The God Confusion: Order by chance



Solving a Rubik’s Cube is considered a difficult task, even for the most intelligent people.

Now imagine a blind man, trying to order the scrambled faces of a Rubik’s Cube. He doesn’t know whether any twist he gives the cube brings him closer to or further from his goal. How likely is it for him to solve the cube by chance alone?

Impossible, you would say?

However, if the blind man received a “yes” or “no” prompt at each move his chances of solving the cube would dramatically increase.

This famous analogy is used by Sir Fred Hoyle to demonstrate the unlikelihood of order resulting from pure chance. Hoyle believes that sophisticated order cannot arise from accidental chance without the involvement of some form of prompting or superior intelligence.

In this respect, it seems highly improbable that the universe, being the most complex and sophisticated form of order, came about by chance. The odds against the accidental formation of the origin of life are considerably worse than the odds against a blind man’s solution of the Rubik’s Cube. We know that the universe is an organized system governed by natural laws and intricate balances. To think of it as something that has been accidently arranged is, in the words of Hoyle, like saying the solar system is full of blind men solving Rubik’s Cubes simultaneously’. Consequently, it is reasonable to assume that the universe has a higher intelligence or organiser. This ‘organiser’ is best explained by the existence of God.

About Akhi Soufyan

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden.
