Naturalism's God: Luck

We can accept a certain amount of luck in our explanations, but not too much…. We can allow ourselves the luxury of an extravagant theory [regarding the origin of life on our planet], provided that the odds of coincidence do not exceed 100 billion billion to one [10-20].

Richard Dawkins

Despite all of their intellectual and rhetorical smoke and mirrors, Darwinists are having to fess up: Luck is both the coin and the lever of the slot machine called Naturalism. Clay Jones, Associate Professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University, provides some startling quotes to this effect at his blog. Here’s how he kicks things off:

So how did the universe, and all the complexity we find in living things, arise? There are only two explanations: God or luck. Now, if the Darwinists are correct, this luck is operated on by natural selection but don’t let that fool you: natural selection is still working upon lucky mutations. For the naturalist luck is still at the bottom of the origin of the universe, the origin of life, and the complexity found in living things. Naturalism is, at its core, based upon luck.

I’m going to just pass on some quotes with little commentary.

Try your luck and click here for the rest.
