Winning 3000 Consecutive Lotteries

When thinking of the “Theory of Evolution” we often forget to take a look at the math. When we  just look at the science argument, we miss the stronger math argument against evolution.

Evolution calls for random mutations, but each mutation must reach a completed level in order to go to a higher degree of development. It is therefore critical that the reader does not think of evolution as a single event with a probability of 10-300,000.

For example, if there are 3,000 species, between the first complex animal and human DNA, then each of these ancestor species had to be consecutive, meaning one after the other, because they are all our ancestor species.

Just like our grandfather (our father's father) and our father cannot both be born in the same year, our 3,000th ancestor species (starting with our oldest ancestor species with complex DNA) must have existed prior to our 2,999th ancestor species. Our 2,999th ancestor species had to exist prior to our 2,998th ancestor species. And so on.

Thus, human evolution, from the DNA of our oldest complex ancestor species to the DNA of human beings, would be like winning "3,000 consecutive or sequential (i.e. one after the other) lotteries," where the probability of each was 10-100!!!

Thus, the theory of evolution consists of 3,000 true "consecutive or sequential lotteries," each with a probability of 10-100. The number 10-100 is technically not an impossible probability, but let us study some examples of just how big it really is.

Suppose there was a lottery in which a 10-sided dice was rolled 100 times. In order to win this lottery you had to roll a '1' for all 100 rolls. In other words, you had to roll a '1' for 100 consecutive rolls, including the first roll, the second roll, the third roll, the fourth roll, etc.

In other words, in 50 billion attempts, the closest to 100 consecutive '1's in a row was 10 in a row.

 There is no word in the English language to describe just how unlikely that the theory of evolution describes the beginning and development of everything!! (R. Webster Kehr)
