[to a poster who asked for the numbers behind his assertion that the odds of life evolving with no intelligent intervention were essentially zero]
I'm glad your curious mind was attracted by my theory of infinitesimal odds of nature. Hey, it's a theory based on evidence verified by extensive calculations using well-proven formula of stochastic statistics, among other branches of mathematics, and data from gene sequencing work of genetics scientists, data from the Hubble telescope, data from radio-telescopes thru-out the earth, data from human population around the earth, and best of all, data collected from the billion web sites, stored in millions of servers that Google Corp. has graciously provided access. It's repeatable and falsifiable and it has predictive power, and all the other properties a science ought to possess.
Given the sheer volume of data and the advanced level of mathematics that is understood by less than 0.00001% of scientists, I'm not going to annoy people on this forum with a comprehensive therefore lengthy essay.
