anything that is not possible? If not then, the theory that life can originate from inert matter is unfalsifiable, and therefore disqualified as a viable scientific construct. In short, there is no evidence that would convince you (short of God flying an airplane around your house with a banner that says "I am here!") that there is a Creator.

***There are many many impossabilities. But also a few rules about reality 1. You cannot "prove" something to exist when it does not. 2. You cannot "disprove" something that exists. 3. Perceptions can fool one into believing that the opposite of reality is true.

In my "opinion" god cannot fly an airplane with a banner because he does not exist, in your opinion god would not do so even if he did exist, so we both agree that it does not matter whether we believe in god or not, we will never know! Unless of course you subscribe to hell/afterlife.
