If we add
together the three probabilities (that of amino acids being
laid out correctly, that of their all being left-handed, and
that of their all being joined by peptide links), then we
come face to face with the astronomical figure of 1 in 10950.
This is a probability only on paper. Practically speaking,
there is zero chance of its actually happening. As we saw
earlier, in mathematics, a probability smaller than 1 in 1050
is statistically considered to have a "zero" probability of
Even if we suppose that amino acids have combined
and decomposed by a "trial and error" method, without losing
any time since the formation of the earth, in order to form
a single protein molecule, the time that would be required
for something with a probability of 10950 to happen
would still hugely exceed the estimated age of the earth.
The ribosome reads the messenger RNA, and arranges
the amino acids according to the information it receives
there. In the illustrations, the consecutive order of
the [ val, cys, and ala amino acids ], established by
the ribosome and transfer RNA, can be seen. All proteins
in nature are produced by this complex process. No protein
comes about by "accident."
The conclusion to be drawn from all this is that
evolution falls into a terrible abyss of improbability even
when it comes to the formation of a single protein.
One of the foremost proponents of the theory
of evolution, Professor Richard Dawkins, states the impossibility
the theory has fallen into in these terms:
sort of lucky event we are looking at could be so wildly
improbable that the chances of its happening, somewhere
in the universe, could be as low as one in a billion billion
billion in any one year. If it did happen on only one planet,
anywhere in the universe, that planet has to be our planet-because
here we are talking about it.249
This admission by one of evolution's foremost
authorities clearly reflects the logical muddle the theory
of evolution is built on. The above statements in Dawkins's
book Climbing Mount Improbable are a striking example of circular
reasoning which actually explains nothing: "If we are here,
then that means that evolution happened."
As we have seen, even the most prominent of the
proponents of evolution confess that the theory is buried
in impossibility when it comes to accounting for the first
stage of life. But how interesting it is that, rather than
accept the complete unreality of the theory they maintain,
they prefer to cling to evolution in a dogmatic manner! This
is a completely ideological fixation.
