The science of statistics testifies to the impossibility of evolution. The evolution of the "first" life form requires that thousands of specific components come together in exactly the right way. If you have only six components that need to be combined in a specific order, the number of possible combinations is six factorial (1x2x3x4x5x6), or 720 possibilities. The simplest form of life actually requires thousands of specific chemicals, but let's assume it only needs 200. The odds of 200 chemicals combining in exactly the right way is 1/(1x2x3x4x5...x200). By natural random processes this is likely to happen once every 10 to the 375 power attempts (1 with 375 zeros after it). Yet only one of these combinations can be shown to result in a living cell.
By comparison, the total number of electrons that could be packed into the space available within the entire universe would only be 10130. What are the chances of all of the millions of parts in all of the millions of organisms on Earth all arranging themselves by rendom-chance processes with no intelligence directing them? The science of statistics would tell us that this probability is actually an impossibility. Yet this is exactly what every public school child in America is being led to believe has happened to produce life.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools... - Romans 1:21-22
The present human population of the world supports the Genesis record. According to known historical records, the world's population doubles approximately every 100 years. This population doubling has happened even faster in the last few hundred years, taking place about every 60 years.
Starting with an original population of eight people from the Ark (Noah's family), one can easily calculate that the population would have to double itself a little over 30 times to produce the present world population of 7 billion. If the most straightforward understanding of the Bible is correct, Noah lived about 4,500 years ago. This gives an average doubling interval of almost 150 years, which is very conservative when compared to the observed doubling rate of approximately 100 years.
Now let's assume that evolution is correct and that some apelike creatures turned into people approximately 1,000,000 years ago. You can calculate how many people there should be on Earth based on the historical rate of a population doubling (once every 150 years), starting with two ape-people, and doubling their population every 150 years for 1,000,000 years (6,000 times). The result is more people on the earth than there are atom is the entire universe. If people have been around for as long as evolutionists tell us, there should be more people and lots more bodies. The observable fact perfectly fit a biblical time frame.

Thy word is true from the beginning; and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever. -Psalm 119:160 KJV
The coded instructions contained in the DNA of a human cell would fill 4,000 encyclopedia-sized books with meaningful information. Even if we assume life and matter evolved, there is zero probability that mutations and natural selection produced this tremendous amount of information.
Evolutionists assume that anything is possible with enough time. For instance, it has been stated that given enough time, even a monkey could type out the entire Encyclopedia Britannica. However, it can be calculated that just getting the title "Encyclopedia Britannica" by random trials would only happen one time in ten with 39 zeros following it attempts. One in 10 to the thirty ninth power is approximately the same as one monkey sitting on every square foot of the earth's surface, stacked 10 miles deep, and making one attempt every second for 10 billion years. Yet all these attempts would only result in a correct title one time!
The odds of natural processes producing the information on a single strand of DNA vastly exceed the total number of subatomic particles within the entire known universe. This intelligent information content of our cells could only have been produced by an inconceivably brilliant designer. How could anyone deny the existence of God in face of this evidence?

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. - Psalm 139: 13, 14
At one time living cells were considered no more complex than empty table tennis balls. As biochemists have learned more about the complexity of life, it has become increasingly apparent that thousands of specific complex chemicals are required for any form of life to survive. Evolutionist Harold Morowitz estimated the probability for chance formation of even the simplest form of living organism at 1 in 10 to the 340,000,000 power.
By comparison, only 10 to the 20th power grains of sand could fit within a cubic mile, and 10 billion times more (10 to the thirteenth poser) would fit inside the entire earth. So the probability of forming a simple cell by chance processes is infinitely less likely than having a blind person select one specifically marked grain of sand out of an entire earth filled with sand.
There is nowhere near enough time, nor matter in the entire universe for even the simplest cell to have formed by chance combinations. Even if all the correct chemicals somehow came together in the correct place, you still wouldn't have life. This is exactly the situation every time a living organism dies. Immediately after death, all the right chemicals exist, in the right proportions, and in the right place, yet the creature is still dead!
Five billions years is nowhere near long enough for evolution to have taken place. In reality, all of eternity would not provide enough time for random processes to form the enormous complexity of life.

I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just....
he 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 special 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 than 1 in 10 to the 450th power. Most scientists acknowledge that any probability less than 1 in 10 to the 40th power is considered an impossibility. One wonders why this "impossibility" is being taught as a "fact of science" to millions of school children each year.
