Biological Intelligent Design Mathematical Origin of Life


A living organism emerging by chance as imagined by naturalism and evolution is not just absurd but is fantastically absurd. Genetic research has revealed that the complexity within all living forms make such a theory laughable. There are no “simple” life forms as imagined by early evolutionary popularizers like Charles Darwin. To envision life emerging by spontaneous random chance from non-living chemicals based on modern science requires a complete suspension of your brain, all common sense, reason, and a reliance on pure serendipity and miracle. Such an idea is nonsense—life was designed.

Genetics have revealed that all cellular construction is carried out by the function of DNA using informational blueprints. Each strand of human DNA measures a staggering 69 inches long, consists of over 3.2 billion base pair elements (letters). Amazingly this structure fits, tightly wound, is found within every cell in the human body (except red blood cells). DNA communicates, translates, and executes requirements of the living cell to grow, heal, and die. Every human has literally trillions of cells in within their bodies doing this process continually.

The Academy of Evolutionary Metaphysics tells us a just so story about the initial formation of self replicating living cells. The quote reveals the idiocy that random and spontaneous processes can do anything, let alone form life:

Life began when one of these complex organic molecules began reacting with the other molecules around it in an unusual way. It was able to attract all of the pieces that it needed to assemble an identical copy of itself. The copy then split away from the original and began to assemble its own new copy.”

DNA works to self-modify, self-manufacture, run self-diagnostics, self-repair, self-program (read and write), and self-corrects reproduction errors. DNA is the most complex information system in the known universe.

Basic odds can be easily explained with dice.  One six sided dice has a 1 in 6 chance of rolling any number 1-6 by chance.  When an additional die is added the odds are multiplied.  Two dice are 6 X 6 = 36 or a 1 in 36 chance of a specified number occurring 2-12.  As each additional die is added the odds increase or the likelihood decreases.

Simple odds review

In order to understand the idea of the emergence of life we must look at math which involves equations that include an ordered pair.  As an example, in an ordered pair of three, say three playing cards numbered 2, 3, and 4 are shuffled. The likelihood they will come out in the desired order (in this case coming out in order “2”-“3”-“4”) are expressed on a calculator as 3 x! . This is a a 1 in 6 chance.  On ordered pair is necessary because the assembly of amino acids or even protein chains must have initially randomly and spontaneous formed when the first “protocells” emerged.

When and ordered assembly is required then the math requires ordered pair mathematical odds.  

With each increase in our ordered paid the mathematical of likelihood odds goes down exponentially.  As an example an ordered pair of 5 is a 1 in 120, but an ordered pair of 10 jumps to a 1 in 3,628,800!  If we consider an ordered pair of 100 the numbers blow up your calculator as 1 in approximately 9.3157

or a 1 in 9,300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 chance of occurring

Average across species 337.75

The numbers shown in gray represent the odds of randomly assembling a protein chain of a mere 100 amino acids– which is a very small chain, average protein chain is over 300 over species including the “lowly” bacteria. The largest protein chain is over 34,500 in length! Here our numbers ignore the random and spontaneous chance that the universe, our solar system, our planet earth, chemicals, atomic structures and functions, gravity, matter, water, atmosphere, and most everything are mathematically excluded from these odds.

Although it is an exercise in futility, if we examine a quest to determine mathematically such odds have been approximated as 1 in 10650.

Anything that reaches beyond 1050 to 1 is considered a mathematical impossibility called mathematically absurd – meaning impossible and absurd to consider any other outcome.
