Well because it is so hard for such a thing to happen, that has to mean, for fact, god exists. Let's parallel here. Life is like geotechnical engineering. You stand on the surface, but you want to know what is underneath you for your foundation to a large building. So you investigate the ground by drilling holes and taking samples. This is how life is. You investigate situations, because it is impossible to investigate the whole kit-n-ka-boddle, or excavating the entire site. So with the limited amount of info you have, you make a judgement on how the subsurface is. We'll use seepage as our variable. In none of the 100 borings did we encounter seepage, or water to late people. Yet, when we write the report do we say you will not encounter water because we didn't? ABSOLUTELY NOT! We will say, we did not encounter any seepage in any of the borings, however, it may be possible to encounter perched water on clay seams which may vary seasonally... etc. Why do we do this? Because you can never really know all that is down there by spacing holes. Even if you spaced holes only 20 feet apart, something can remain hidden until construction uncovers what is underneath the surface.
You see, doltmeister, the truth is the entire subsurface. When we bore into the subsurface, we are only peeking at a small infinitesimal portion of the truth. The more borings we drill, the more truth we uncover. We'll learn soil type, color, consistency, etc. But we can't know everything from the subsurface. Its impossible. So to say that you can't put all the atoms together to form a fly is hardly called evidence, because we don't know everything yet. You certainly haven't drilled enough borings into the truth. Because even when you think you have discovered all within the subsurface, there always remains something you have missed. And what you have missed is the truth and you can not ignore it. When you ignore the truth, you begin to become ignorant, which I must easily say, you have become the master of.
