Quote  I’m not sure why the evos don’t understand the logic. Maybe a more specific example would help: Every time Boeing assembles a 747, that is evidence that nature operating freely can’t do it. According to wikipedia, there have been 1,416 747’s built, so the chances of one arising through a “tornado in a junkyard” scenario must be less than 1/1,416, otherwise we would have observed one already. By independence, the probability that 747’s cannot arise through chance and necessity is 1  (1/1,416)^1,416 which is 1 according to my calculator.

Where does one begin pointing out the ridiculousness of this comparison/calculation? For example, does one also assume that Boeing assembles planes in one step? If not, how can you even compare them honestly? (I know the answer, BTW, just venting)
