This blog needs a new title

The word "probability" does not appear in the Bible, or so we learn from Conservapedia's List of missing words in the Bible.

I can only conclude that Einstein was right, and God does not play dice.

I know it's annoying when someone takes a joke seriously, but I couldn't resist pointing out that while "probability" doesn't appear in reasonable translations of the bible, "chance" does, as in Ecclesiastes 9:11:

"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."

So not only does god play dice, the bible says he forces every human to play too.

Not to mention casting lots below the cross.

I notice they neglect to mention that "abortion" doesn't appear in the Bible.

Dear Reader, On the basis that the calculation of probabilities is the mathematical expression of chance, may I ask if anyone knows of a formula for working out the probability of chance-appearance of "life" anywhere in or elsewhere outside the Universe?
Note: 1)Under "chance-appearance" understood its alternative possibility, i.e.: creation by an agent outside of the Universe/s and outside life itself.
2)The bases for such a calculation could assume a simplest form of imaginary protein molecule, with their constituent atoms equal to 2,000.
The atomic weight of these atoms equal to 10. The molecular weight is 20 000.
Add to these: the molecular dissymmetry degree of 0.9 for simlicity. My Email Address: ffkish@gmail.com and my published Name: Orion. (I have bought "The Big Questions", which is stimulating the mind).
