Quote# 87397

Ok...this is symptomatic of retardation now...Our planet is hyper-unique due to some outside force. We did not start from "Two Ti-i-i-i-i-i-iny amoeba in a warm pond" but let's say we did...for that is moot in relation to my point which is:

No matter how many times you roll the dice, you will never come close to replicating life. On the spiritual side, God has not made any others, on the scientific side, it was a chance in a googleplex to the googleplex power that it worked. Even if chance decided to travel sequentially, and not repeat itself many times over, time does not permit this miracle to occur again. write a comic book or make a movie, let your alternate planet exist there, because it absolutely will not exist in this cosmos or a parallel cosmos. If you are not spiritual, you are a mighty lonely meatpuppet...adrift in a sea of black, saddled upon a spinning sphere that hangs on nothing. Life is short...live it long!

Probability fail.
The odds of life originating on this planet are 1 to 1 because we are here. There is no evidence for this god you speak of, so your point is invalid.

1. You use a lot of word salad.
2. You have no evidence to back up your claim of no alien biospheres existing.
3. Scientists have in fact performed experiments where they produced simple organic formations from chemicals, similar to the "spark of life" in prehistory.

'if you are not spiritual, you are a mighty lonely meatpuppet...adrift in a sea of black, saddled upon a spinning sphere that hangs on nothing'

Translation: I am scared of death and being insignificant, so i believe a lovely story that makes the bad thoughts go away. Gotcha.

Watch out, we've got a badass over here. Thinks he's hot shit because he use the word "googleplex" - which actually is the name of the Google corporate HQ. The math tern is googolplex.

5/18/2012 12:20:57 PM


Do you know what a googleplex is?

And you got the wrong quote: Life is short...live it large!

Oh please. Amoebas are way more sophisticated than the first cells. But can I ask you something? Have to seen the rest of the universe? Have you been to every other planet with the capacity to support life and discovered that for some reason abiogenesis and evolution just never took hold there like it did here? Because if your answer is anything other than "Yes" you are speaking from ignorance.

Flaunting ignorance. It's good exercise, and it impresses everyone.

The chances of winning the 6 out of 49 lottery are minimal, about 1 : 15.5 million.

Let's put that in a picture:

Somewhere along the highway between Boston, MA and Washington DC there is a quarter dollar coin on the ground in the breakdown lane. Only one quarter dollar coin. You are driving from Boston to Washington. At some point along the way you veer into the breakdown lane, slam on the breaks, stop, open the door, stick out your hand and touch the ground. You can only do this once.

The chances that that one single quarter dollar coin is exactly where you stick out your hand after stopping are about 1 : 15.5 million, the same as winning the 6 out of 49 lottery.

Impossible, right?

Well, every week or so one or more people hit the six correct numbers.

If life is an inherent part of the universe, I'd say the chances of it evolving somewhere are better than winning the lottery.

Well sorry to be pedantic, but the chances of winning the lottery are 1 : 1... for the winner, and zero for everyone else. It's just that nobody can know in advance.

Fortunately, reality is not bound by your personal incredulity.

That's the way it happened because that's what the evidence supports. The universe doesn't care whether or not it fits with your millennia-old fairy tale, and facts aren't here so you can sleep soundly at night.

Jezebel's Evil Sister

What are the odds that life would evolve on Earth?


Because, you know, it happened.

I've replicated life three times.

Oh, sorry, that's all the time we have for today on 'Stupid Things Christians Believe'. Thank you for playing!

What does Google's main building have to do with probability?

Or are you pretending to be clever by throwing around words you don't understand and misspelling Googolplex?

5/19/2012 10:42:57 AM


It's Fark, people.
As Op's bio says, "I'm just in this for the fun...wish i was funnier but alas..."
Not Funny, not Fundy either.

"No matter how many times you roll the dice, you will never come close to replicating life"
Only a virgin without proper sex ed would say something so naive.

5/19/2012 7:47:14 PM


You clearly haven't rolled the dice enough.
