    Statistical Thuggery by the Godless Left

    The Godless Left endlessly banters its statistical thuggery about. They don't know what they're talking about.

    Here is some of the nonsense from one of the chief spokesmen of the Godless Left, Richard Dawkins.

    This is from Blind Watchmaker


    P. 46 “I don’t know who it was first pointed out that, given enough time, a monkey bashing away at random on a typewriter could produce all the works of Shakespeare.”
    (No it couldn’t. Not ever, ever. Dawkins provides his own proof, contradicting himself yet again:

    P. 315: “Dover’s alleged rival to natural selection could never work, not just never in a million years, but never in a million times longer than the universe has existed, never in a million universes each lasting a million times as long again.”


    The reference is one chance in 10 to the 301 power. Our Shakespeare-typing monkey would have to trump such impossible odds in trying to type merely the first 301 letters of the FIRST PAGE of the FIRST BOOK of Shakespeare, or one chance in 26 letters to the 301 power.


    So you see, Richard Dawkins claims that an event with probability of one in 10 to the 301 power is impossible.
    And yet Godless Leftists, including Dawkins himself, attempt to make the claim that anything with a non-zero probability is "possible."


    Nonsense. Utter garbage.


    10 to the 50th grains of sand would fill fifteen spheres the size of our solar system. And you think you're going to find the unique grain of sand, in fifteens such spheres full of sand, while blindfolded, on your first and only try?


    It's ONE chance in 10 to the 50, not an "INFINITE NUMBER" of chances.

    You know, I feel as though you've already made one or two other threads about this book.

    P. 46 “I don’t know who it was first pointed out that, given enough time, a monkey bashing away at random on a typewriter could produce all the works of Shakespeare.”

    You have already argued this many times on this forum and many times over it has been refuted.

    P. 315: “Dover’s alleged rival to natural selection could never work, not just never in a million years, but never in a million times longer than the universe has existed, never in a million universes each lasting a million times as long again.”

    And that's the most pants-on-head idiotic thing I've read all day. You know, sometimes you need to take these things a little LESS LITERALLY. Dawkins obviously wasn't making a direct comparison between the likelihood of Shakespeare-typing monkeys and the probability of Intelligent Design being true.


    Nonsense. Utter garbage.
    A good way to describe your feigned intellectualism.

    Again, completely and utterly pointless. The evolution and genesis of life relied on more than "just one chance". Why don't you pull that "Cytochrome-C" argument out of your ass again?
