Strengths and limitations of radiocarbon dating

If it is tried a million times and still has not occurred, then the possibility of it occurring has reduced to less than one chance in a million!

The point here is that time never works in favor of an event that cannot happen!

He explains that if the event is attempted often enough, the total probability of obtaining it would keep reducing!

If it is tried a thousand times and does not even occur once, and then is tried thousands of more times and never occurs, then the chances of it occurring keeps reducing.

"In a billion years [from now], it seems, intelligent life might be as different from humans as humans are from insects . To change from a human being to a cloud may seem a big order, but it's the kind of change you'd expect over billions of years." Freeman Dyson, Statement made in 1986, quoted in Asimov's Book of Science and Nature Quotations, p. [American mathematician.]"Slowness has really nothing to do with the question.

An event is not any more intrinsically intelligible or unintelligible because of the pace at which it moves.

They wrote:"Once we see, however, that the probability of life originating at random is so utterly minuscule as to make it absurd, it becomes sensible to think that the favorable properties of physics, on which life depends, are in every respect deliberate [i.e., produced by an intelligent mind] . It is, therefore, almost inevitable that our own measure of intelligence must reflect higher intelligences . even to the limit of God."The London Dally Express (August 14, 1981), put the conclusion of these two scientists into headlines: "Two skeptical scientists put their heads together and reach an amazing conclusion: There must be a God."*Hoyle and *Wickramasinghe concluded in their book that the probability of producing life anywhere in the universe from evolutionary processes, was as reasonable as getting a fully operational Boeing 747 jumbo jet from a tornado going through a junkyard.Evolutionary scientists tell us that the past stretches into over a billion years of life on the earth.Man, we are informed, has been here over a million years.In fact, not even the dating methods confirm the dating methods! With but very rare exception, they always disagree with one another!There are a number of very definite problems in those dating methods.This is species evolution, and will be discussed in the chapters on Fossils (chapter 17), Ancient Man (chapter 18), Natural Selection (chapter 13), Mutations (chapter 14), and Species Evolution (chapter 15).
