Never in even a trillion years. Mathematicians say that any odd greater than 1 in 1 million os mathematically insignificant."
Can someone help me to refute this?
I was thinking the same thing ... the biggest fallacy in the mutation argument is that the theist thinks that mutation = harmful.
They couldn't be more wrong. mutation more clearly means a 'change'.
As for flipping coins, even if you flipped a coin a million times, and it landed heads a million times ... so what? Just because there is a number with a very large exponent after it to describe the odds of an event, that does NOT mean it can't happen. Because it obviously did (in the hypothetical scenario.)
Or there is a chance the coin could land on it's side ... thus negating the necessary 50 / 50 chance of heads / tails.
So to say even with a coin that is both heads on each side ... it will always land heads, is simply false.
Odds to me seem meaningless when you are trying to state whether or not something actually happened. They are only good at predicting future events that have not yet happened.
Reminds of the probability Jesus rose from the dead ... I don't care HOW many times a man dies ... is buried for 3 days, and rises again ... he could die and resurrect himself a million times. That still doesn't prove anything remotely like a God.
As Christopher Hitchens says ... "I'll give you all your miracles ... the virgin birth, the resurrection ... all of it ... You're still right where you were before. Holding an empty sack."
