More Cosmological Evidence
by Levy Oates
There has been much discussion about the incredible fine tuning of the universe in order to produce intelligent life. The odds against everything being set up in just the right way are clearly too high to be mere coincidence.
A further example of this can be seen in Mount Everest. Everest has a height of about 8km, giving it a volume of about 8.5×10^16 cubic centimetres. Assuming that it has similar density to basalt (2.7 grams per cubic centimetre) that gives it a mass of about 2.3×10^17 grams. As basalt primarily consists of SiO2 which has an atomic mass of approx 50 g/mole, that implies the self assembly of some 2.7×10^39 molecules in order to create Mount Everest!!!
The odds against this happening by accident are literally astronomical. These are such stupendously, unbelievably, phantasmogorgously unlikely odds that it simply MUST mean is was designed by an intelligent being with the sole purpose of giving Sir Edmund Hilary something to do at the weekend. This provides absolutely incontrovertible, unanswerable evidence that the universe was created in order to support the emergence of mountain climbers.
