You want me to believe sorting algorithms work?

Statistics is the wrong math to use concerning evolution. Rather algorithmics is correct. Allow an analogy.

If I used a bubble sort to sort 1000 items in a list, the odds of getting the correct answer is going to be 1000! (1000 factorial). That's 1000*999*998*997...*3*2*1. It's absolutely astronomical! It would like having a tornado hit a beach of sand and just happen to build the Empire State Building and the rest of New York.

That's roughly 4 * 10^2568 it's more than 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 googols all multiplied together! And you're going to tell me that the sorting algorithm just happens to get the correct answer? Any statistician would laugh at you!

You want me to believe sorting algorithms work? You have more faith than religion. THAT'S INSANE!!!
