The simplest conceivable form of life (e.g., bacteria) contains at least 600 different protein molecules. Each of these molecules performs specific functions by fitting into other molecules shaped in exact three-dimensional spacial arrangements. These proteins work like a key fitting into a lock–only a specifically shaped protein will fit. Yet there are multiple trillions of possible combinations of protein molecules and shapes. How could the exactly required shape find the exactly correct corresponding protein in order to perform the required cellular function?

The mathematical probability that the precisely designed molecules needed for the “simplest” bacteria could form by chance arrangement of amino acids (these are the chemicals that link up to form proteins) is far less that 1 in 10 to the 450th power. Most scientists acknowledge that any probability less that 1 in 10 to the 50th power is considered an impossibility. One wonders why this “impossibility” is being taught as a “fact of science” to millions of schoolchildren each year.
