I was at the library just wandering around and saw this book on Evolution. I was curious. I wanted to see the other perspective.
it was interesting. So this guy was trying to figure out what he believed - and even then, he was stating some things as a FACT, not just a personal assumption or belief.
I didn't want to just go on what any one person is saying. So I did some research. (which is a challenge in itself considering how many articles written from biased perspectives there are out there). I just wanted facts. tbh, those are hard to find.
so I googled: How old is the world?
here's what i got:
^^ I have no problem with people stating their options. but when you google something like this and get this answer as a FACT - something is obviously wrong.
wanna know the chances of winning the national Powerball Lottery every day for 365 days in a row?
okay now, this is compared to life starting on it's own. just one thing...instead of just 2,881 zeros (above) imagine the chances as 1 out of 1,201,000 . . . then add 10,837 more zeros.
those are the chances of 18,000 letters of DNA forming together in the correct order and starting life. Not to mention the animo acids needed (and yet, scientists haven't been able to create the correct ones needed to start life. also, if any oxygen is present amino acids cannot be formed and yet, the earth shows that oxygen has been around since the beginning. sooo. how could life have formed?) Not to mention the cell membrane needed. Not to mention the chances of the protein having to be correct. Not to mention that heat is necessary to form proteinoids, but heat destroys proteins. as well as who knows what else we don't even know about.
basically. i've arrived at the conclusion that...it's impossible. yet, scientists are still saying this. saying it as a fact that the world and everything on it is the result from a supposed chemical explosion.
I dunno about you, but it seems to me that maybe this "missing link" they are searching for isn't some intermediate creature...maybe the missing link is God. The link the world has lost as it's grown further and further from Him. Impossible for random chance? I think so anyways. Impossible for God?

*this info is from online, books and mostly personal rambles. i am in no way picking on anyone, just a couple things i've found on my own journey and research. feel free to agree, or disagree!
if you survived this post, go you! what are your thoughts on the subject?
what are you looking forward to the most this summer?
