What are the statistical odds-against the"spontaneous-generation theory?

What do the scientist say - John Eccles, winner of the Nobel Prize and one of the foremost brain scientists in this century speaks of one chance in 1010,000 as being "infinitely improbable.....Carl Sagan and other prominent scientists have estimated the chance of man evolving at roughly 1 chance in... show more What do the scientist say - John Eccles, winner of the Nobel Prize and one of the foremost brain scientists in this century speaks of one chance in 1010,000 as being "infinitely improbable.....Carl Sagan and other prominent scientists have estimated the chance of man evolving at roughly 1 chance in 102,000,000,000.34......Harold Morowitz, a Yale University physicist,calculated the odds of a single bacterium emerging from the basic building blocks necessary were 1 chance in 10100,000,000,000.24.......Dr. David J. Rodabough, Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Missouri, estimated the more realistic chance that life would spontaneously generate (even on 1023 planets) as only one chance in 102,999,940.21......scientists Walter L. Bradley and Charles Thaxton, point out that the probability of assembling amino acid building blocks into a functional protein is approximately one chance in 4.9 X 10191.16.....(continue below)
Update: (continue) - scientist Harold F.

Blum, writing in Time’s Arrow and Evolution, wrote that, "The spontaneous formation of a polypeptide of the size of the smallest known proteins seems beyond all probability.".....David J. Rodabaugh, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri, shows the probability that a simple living organism could be produced by mutations "is so small as to constitute a scientific impossibility" — "the chance that it could have happened anywhere in the universe,is less than 1 [chance] in 102,999,942."7....Moshe Trop, Ph.D., with the Department of Life Sciences, Bar-Ilan University, Ramat Gan, Israel, concludes,"All calculations made of the probability [that life could evolve by chance, lead to the conclusion that] there could have been no possibility of the random appearance of life....(NOTE - All evidence cited orginates from the science community)....(continue)
Update 2: (continue) As shown from the scientist cited above the question is, what are the odds against evolution?...please offer comments!
Update 3: To BNP - Lets use your first point..."odds of an event occuring" ...lets not confuse the question with ...non-sense "babble" ...
Update 4: to BNP - According the mathematicians....luck is more like NEVER HAPPENING.....(unless you cite a "cause" for the event..and not the god-of-good-luck..
Update 5: To ejc_11 - I personally think evolution is a farce..A religion for the atheist.....So I agree with your statement(s)
Update 6: To science_geek - YOUR ANSWER IS MISLEADING SO Stop with the "sematic" bs..It is very possible to calculate the possibilities of amino-acids combining to form protein which is the essential BUILDING BLOCKS for life.......Since we KNOW the number of amino acids that are needed(20)..A typical protein is... show more To science_geek - YOUR ANSWER IS MISLEADING SO Stop with the "sematic" bs..It is very possible to calculate the possibilities of amino-acids combining to form protein which is the essential BUILDING BLOCKS for life.......Since we KNOW the number of amino acids that are needed(20)..A typical protein is made up of a chain of 445 left-handed amino acids.and we know that only left handed strands are used..We can now apply the laws of probability to this. The chances of an average protein consisting of 445 amino acids forming by chance are one chance out of 10^123...There are 124 amino acids in ribonuclease and they must all be in order and must all be correct, or else the protein, ribonuclease, will not work as ribonuclease So the odds for randomly chemically forming ribonuclease are 1 in 17^124).? That is about as easy as getting a royal flush nineteen consecutive times...So science (the) geek.feel free to STOP with your MIS-INFORMATION...As the scientist(s) above calculated the odds
Update 7: to gribblin - Another word jockey pro who specializes in "semantics"....ok idiot (you)... here's a question..when did "evolution" began...when amino acids "evolved" (changed as u say) into protiens.and then (changed/evolved)...into early life?..the scientist(s) quoted above pegs... show more to gribblin - Another word jockey pro who specializes in "semantics"....ok idiot (you)... here's a question..when did "evolution" began...when amino acids "evolved" (changed as u say) into protiens.and then (changed/evolved)...into early life?..the scientist(s) quoted above pegs those odds of this happening to an IMPOSSIBLE EVENT..of 1 in 10^466...I know you would love to IGNORE (the above information)..and concentrate on when fossil appeared..so as to hide behind the evolution ambiguity....typical of atheist supporting their religion of evolution!
Update 8: To gribblin - Yes idiot..we're discussing the IMPOSSIBLITY (odds) against abiogenesis. ANY EVENT WITH ODDS of 10^30..is DISMISSED by mathematicians as NEVER HAPPENING.....(As those scientist point out)....and of course if abiogenesis NEVER HAPPEN...then you atheist / natrualist / scientist have no religion... show more To gribblin - Yes idiot..we're discussing the IMPOSSIBLITY (odds) against abiogenesis.

Thaxton is a Fellow of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture. He has a doctorate in physical chemistry from Iowa State University. He went on to complete post-doctorate programs in the history of science at Harvard University and the molecular biology laboratories of Brandeis University. Thaxton has co-authored several books, including The Mystery of Life's Origin and The Soul of Science. He was the editor of the first edition of the controversial creationism/Intelligent Design textbook, Of Pandas and People.[1] The book was featured prominently in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District and the drafts that show the transition between creation to "cdesign proponentsists"[2] to intelligent design proved important in the judge's decision.........(I think Mr. Thaxton has the qualifications to have his commentary injected on the subject at hand.....
