James Coppedge, Ph.D., director of the center of probability research in biology in California, applied the laws of probability to the probability of a single (simple) cell coming into existence by chance. It would take 10 to the 119,841th power years.
Emil Borel, the great French scientist and probability expert, points out that if anything on the cosmic level is of a probability ratio of more than 10 to the 50th power to 1, it never will happen.
