Next Time Someone Accuses God, As Being A Fairy Tale, Remind Them Of The Facts.

Did you know that a new scientific study have calculated the odds of life appearing, on earth, by chance, as less than one in 1010^123?

So, you might ask, as I did, where does it rate with other questions of our time.

Well, science has calculated the odds of there being an omnipotent being, God, as one in 1017. The odds of statistical improbability are one in 1036. They also calculated the odds of statistical impossibility at one in 1050. Statistical Impossibility is defined as,

although not truly impossible, the probability is low enough so as to not bear mention in a rational, reasonable argument.”

So, like back in elementary, let’s put this on a number line.

So, the next time someone accuses God, as being a fairy tale, remind them of the facts.

... and that's what you'll find, When You Search For The Truth


  1. Hi Keith,
    I think I have probably said this before to you. It is a fool that says there is no God! I too believe that most people are denying that there is a God because they simply do not know Him. If they look around at creation and its amazing beauty and workmanship they have to accept that there is a greater One than mankind.
    As for evolution:-) I have always said that if we came from apes then why are apes still around and why are they now all humans.
    God wants all to be saved and I believe He has His way of doing it.
    As I typed this last sentence, a singer on the television in the lounge just sang the words.
    'I will never give up on you.' I believe that is not coincidence.

  2. oops... should have read 'why are they not all humans/'

  3. Yes, I agree. How can anyone look at the complexity of life and all of creation and then deny a creator. As for evolution and man coming from apes, they are saying that we are just a branch from the apes. Pure silliness, if you ask me.

  4. Now you know I don't disagree but this article alone does not help us with the topic. Could you rewrite this giving the scientific citation that shows the calculation? The chart is pretty good.

    Atheists and evolutionists (not always the same thing) will say we branched off the apes not replaced them. We "budded" off the primate vine from them.

  5. Hi Tim,
    my comments are regarding both spoken of in Keith's post - atheists and evolutionists. One does not believe that a God existed, the other believes in evolution (which I do not). There is nothing in scripture that says we evolved from apes, or any other creature.

  6. You got that right!! Just the opposite to evolution...according to their kind. A man does not come from ape and never could.

  7. Hey Tim, I decided a long time ago, to deliberately leave out a lot of supporting evidence. After discussing with a number of people, I came to the conclusion that short generalized posts are read by more people. Leaving out information sparks discussion. However, I will get you the links to you as soon as I get back to my computer.

  8. We know by faith, and because He is the God who reveals Himself.

  9. Hi Keith,
    It just came into my mind as I read your post again that it is also a good thing to pray for those people, as God wants all to be saved and come to the knowledge of salvation through Jesus. There is a time for everything - even to be born spiritually. We must continue to plant and water - and God shall add the increase eh?
    God bless you and your family, hope you are all ok.

  10. Hi Keith, I fully agree with you, but I wish that you would give GOD His Name.
    Remember His Name is Jesus :-)
    Just as it said in John 1:3 that apart from Jesus NOTHING came into being that has come into being.
    Otherwise the readers might think that you are talking about Allah or Jehovah, and the Christians think that you don’t like to give the glory of creation to the Lord Jesus Christ.

  11. It always amazes me that Bible readers don't read their Bibles properly.
    The Bible does not say that we came from the apes, although some of us might look and act like apes.
    Everyone who reads the Bible properly should know that we really come from the animal.
    But to see that, we need eyes to see :-)

  12. Hi Brenda, Everything is fine. Unfortunately, a very busy time of the year. Amen!!!! to what you have said. Also, it is sad that, after all God has gone through to reconcile man back to God, he doesn't get what he wants, for all to come to the knowledge of salvation through Jesus.

    1. I can't imagine God not getting what He wants. With God all things are possible. Regarding how He will do it. 'The secret things belong to God, those revealed belong to us.'

    2. Hi Brenda, I think that's the reason why some people don't understand the relationship between God's Will and man's Free Will. God could make us do anything he wants, but he doesn't. He lets us make our decisions.

  13. Hi Paul, I thought that you had given up on us. I hope all is well. Glad you are back.

    I totally agree that Y'shua is one of God's names. It means Yah Saves or Yah is Salvation. Jehovah is a German mispronunciation of Yahweh, in the same way, Jesus is a English mispronunciation of Y'shua.

    Either way, Jesus, Jehovah, Yahweh, God knows your mind and recognizes that you are referring to him.

    As for Allah, that is the god of the Quoran, not the God of the Bible. Once you have read them both, there can be no confusion. There is no real God other than the God of the Bible. He has proven himself over and over, while the false gods, of this world, fall short.

  14. Hey Paul, I totally agree that people, without eyes, cannot truly understand the Bible.

  15. Thank you my friend for your warm welcome, I hardly get a warm welcome from anyone :-)

    I wonder why ?
    Hmmmm, is it because I tell them the truth ?

    By the way, God's Name is NOT Y'shua, that name is NOT in the Bible.
    No my friend absolutely nowhere found in the Bible.
    You see, God has only ONE Name and that is JESUS, yes my friend it is JESUS ! and it is He who is the Christ and there is NO other Name given under heaven and on earth.

    And only God is the saviour of mankind and NOT a man as you think.
    Jesus Christ spoke through the mouth of the Prophet Isaiah saying, "Look at Me and be SAVED, I am God and there is NO other ! (Isaiah 45:22)"

    Well, do you really believe the Scriptures ?

  16. Hi Paul, I treat you with kindness because I am commanded to do so. We are commanded to agape (be totally committed) each other. As long as you seek the Lord, I will always treat you with kindness.

    As for the rest of your comment, please look at the CJB version. It is an English version of the scriptures. Here is a link. Please pay close attention to Philippians 2:9-11.

    The CJB Version

  17. Keith,
    I really would like these references of odds. I am in a conversation with (guess what) an atheist who is talking about the odds of a God.

  18. Tim, Two of them are as follows:

    What Is the Science Behind Intelligent Design?

    What Are The Odds that there is a God?

    I'll have to get to my home computer for the other ones.

  19. Hi Keith, just to mention-I have left a few replies on the comments on this post and another one or two. You may have noticed them but I am not sure so I thought I would mention just in case you haven't.

    1. Hi Brenda, I have to admit that I do miss some comments, occasionally. If I miss any of yours, please forgive me. It's not intentional.
