His universe is deterministic, presumably, because everything happens. End of story. Actually, end of all stories.
Philip Cunningham’s vid on calculations of a single protein forming by chance was picked up recently: Origin: Probability of a Single Protein Forming by Chance: “For a protein made from scratch in a prebiotic soup, the odds of finding such globally optimal solutions are infinitesimally small- somewhere between 1 in 10exp140 and 1 in 10exp164 Read More…
