According to Biological Scientists, around one hundred million species have existed since the earth was formed. 30 million are thought to still exist. [Source: PBS Documentary (Take it for what it’s worth; the exact number is not that important for the point of this post.)]

Only one species has ever cooked their own food, harnessed and used electricity, visited the moon, transplanted a heart, painted a Mona Lisa, died to save the life of someone else, written a book, embarrassed themselves blogging, and worshiped God (that we know of).

Doesn’t it take an almost unbelievable amount of faith to believe something would happen based on the odds of 1 in 100,000,000? What kind of intelligence does it take to place a bet for eternity on only 1 chance in 100,000,000 of being right? Can a person be a scientist and not understand finite math?
