No chance by chance


 

 

No chance by chance

 

 

 Dears

Please listen carefully

And let maths speaks

 

For an “average sized” single protein

To form by chance

From a group of amino acids

The probability is:

 

Not one in a million

Not one in a billion

Not one in a trillion

Not even one in zillion

Not one in zillion… zillion… zillion

Zillion… zillion… zillion

 

And I don’t even know

What zillion is

 

The probability is:

 One in

A number that we can’t even read

 

That consists of one

And in front of it

Three hundred zeros!

 

In mathematics

If the probability is smaller

Than one in

10000000000000000000000000000000000000000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

000000000000000000000000000000

(150 zeros)

 

It is accepted as a zero probability

 

 

But wait

 

This is not

The end of the story

 

That is … only

Just one

Humble protein

 

If we explore more:

One of the smallest bacteria

Ever discovered

Have 600 proteins

 

What about a human cell

We need millions of proteins

 

We also need:

Nucleic acids

 Carbohydrates

Lipids

 Vitamins

Electrolytes

 And many other chemicals

 

Arranged in a specific proportion

 Harmony

 And design

 In terms of both structure

 And function

Don’t you think that

Saying that all this is accidental

Is a little bit OTT

 

This is beyond probability

 

If not

 

I want to ask you

 One simple question

Just do me a favour

 

And make me

 

A fly
