And they call this science

Sir Fred Hoyle Hoyle, Chandra Wickramasinghe and Francis Crick were all world-renowned scientists who were atheists. The following are excerpts from a book which discusses their work on the origin of life:
Hoyle ran the numbers to determine the mathematical probability of the basic
enzymes of life arising by random processes. They conclude that the odds were 1
to 1 followed by 40,000 zeros, or ‘so utterly minuscule’ as to make Darwin’s
theory of evolution absurd.”

In order to explain the creation of the universe while carefully excluding God, Hoyle and Wickramasinghe came up with a theory called ‘panspermia,’ which holds that life began in space and spread to Earth by a steady influx of microscopic infectious agents delivered to Earth on comets.

Francis Crick, winner of the Nobel Prize for his codiscovery of DNA, also realized that spontaneous evolution of life could not be reconciled with the facts. As he said, ‘the probability of life originating at random is so utterly minuscule as to make it absurd.’ Consequently, Crick hypothesized that highly intelligent extraterrestrials sent living cells to Earth on an unmanned spaceship…”

Ahh, but more recent evolutionists speak of computer simulations proving evolution to be true. “…in his book River Out of Eden, Dawkins blathers on and on about ‘computer models of evolving eyes.”

David Berlinski got to the bottom of the famed computer simulation, tracking down scientists alleged to have performed this wonderous feat, and discovered…it doesn’t exist.

In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Science, Tom Bethell quotes Berlinski’s summary f the evidence: ‘…There is no such model anywhere in any laboratory. No one has the faintest idea how to make one. The whole story was fabricated out of thin air by Richard Dawkins. The senior author of the study on which Dawkins based his claim—Dan E. Nilsson—has explicitly rejected the idea that his laboratory has ever produced a computer simulation of the eyes’ development” (All quotations from Coulter, Godless, 208, 210-211).
So there you have it. Honest atheists like Hoyle, Wickramasinghe and Crick realize that it is simply impossible for life to have originated spontaneously on earth by itself so they propose that it originated someplace else—some place that, conveniently, places it out of the reach of scientists to examine the evidence. And they call this science!
