What Are the Odds That God exists?

Did you know that a yeast cell and a Boeing 777 airplane have the same number of parts and the same level of complexity? For a Boeing 777 it is almost easy to explain how it all came about, it’s a product of human genius; the designers, the engineers, the mechanics and so on. But how do we account for the millions of parts of a yeast cell as well as its complexity? How did it all come together? The only scientific explanation about it is that it came together only through random occurrence. Yes you read that right. It came together through an act of random occurrence. The theory of comparison between the complexity and parts of a Boeing 777 and a yeast cell is attributed to a British astro-physicist Sir Fred Hoyle. I digress.

Ever heard of a deep sea sponge known as Euplectella? Well if you haven’t then you’ve heard it here first. A Euplectella is a deep sea sponge also known as a Venus flower basket. (It is a common customary gift in Asia as it signifies romantic love; this is because within each sponge dwells a male and a female shrimp confined in their nest. When they mate, their offspring swim out into the sea to find out their own nest in another Euplectella) The sponge’s skeleton is formed of millions of glass fibers interwoven so intricately that their design has caught the attention of the makers of fiber optics; Euplectella converts silicic acid found in sea water, into silica, the chemical basis of glass. Just so you know, science has been unable to explain this complexity.

This brings me back to you. From these two examples, what are the odds that God exists?
