1.6% of the North American population says that it isn’t improbable at all that digitally encoded and specifically sequenced instructions in DNA arose unaided out of inorganic gases.
Even though encoded information is worthless without a system that can process the information.
Even though the cell’s information-processing system "evolved" separately from the DNA information system.
These people say, “It was bound to happen in some universe. We’re just really lucky that it happened in ours.”
These people believe this is what happened and they believe it with as great a faith as anything found in any fundamentalist Christian. They must have this depth of faith or their belief system will collapse.
That’s what these people are like. It’s how they think.
I for one could never summon enough faith to be an atheist.
