Creation vs Evolution in the infinite

That evolution is improbable does not make it impossible. Indeed, the very fact that something is acknowledged to be improbable (ie having a low chance of occuring) makes its occurrence absolutely certain.

Strange, but true.

What if you roll a die? The probability that any one side comes up is 1 in 6. The probability that a 6 will come up if you roll the die twice is pretty close to 1 in 3; and if you roll it three times, it gets pretty close to 1 in 2 or 50%. Now, if you roll that same die 1000 times, you’d guess that it’s pretty much a certainty that a ‘6’ will come up at least once, right?

It’s the same thing with evolution. If you assume that the probability for evolution occurring is 1/10000000000th of 1%, that means that it probably won’t happen today. Indeed, it probably won’t happen for a long long time. But, if you have an infinite period of time, its occurrence at some stage becomes certain.

It’s easy to say that we don’t have an infinite amount of time – which is true. But the Universe – and God – does. If there really is just one world and one God, it’s not like it’s waiting for anything or anyone to use the Universe next!

In my opinion, religion is great, and I sincerely hope that you find a religion that works for you. We ought remember that God made us to worship and adore him without superstition… Religions, through their rituals and symbolism sometimes allow us to forget that, and in doing so lead us away from the Truth.

To deny evolution is to deny facts. To blindly accept evolution without noting its limitations is to believe in things that have not been proven – which is just another religion.

In my opinion – and please accept my right to be wrong – God wants us to pursue truth.
