A book for kicking in the teeth of the atheists , Stephen Meyer’s Return Of The God Hypothesis throws down the gauntlet with regards to three areas wherein the enemies of God have anchored their diabolical grimoires and resultant corrupt industries and institutions that purport to pin down the mysterium tremendum that is being .
From the big-bang right through to Neo-darwinism , Meyer shows definitively , using the established orthodox data itself , that their model of the universe is not only impossibly unlikely , but entirely absurd .
Antagonistic pseudo-intellectual cunts and militant atheists like Richard Dawkins and his ilk now find themselves with their backs against the wall , a second away from execution . Even leading new atheist thinkers such as Peter Atkins have laid their shallowness bare in Oxford debates against the dignified Meyer :
Quote from book: “In my book Signature in the Cell, I perform updated calculations of the probability of the origin of even a single functional protein or corresponding functional gene (the section of a DNA molecule that directs the synthesis of a particular protein) by chance alone. My calculations are based upon recent experiments in molecular biology establishing the extreme rarity of functional proteins in relation to the total number of possible arrangements of amino acids corresponding to a protein of a given length. Taking that and several other relevant independent factors into account, I show that the probability of producing even a single functional protein of modest length (150 amino acids) by chance alone in a prebiotic environment stands at no better than a “vanishingly small” 1 chance in 10(to the)164, an inconceivably small probability. To put this number in perspective, recall that physicists estimate that there are only 10(tothe)80 elementary particles in the entire universe.”
Unlike me , dear reader , Stephen Meyer does not taunt and berate his intellectual opponents , but instead offers an extremely conscientious , scholarly method of discourse and composition . The outcome is , therefore , even more devastating to the other side .
