Suppose a million alphabet cards fell from a plane. What do you think the mathematical chances would be that they would end up spelling your name when they finally came to rest on the ground?...If the cards were dropped a second time from five miles higher, would the extra time it took for the second group of cards to fall provide a greater chance for the cards to spell your name? Not at all. Instead, the more time involved would tend to cause the cards to be scattered over an even greater area...Consider this when it comes to the creation of the universe and the crown of creation—man.

Just as there are aerodynamic laws that would tend to separate the cards even more the longer they took to fall, so there are also laws of science—physics, biology, chemistry, etc.—which would make it more difficult, the longer the span of time, for life to suddenly appear by chance.[1]
