The probability of randomly forming a small protein molecule with 150 amino acids is about 1 x 10^180.

Even the most primitive cell has
• A cell wall
• The ability to maintain and expand the cell wall (grow)
• The ability to process "food" (other molecules floating outside the cell) to create energy
• The ability to split itself to reproduce
What is the simple explanation for the random, spontaneous generation of a cell in the absence of an intelligent designer?

Three billion years to form that first anerobic cell, then half a billion to mutate into the first oxygen breathing ones before life took off. What more do you need? Pictures on the moon?

You appear to contend that given enough time, accumulated effects from microevolution lead to macroevolutionary changes. The problem is microevolution just shuffles the deck; it doesn't creat new orders of genetic information. Sorry, time does not solve your dilema.

It's not a dilemma. You accept inches, but deny miles.

How exactly did you get that number? Nevermind I know how you came up with it. You can only get that number if you specify one specific sequence, but why would you do that?

Thank you for proving yet again that you really don't understand what we're talking about.

Time has to solve the dilemma, that's one of the reasons the accepted age of the earth has grown by over 4 billion years in the last 200...

Spontaneous generation has been proven wrong in so many ways throughout history, but somehow still seems to persist through evolution.

If a scientist says something it must be true, even if it doesn't stand up against critical analysis?

it does stand up against critical analysis. every damn time.

not in your eyes, though, b/c you are simply thick, and obviously have no interest in engaging evidence-based logic.

it's this simple, really. you and your ilk represent the end of human intelligence, and you are completely fine with that. this is sad and dangerous. I wish you were not allowed to vote or hold any sort of public influence. I wouldn't want your inferior children perverting the space of my children. that sort of thing.
