I have encountered many people who justify their belief that no intelligent Creator was needed, with the assumption that evolution has had a near-infinite number of trials to produce the full diversity of life. It is helpful, therefore, to figure out what the upper limit actually is, then we can be in a better position discuss whether it makes a Creator utterly unnecessary.
One mistake Darwinists make when discussing the probability of functional protein sequences is to spread out a deck of cards and point out how improbable that sequence of cards was. The reasoning seems to be that since improbable events happen all the time, therefore there is no problem finding a functional 3D protein sequence. Upon thinking critically about this, most people suspect there is a problem with this assumption. Here I explain why.
It may be impossible to fully understand the divine Trinity this side of death. Nonetheless, I believe there is an example of another trinity, much closer to us than we realize, that might advance our understanding of the Triune God who is Father, Son and Spirit.
In over a century of selective breeding experiments to see how far we can evolve a plant or animal, we consistently observe limits to how much an organism can change. It almost seems as if plants and animals were designed to reproduce after their own kind, rather than evolve new kinds. Now, science may have discovered why. Each kind of life may have a subset of genes that are unique to that organism.
The recent classification by psychiatrists in the field to recognize pedophilia as a sexual orientation raises some interesting philosophical questions in the area of morality, especially for Christians who have adjusted their moral compass as a result of certain arguments.
