Science: "Evolution" impossible anywhere else in Universe, Earth was "lucky"
Popular Mechanics article

quote:

In newly published research from Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute, scientists study the likelihood of key times for evolution of life on Earth and conclude that it would be virtually impossible for that life to evolve the same way somewhere else.


quote:

Life has come a very long way in a very short time on Earth, relatively speaking—and scientists say that represents even more improbable luck for intelligent life that is rare to begin with.


quote:

statisticians say the likelihood of life evolving on Earth is even less than we thought. Analysis suggests individual steps in evolution were more likely to take longer than Earth's existence


LINK to study for self analysis

7 days too short? Well 13 Billion years seems too short too.

for smart people, scientist sure make up some outlandish BS. If they would stop trying to prove God isn't real, they might do some really cool stuff

You're right, an invisible wizard in the sky makes much more sense.

From dirt & water to the human eye in 4,000,000,000 years. Seems impossible

Chicken can't do that. It would cut traffic by 2/3.

It’s beyond your comprehension. Some things are just meant to not be understood and are beyond human comprehension.

Well duh.

Life evolving on Earth was an astronomical longshot... the same thing happening the same way somewhere else is obviously impossible.

I am far from a theologian of even amateur status, but this is probably the most sophomoric straw man in all of human debate. The atheist with the alleged scientific upper hand resorting to this tactic isn't even worth engaging.
